Bryan Cave LLP (formerly Holme Roberts & Owen LLP, headquartered in Denver, Colorado), an international law firm, partered with the U.S Department of Energy (DOE) to develop and implement solutions to retrofit existing buildings to reduce annual energy consumption by at least 30% versus pre-retrofit energy use as part of DOE’s Commercial Building Partnership (CBP) program.
PNC Financial Services partnered with DOE's Commercial Building Partnerships (CBP) Program to develop and implement solutions to retrofit its existing Singer Island, Florida, branch to reduce energy consumption by at least 30% versus ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2004. Construction was completed in January 2012.
A case study of the overview, process, and results of the re-tuning that was conducted in a building in Arlington, Virginia by Vornado Realty Trust in October 2012. Re-tuning provided the facilities management team with the ability to identify and understand building scheduling opportunities that drove significant, low-cost energy savings. Five measures were conducted, many of which pertained to the HVAC system.
This dynamic document provides background information to any potential audience of building re-tuning training. This document provides background information specifically geared toward small- to medium-sized commercial building operations. It introduces basic building energy terminology associated with building energy use to “prime” targeted participants to get the most out of the building re-tuning training. The intent is for participants who are less familiar with the concepts to review this material before taking the building re-tuning training class.
The primary audience for this instructor manual is the person who will be teaching the re-tuning course. In addition, community college instructors, retro-commissioning training providers and building operator training providers may find value in the material presented in this instructor manual as well. The purpose of this course is to help building operations staff to learn how to operate buildings more efficiently, reduce operating cost and provide energy savings. The knowledge and skills learned through the training will be highly valued by organizations and companies seeking to improve the performance of
7x7x7: Design Energy Water is an innovative program by the Division of the State Architect that encouraged California school districts to develop long-range master plans that reduce energy and water consumption on campuses and improve the quality of educational spaces. The State Architect engages seven architectural firms to develop seven conceptual case studies that reduce school energy and water consumption and result in better learning environments on seven different types of campuses (six K-12 schools and a community college). The seven campuses are representative of typical building types from different eras constructed across California’s varied climate zones. The purpose and primary goal of this program is to enable all existing K-14 facilities to be zero energy by 2030.
Develop a simple document and Web-based information guidebook to help commercial building software developers, energy managers, and control companies implement strategies for commercial building energy analysis and performance monitoring. This project will use the following book as a model for the design of the handbook: Builder's Guide to Mixed Climates: Details for Design and Construction by Joseph W. Lstiburek. February 2001. Taunton Press. ISBN 156158388X.
In order to seize the opportunities for improving energy performance in the United States, it is important to understand what drives American companies and building owners to adopt efficiency improvements and sustainability policies. The research in this report provides new insights on how to create high-performing buildings and how to make the right business case to seize these opportunities.
