The Advanced Energy Retrofit Guide for Grocery Stores was created to help grocery store decision makers plan, design, and implement energy improvement projects in their facilities. It was designed with energy managers in mind, and presents practical guidance for kick-starting the process and maintaining momentum throughout the project life cycle.
An in-depth look at how the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory used a performance-based design-build contract process to build one of the most energy efficient office buildings in the world.
This advanced specification provides energy guidelines for a highly efficient low voltage distribution transformer.
This draft specification provides a description of performance characteristics for high-efficiency commercial electric storage water heaters.
This advanced specification provides energy guidelines for a highly efficient ultra-low temperature laboratory freezer.
This draft specification provides a description of performance characteristics for high-efficiency fume hood models. Fume hoods are used to exhaust hazardous gases from laboratory activities, and are typically found in commercial buildings that contain laboratories, such as hospitals, universities, and research facilities. The final specification will be developed with Commercial Building Energy Alliance (CBEA) member and manufacturer input and include minimum requirements that will be of interest to a critical number of CBEA members.
Carefully designed and operated building entrances can help control energy consumption and operating costs, as well as increase occupant comfort. This guide provides methods and examples that can be used by retail building engineers to produce preliminary savings estimates for two types of entrance energy efficiency measures: vestibule additions and door operation changes.
This draft specification provides a description of required performance characteristics for high-efficiency gas unit heaters. Commercial buildings with large open spaces use gas unit heaters as a localized heating source, often in addition to central heating systems.
This document is part of the Best Practices for Laboratories for the 21st Century Handbook and focuses on energy recovery for laboratories. It applies to both federal and private sector facilities.
