The Research Support Facility complex (RSF, RSF II, parking garage, and associated site lighting) was designed to produce more on-site renewable energy than it uses over the course of a typical weather year, when accounted for at the site. To date, the end use performance monitoring and verification suggests that when the RSF complex is fully built out, we will meet the annual energy use goals. Continued performance monitoring and occupant education are required to ensure annual energy use goals will continue to be met.

This presentation shows how the Research Support Facility is a showcase for sustainable, high-performance design, how it incorporates the best in energy efficiency, environmental performance, and advanced controls using a “whole building” integrated design process, and serves as a model for cost-competitive, high-performance commercial buildings for the nation’s design construction, operation, and financing communities.
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.
Presentation by National Renewable Energy Laboratory researchers Shanti Pless and Jennifer Scheib and Phil Macey from AIA on how to use the energy-goal-based process to achieve 90% savings in a parking structure.
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 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.
