This presentation highlights the importance of modeling the off-design performance of equipment in data centers as a consequence of their dynamic behavior and describes an experimentally validated tool for modeling the energy use of the data center and cooling infrastructure.
The Fire Station Efficiency Solutions Package aims to assist municipalities nationwide to reduce carbon footprints, lower utility bills, and increase resiliency by selecting improvements that will reduce energy and water use in existing buildings by at least 20%. This toolkit is a product of a collaboration between the City of Atlanta and Southface Energy Institute. Through this solutions package, municipalities and fire departments will be equipped to plan and implement individual and portfolio-level upgrades.
This paper illustrates the challenges of integrating rigorous daylight and electric lighting simulation data with whole-building energy models, and defends the need for such integration in order to achieve aggressive energy savings in building designs. Through a case study example, we examine the ways daylighting – and daylighting simulation – drove the design of a large net-zero energy project.
