To maximize the benefits of converting to light-emitting diode (LED) technology from the traditional high-intensity discharge (HID) technology used in most parking lot lighting, CBEA members developed a performance specificationPDF that should be applied to a specific site, rather than a specific product.

To maximize the benefits of converting traditional high-intensity discharge (HID) technology to high-efficiency alternative technologies, including LED, induction, and fluorescence, a CBEA Project Team developed parking structure lighting performance specifications that should be applied to specific sites rather than specific products.
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small Warehouses and Self-Storage Buildings (AEDG-WHSE; the Guide) is intended to provide a simple approach for contractors and designers who create warehouses. Application of the recommendations in the Guide should result in warehouses with 30% energy savings when compared to those same warehouses designed to the minimum requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings.
A Commercial Building Energy Alliances (CBEA) working group, in coordination with the U.S. Department of Energy and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, is developing a specification for more energy-efficient unitary air conditioner RTUs. Group members are working on a needs-and-wants assessment, which will guide the creation of a performance specification document.
A CBEA Project Team working to support the market introduction of high-efficiency troffers developed a specification that allowed for high-efficiency LED and fluorescent technologies, and addressed the 2'x2' category of troffer products. Version 3.0 of the Specification was released, expanding the specification to address 1'x4' and 2'x4' product configurations. Potential savings from applying the specification range from 15-45% on a one-for-one basis and up to 75% with the use of controls.
The FEDS system allows data input to range from minimal to extremely detailed. With minimal input, FEDS can be used as a top-down, first-pass energy systems analysis and energy resource acquisition decision software model for buildings and facilities. Providing FEDS with more detailed input allows the user to generate optimized building retrofits for an entire installation and provides detailed output for each retrofit in each building set.
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.
