"The focus of [the energy use] section of the State of Montana report is to emphasize immediate and near term energy conservation and reduction opportunities that can be carried out on a building-by-building basis; furthermore, to recommend the use of actual energy consumption data to track the results of energy reduction efforts and identify buildings or campuses in need of a more detailed energy audit – aimed to identify causes of excessive energy use that are not readily discovered or observable to the naked eye."
This report uses EnergyPlus simulations of each building in the 2003 Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) to document methods of modeling the entire U.S. commercial buildings sector (EIA 2006).
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.
