Development of the Potential Energy Savings Estimation (PESE) Toolkit
MetadataShow full item record
This study has developed a prototype computer tool called the Potential Energy Savings Estimation (PESE) Toolkit. Baltazar’s methodology for potential energy savings estimation from EBCx/retrofit measures has been improved in several ways and implemented in the PESE Toolkit, which is based on VBA (Visual Basic for Application ) and Microsoft® Excel spreadsheets for input and output. It is intended to help engineers in estimating the potential energy savings in a given building and identifying the corresponding energy conservation measures (ECMs) in the early phase of an EBCx project or energy retrofit project. Using the tool requires limited information about the building and the built-in HVAC system type, as well as sorted bin weather and energy consumption data. It provides comprehensive output of energy costs and savings, energy use, space loads, and system parameters. The tool is also illustrated in an example of application.
