Renewable Energy

Recognizing its growing value in enhancing energy efficient and sustainable designs, Morrissey Engineering has taken a leading role in integrating renewable energy systems into the designs of new and existing facilities.

Our staff includes individuals with special expertise in systems that capture energy from renewable sources such as sunlight, wind and underground heat (geothermal energy). Our own 4940 Building, designed by Morrissey Engineering staff, in Omaha, Nebraska includes solar, wind and geothermal systems that have helped contribute to a 40 percent savings in utilities. 

Whether your interest in renewable energy comes from a desire to offset the effects of distributed power production (burning of coal, transmission inefficiency), gain independence from the electrical grid, realize energy cost savings or ensure energy cost stability moving into the future, Morrissey Engineering can identify and design an appropriate renewable energy system for you.

We begin by helping you establish your needs and goals by answering the following questions:

  • What are the economic requirements that must be met for my project to be successful?
  • How important are the aesthetics and display component of my system(s)?
  • Has energy efficiency (such as higher efficiency equipment, advanced lighting control systems) already been maximized at my site?
  • Do I want my facility to have no electric utility connection? If I do have utility connection, do I expect my renewable energy system to operate during a utility power outage?

Morrissey Engineering is an ENERGY STAR partner and one of the most experienced LEED consulting engineering firms in the state.
