CDH Energy Overview

We provide energy system and technology analysis.

We use both field monitoring and energy simulation skills to assess technologies, verify savings, assess markets, or determine application feasibility. Applications include: building system design options analysis, energy savings project feasibility studies, product assessment and technology research and demonstration.

CDH Energy Corp. was founded in 1994 to provide energy analysis services for utilities, government labs, research organizations, building owners, and industrial clients.

Sept 2014 – CDH Energy and GTI International Join Forces

On September 5, 2014, CDH Energy Corp. was acquired by GTI International, a subsidiary of Gas Technology Institute (GTI), a leading research, development and training organization serving the natural gas industry and energy markets for more than 70 years.

GTI is a highly regarded not-for-profit organization delivering technical solutions along the entire natural gas value chain—supply, delivery, and end use—offering an integrated systems perspective to expand the supply of affordable energy, ensure a safe and reliable energy delivery infrastructure, and promote the efficient use of energy resources.

GTI has expertise in power generation and combined heat and power, industrial process heat and steam, natural gas-solar thermal hybrid equipment, full-fuel cycle measures of energy use, and residential/commercial appliances and equipment.

CDH and GTI have complementary skills in energy efficiency and energy system and technology analysis, opening many new cross-business opportunities. GTI’s Emerging Technology Program (ETP) accelerates the market introduction and acceptance of new emerging technologies to feed utility energy efficiency programs. GTI subsidiary Fisher-Nickel, Inc. (FishNick) is a professional services firm with deep expertise in commercial kitchen energy efficiency and appliance performance testing.

Both GTI and its subsidiaries will benefit from CDH’s experience, data and significant insight on building and equipment operation culled from its powerful website and dynamic reporting tools.

Hugh Henderson, Jr., P.E., CDH Energy Principal, Adam Walburger, CDH Energy Principal will remain on as employees of the company, and all of our staff will remain on board as well.

This new arrangement will strengthen CDH’s capabilities and offerings in the growing energy efficiency space and allow both CDH Energy and GTI to increase value to our clients and have greater market impact.

May 2012 – CDH, on behalf of Energy Efficient Buildings (EEB) HUB, complete installation of a comprehensive monitoring of a building in Philadelphia Naval Yard

CDH Energy Corp. is completing installation of a comprehensive monitoring system of a building in the Philadelphia Naval Yard. This project is funded by the Department of Energy, through Pennsylvania State University. The building being monitored is one of the most heavily instrumented buildings in the world; there are over 1550 data points installed in the various building systems. This extensive monitoring of energy use is being done to aid in improving energy modeling software and to document energy efficiency improvements in the building. The extensive instrumentation will result in data that will illustrate the impact of retrofits and repairs that are made over the next few months. Every aspect of building facility systems are being monitored including HVAC, domestic hot water (DHW), lighting and indoor air quality. The project will help to improve the way building facilities are managed. Data is being collected at 1 minute intervals and is available in real time, to authorized users.

December 2011 - CDH and ARIES Start New BUILDING AMERICA PROJECT to Develop Field Test Protocol for Oil-Heated Homes

CDH Energy Corp has begun a project to develop a test protocol to verify energy savings in retrofitted homes that use oil heat. This protocol will support the US Department of Energy's (DOE) Better Buildings Program. The research project will use the detailed measurements of oil use from several homes to verify that low cost field measurement approaches can accurately predict the fuel consumption of oil-fired furnaces and boilers. The DOE Building America research program seeks to develop integrated energy systems that substantially reduce annual energy consumption while improving building comfort, safety, performance and durability, all in a cost effective manner. CDH Energy is a member of the ARIES Collaborative (Advanced Residential Integrated Energy Solutions); one of several research teams that are part of the Building America Progarm. ARIES team is led by The Levy Partnership in New York and also includes The Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems, Southern Energy Management, NYSERDA and other organizations. The ARIES Collaborative has worked in the Building America Program since the beginning of 2011.
