NOx, SOx and CO2 Emissions Reduction from Continuous Commissioning® (CC®) Measures at the Rent-A-Car Facility in the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport
MetadataShow full item record
The Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL) at the Texas Engineering Experiment Station, Texas A&M University System was contracted to fulfill a Continuous Commissioning® (CC®)project on the Rent-a-Car facility (RAC) of the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFWIA) in which energy savings are directly related to an emission reduction that can be credited. The purpose of this study is to estimate the creditable emissions reductions from energy efficiency CC® measures in the RAC of DFWIA.
DescriptionThe energy savings were evaluated thru weather normalized inverse modeling. Baseline data, pre-CC®, and the post-CC® data were modeled as a function of the weather. The electricity savings were calculated by the difference of the baseline model and the measured post-CC® data of the facility. Similarly, these models were applied to weather of 1999 and the potential savings at that year were documented. The documented savings at RAC were then converted to NOx, CO2, and SO2 emissions reduction on a tons/year and tons/peak-day basis using TCEQ/ESL’s emissions reduction methodology and EPA’s eGRID emissions data base.
