Neal Ray

Mechanical Engineer

Mr. Ray started at the Center for Energy and Environment in May of 2008.  Since his start at CEE, he has been involved in a number of commissioning projects in schools and several different existing building commissioning projects.  He has experience with many different building automation systems and knowledge of how they are setup and operate.  

During the last few years at CEE, Mr. Ray has been a project engineer for the Public Buildings Enhanced Energy Efficiency Program (PBEEEP), a State run program administered by CEE.  His role in that program is to provide quality assurance so that the savings and cost estimates prepared by independent engineering firms are as accurate as possible and that the measures being recommended are appropriate.  

Mr. Ray has five years Existing Building Commissioning (EBCx) experience. He has worked with schools, office buildings, and industrial facilities in Minnesota. EBCx is the investigation of building automation systems and mechanical equipment for improved energy efficiency.
