This presentation decribes how building an energy-efficient data center can improve a business's bottom line.
This presentation discusses the importance of selecting a project delivery method that balances performance, best value, and cost savings.
Presentation slides from Integrating Energy Modeling in the Design Process presentation given at the NASA Net-Zero Energy workshop June 5-6, 2012.
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 describes how the designers, owners, and occupants can take advantage of opportunities to reduce plug loads in the Research Support Facility.
This presentation Session I from the RSF Workshop discusses the unique energy efficiency features and performance of the Research Support Facility.
This presentation Session II from the RSF Workshop discusses the performance-based design-build process, which was used to procure and construct the Research Support Facility.
This presentation from Session III from the RSF Workshop discusses the cost considerations associated with designing, building, and operating the Research Support Facility.
The presentation from Session IV from the RSF Workshop discusses the impacts of occupant behavior on energy efficiency in the Research Support Facility. It also describes occupants' issues and concerns.
