This website provides guidance on metrics and benchmarks that can be used to identify potential efficiency opportunities in laboratories, data centers and cleanrooms. These "high-tech" buildings are very energy intensive have efficiency opportunities that are not typically found in other commercial buildings.
This document provides in-depth instructions and examples for creating useful information from the interval data gained from using the Energy Charting and Metrics (ECAM) tool developed by the California Energy Commission.
The scorecard provides a spreadsheet template for collecting and tracking building data related to energy performance modeling.
This guide discusses how to achieve greater energy efficiency through occupancy behavior analysis and energy auditing to create targeted and strategic behavior change.
This guide explains the benefits and process of building commissioning thereby providing owners and other stakeholders a tool to improve building efficiency and operation. It is intended to be a resource, as well as a call to action, for building owners and facility managers who want to verify their buildings are not only operating as originally intended, but also as efficiently as possible. Commissioning of new construction and major renovations is the primary focus, although commissioning of existing buildings is also briefly discussed as well.
This guide provides an overview of the different energy audit options available and information on how to select an energy auditor.
This guide describes the benefits offered by energy service companies (ESCOs) and the things to consider when selecting and contracting with your provider. The appendix document is also available and contains solicitation and contracting samples.
These appendices contain solicitation and contract samples for working with energy service contractors (ESCOs) and go with the previously published, "A Guide to Performance Contracting with ESCOs".
This handbook targets two primary areas for creating energy-efficient buildings: (1) How to interpret energy data to improve efficiency and performance; (2) How to use computation and programming to combine the use of spreadsheet or programmable analysis tools with data from on-site meter and sensor acquisition systems. The primary audience for this handbook is commercial building owners, energy and facility managers, financial managers, and operators with little to no experience in data analysis and performance monitoring. The secondary audience is software developers and energy service providers in the commercial building industry, as well as more experienced owners and managers who wish to improve how they visualize, analyze, and manage their building’s energy use.
