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.
The Advanced Energy Retrofit Guide for K-12 Schools is one of five retrofit guides commissioned by the U.S. Department of Energy. By presenting general project planning guidance as well as more detailed descriptions and financial payback metrics for the most important and relevant energy efficiency measures, the guides provide a practical roadmap for effectively planning and implementing performance improvements in existing buildings. The K-12 Schools guide provides convenient and practical guidance for making cost-effective energy efficiency improvements in public, private, and parochial schools.
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities can help in the design of new healthcare facilities that are 30% more energy efficient than current industry standards using ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999 as a benchmark. This saves energy but also supports the other design goals important to healthcare facilities: to improve the patient experience, enhance the healing environment, increase staff retention, lower construction and operating costs, contribute to an environmentally conscious building design, and improve the bottom-line performance of the healthcare facility.
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for K-12 School Buildings is the second in a series of Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) publications designed to provide strategies and recommendations for achieving 50% energy savings over the minimum code requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings.
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for Medium to Big Box Retail Buildings is designed to provide recommendations to achieve 50% energy savings for retail buildings 20,000 to 100,000 ft2. Energy costs are typically the second-highest operating expense for a retailer, so use of this guide can help in creating a cost-effective design for new retail buildings and major renovations that will consume substantially less energy compared to the minimum code-compliant design and that will result in lower operating costs.
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for Large Hospitals shows that existing reliable technologies and design philosophies can be used to reduce energy use in large hospitals by up to 50% of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004 recommendations.
