The following pages help Facility Managers, and anyone concerned with energy use, minimize the energy loads used by equipment plugged into outlets. The Suite pulls together research-based solutions that address this key challenge in the operation of an energy-efficient building through five items.
This guide is designed to help your restaurant save energy and water and boost your bottom line while helping to protect the environment.
To increase support for compliance with building energy codes, the U.S. Department of Energy's Building Energy Codes Program (BECP) has published the Building Energy Codes Resource Guide: Commercial Buildings for Architects. The Guide provides key information on energy codes tailored for architects and provides guidance on how they can support the adoption of new or updated energy codes and the resources needed to ensure compliance with what is adopted.
This advanced specification provides energy guidelines for a highly efficient low voltage distribution transformer.
This draft specification provides a description of performance characteristics for high-efficiency commercial electric storage water heaters.
This advanced specification provides energy guidelines for a highly efficient ultra-low temperature laboratory freezer.
This draft specification provides a description of performance characteristics for high-efficiency fume hood models. Fume hoods are used to exhaust hazardous gases from laboratory activities, and are typically found in commercial buildings that contain laboratories, such as hospitals, universities, and research facilities. The final specification will be developed with Commercial Building Energy Alliance (CBEA) member and manufacturer input and include minimum requirements that will be of interest to a critical number of CBEA members.
This draft specification provides a description of required performance characteristics for high-efficiency gas unit heaters. Commercial buildings with large open spaces use gas unit heaters as a localized heating source, often in addition to central heating systems.
