Improved Analysis Methods for Retrofit Savings and Energy Accounting (ERAP #227)
MetadataShow full item record
This report summarizes progress through November, 1990 for ERAP project No. 227, "Improved Analysis Methods for Retrofit Savings and Energy Accounting." The major objectives of this project are to: (1) determine the energy and dollar savings from energy conservation retrofits; (2) reduce energy costs by identifying and correcting operational and maintenance problems at retrofitted facilities; (3) identify savings from individual retrofits to help improve future retrofit selection; and (4) initiate an end-use data base for commercial and institutional buildings to facilitate the comparison and exchange of building energy use information.
DescriptionA grocery store, two nursing homes, an institutional building, and a high school have been selected as preliminary case study buildings. All of the buildings except the nursing homes have been instrumented to provide sub-metered and total energy use data. Additional buildings in the Texas LoanSTAR program are also instrumented and are being analyzed.
