A presentation by Shanti Pless, Senior Energy Efficiency Research Engineer, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, given at the greengov symposium September 25, 2012.
This fact sheet summarizes recommendations for designing new office buildings that result in 50% less energy use than conventional designs meeting minimum code requirements. The recommendations are drawn from the Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small to Medium Office Buildings, an ASHRAE publication that provides comprehensive recommendations for designing low-energy-use office buildings with gross floor areas up to 100,000 ft2.
Designed as a stand-alone document, this fact sheet provides key principles and a set of prescriptive design recommendations appropriate for smaller
office buildings with insufficient budgets to fully implement best practices for integrated design and optimized performance. The recommendations have undergone a thorough analysis and review process through ASHRAE, and have been deemed an easily replicable combination of measures to achieve 50% savings in the greatest number of office buildings.
The text below includes sample language and potential resources that may be used to complete appraisals of a green or high performance building. It is not intended to serve as a complete or comprehensive list, and should be utilized as a guide aid in the development of the appraisal report. Highlighted sections represent those that require specific attention from appraisers, and should be customized as necessary to reflect the actual resources and information used during the appraisal process.
This guidance walks building owners through five steps to obtaining an appraisal that evaluates the energy efficiency benefits
of high performance buildings. This may help obtain favorable terms with a lending institution.
STEP 1: Gather the information a lender or appraiser will need to analyze your property.
STEP 2: Provide contact information for development or retrofit professionals involved with the property.
STEP 3: Ask questions at the time of your loan application.
STEP 4: Review the completed appraisal closely – and objectively.
STEP 5: Ask follow-up questions regarding the appraisal report.
