Energy Use Patterns and Savings Analysis Report for Caterpillar Financial, Nashville, TN
MetadataShow full item record
DescriptionThis report includes the building energy use patterns analysis and savings estimation updated to September 2012 for Caterpillar Financial, Nashville, TN. The analysis of this building is based on IPMVP Option C1, which is based on the whole facility performance. During the pre-Continuous Commissioning (CC2)period, a empirical model was developed using statistical techniques on the energy consumption data, which reflect the physical relationships between independent variable (outside air temperature) and the dependent variable (energy use). The relationship could be reflected by simple average, linear regression, or multi-parameter change point models. The developed baseline model is used to predict what the energy usage would be had the CC process not occurred, and then it is compared with the provided actual energy use. The differences between the predicted consumption and the actual measured consumption are the energy savings.
