Evaluating and Monitoring Energy Conservation in Multibuilding Clusters with Statistical Models
MetadataShow full item record
A standardized method for modeling energy consumption in mixed clusters of residential and commercial buildings is described. The basic approach is to delineate energy consumption along three dimensions: time, day-length, and temperature. The temperature-sensitive portion of energy consumption is captured by the Princeton Scorekeeping Method (PRISM). The time- and daylength-sensitive portions of energy consumption are captured by other variables. The models were designed to aid in determining the scope and performance of alternative financing activities on a U.S. Army base.
