Become more powerless.

Power. It consumes resources both natural and monetary. Every degree, light, and outlet. Every BTU comes at a price. And when it comes to commercial spaces, that price is too often more – much more – than necessary.

Energy Studio specializes in helping architects, engineers, developers, and building owners maximize energy efficiency and minimize costs.

Read more about our mission.

So when it comes to energy consumption, we make big spaces* act small. And be as powerless as possible.

*We consider anything over 10,000 square feet to be “big.”

Properly applied science.

Energy management, when done right, means looking at the big picture.

We want to connect with owners, operators, engineers and architects who share our interest in understanding where energy is being used in buildings and how it can be saved.

Whatever service you need from us, trust that much more will be delivered every time.

Energy Modeling
Energy modeling, when done right, is more than just plugging some figures into a computer program. It includes knowing what questions to ask and to whom. Keeping up with the latest energy-saving methods. Knowing how energy tweaks can affect design, budgets, schedules and much more.

Initiated early and utilized throughout the design process, energy modeling can help architects and engineers study design alternatives and make energy-conscious decisions.

Calibrated energy modeling replicates an existing building’s envelope, lighting and HVAC systems to assess energy performance and develop methods to reduce consumption, demand and cost.

Energy Management
You can’t manage what you don’t measure. Do you know your building’s EUI and the cost implications? How are you performing compared to other buildings? Could it be better? These are the questions we want to answer.

Effective energy management involves identifying and understanding where and why energy is used in a building and using that information to measure, manage, and minimize consumption. This can take many forms, from Utility Bill Analysis or Life-Cycle Cost Analysis to Energy Audits, Measurement & Verification, or Building Retuning, and can include a variety of partnerships, certifications, incentive programs or financing mechanisms.

We view energy management as a process, and understand there is no ‘one size’ solution for every project.

Contact us to discuss how we can help make your building more powerless.

Need a presenter at your next professional meeting? We provide speakers to cover a variety of topics; IAQ, energy audits, existing buildings, energy modeling and more.

We also understand that every building is unique, and energy use is highly dependent on operation and function. Want to understand your building better? We can help. Contact us.


Over a billion watt-hours saved.*

Here is a sampling of the numerous projects we’ve been involved in.

Some are quite disparate, others a bit similar. But all ended up creating a smaller energy footprint.

*A very, very low estimate.

Our capacity is just right.

Amanda Bogner

PE, BEMP, President

Amanda, founder and president, went to KU for Architectural Engineering (Rock Chalk Jayhawk) and believes beautiful architecture is inherently sustainable. Her passion is to make beautiful buildings energy efficient too. When the weather cooperates, you can find her cycling or cross country skiing.

Annie Koch

PE, Project Manager

Annie Koch is Energy Studio’s resident world traveler. She isn’t your average tourist, though; Annie spent a year studying abroad in Germany (where she took engineering classes in German – autsch!) and taught English in Thailand for another. She loves learning about people and experiencing different ways of life, and has the heavily stamped passport to prove it.

Nick Mandel

PE, Senior Energy Analyst

Nick Mandel love to tinker. In his free time, he dissects machines and puts them back together, curious about what made them tick. His passion for figuring out how things worked naturally led him to engineering, which he studied at UNL. Today, Nick brings over a decade of professional mechanical engineering experience to his work at Energy Studio. When he isn’t solving energy puzzles, Nick stays active learning new skills and spending time in the great outdoors. He also enjoys running and hiking with his wife and their Weimaraner, Wheatie.

Colin Miller

Energy Analyst

As long as he can remember, Colin has had a fascination with two things: buildings and the environment. Upon realizing these things could be combined into a career, working for Energy Studio was a no-brainer. Whether it is through his work as an Energy Analyst or by choosing to ride his electric skateboard instead of driving his car, Colin is constantly trying to make the world a greener place.

Alycia Noble

Project Manager

Some people are just destined to make the world a better place. Technically Alycia’s an energy analyst, but there’s a lot more to her story. With her Masters in Architectural Engineering from UNO/UNL, she’s passionate about saving energy, money, and the environment. Energy-awesomeness aside, she may not tell you that she’s also somewhat of a dog geek – serving as president of a local dog club, and training her German Shepherd, Hannah.

Jessica Renner

PE, BEMP, Project Manager

Jess is what you would call a total powerhouse. She went to UNO/UNL for Architectural Engineering, but that’s just the beginning. By day, Jess performs energy analysis; by night, you can catch her jammin’ with her (Omaha Entertainment Award nominated) band Edge of Arbor. You’d never guess that she’s a total gearhead, and used to help her dad build stock cars. Rock on!
