Presentation slides from Defining and Including Energy Goals in the Contractual Process: Examples from the NREL campus presentation given at the NASA Net-Zero Energy workshop June 5-6, 2012.
Researcher Jennifer Scheib and Research Engineer Shanti Pless of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Phil Macey, AIA, explain the replicable procurement process used to design and construct an 1,800 space parking facility at NREL's South Table campus. Their presentation will touch upon specific solutions the designers utilized to meet their goal of building a highly energy efficient garage at a reasonable cost.
Federal Emergency Management Program (FEMP) First Thursday Seminar on Goal Based Contracting for Energy Efficient Buildings
A recast of a presentation done for the Fairfax Chapter of Association of Energy Engineers in November of 2013. Presentation focuses on the the Advanced Energy Design Guides published by ASHRAE with association of AIA, USGBC, and IES with funding and technical support from DOE, NREL, and PNNL. In addition, the DOE Advanced Retrofit Guides are also discussed. Both sets of guides are available for download from this resource database.
A presentation by Shanti Pless, Senior Energy Efficiency Research Engineer, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, given at the greengov symposium September 25, 2012.
This fact sheet summarizes recommendations for designing elementary, middle, and high school buildings that will result in 50% less energy use than conventional new schools built to minimum code requirements. The recommendations are drawn from the Advanced Energy Design Guide for K-12 School Buildings, an ASHRAE publication that provides comprehensive recommendations for designing low-energy-use school buildings.
Designed as a stand-alone document, this fact sheet provides key principles and a set of prescriptive design recommendations appropriate for smaller schools with insufficient budgets to fully implement best practices for integrated design and optimized performance. The recommendations have undergone a thorough analysis and review process through ASHRAE, and have been deemed an easily replicable combination of measures to achieve 50% savings in K-12 schools.
Find the presentation for the June 3, 2015 webinar on the 50% Advanced Energy Design Guide for Grocery Stores below.
The guide shows practical ways for grocery stores to achieve a 50% energy savings over ASHRAE 90.1-2004 and exceeds the requirements of 90.1-2013. Intended for grocery stores owners and designers, the guide includes specialty sections for refrigeration and food service found, not only in grocery stores but in convenience stores and food service establishments as well.
Speakers highlighted the guide, providing practical how-to tips to achieve the 50% savings level. The guide also helps those who build or design retail stores that may include refrigeration.
Below are the speakers from the webinar.

"Zero Net Energy (ZNE) is the future, and in a growing number of places the present, of building design and energy policy. A growing strategy to get to ZNE is to separate the building’s heating/cooling from the ventilation/dehumidification. Design firms and owners are striving to meet heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) loads with optimum comfort and minimal energy. Radiant systems can provide heating and cooling through pipes while ventilation and any humidity control requirements are efficiently met by a Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS). This guide provides an overview of Radiant Heating and Cooling + DOAS systems."
This resource is a presentation showing how complex energy goals are being achieved for the Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF) using a design/build project delivery method.
