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.
This guide covers each major step in procuring a solar photovoltaic (PV) system:
- Conducting technical and financial studies
- Financing a PV system
- Project execution
- Operations and maintenance
- Assessing benefits
The guide provides information on the basic steps, key considerations, and where to go for more information. It is intended to provide an overview and some level of detail, with pointers to highly detailed information and resources.
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 discusses NREL's production of conceptual microgrid designs—plans for electrical generation and distribution systems capable of autonomous operation—that deliver reliable, economical, and sustainable energy.
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.
Webinar from March 18, 2010, on how to achieve net-zero energy performance through a performance-based design/build process.
