Notable Accomplishments: During his career thus far, Keazer’s work has been focused
on the reduction of energy consumption in numerous new construction projects through building energy modeling, life cycle cost analysis, commissioning and measurement and verification of energy savings, including involvement in over 20 LEED projects. Most notably, Keazer participated in the design of the Missouri Alternative and Renewable Energy Technology (MARET) Center, a net zero energy building at Crowder College. He provided design guidance and feedback via energy modeling, and is currently providing measurement and verification analysis of the energy performance of the building. In addition, he has performed many energy audits of existing buildings and campuses, primarily healthcare and higher education facilities, and has developed strategic energy plans which lay out a path for achieving clients’ long range energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals. Keazer’s current work includes optimization and improved utilization of building automation systems, including automated fault detection and daily energy performance reporting.
