Thermal Storage for Energy Efficient Structures (Poteet High School Case Study)
MetadataShow full item record
Poteet High School, in Mesquite, Texas, is a facility that demonstrates state-of-the-art environmental control through the application of energy conserving technologies relative to architecture, HVAC and lighting. It is also recognized as an "Intelligent Building" by virtue of the fact that it automatically adjusts to, and supports the needs of, its occupants without help from facility operating personnel. This paper provides information relative to the system components groupings of envelope, electrical system and equipment and mechanical systems and equipment. Each of the systems operating cycles are described and the major benefits of this design concept are summarized.
