Energy Efficiency Guide for Existing Commercial Buildings is a two (02) book set that contains:
Energy Efficiency Guide for Existing Commercial Buildings: The Business Case for Building Owners and Managers provides the business case for energy efficiency to building owners and managers and provides the rational for making economic decisions related to improving and sustaining energy efficiency in existing buildings. The goal of this publication is to enable building owners to evaluate current operations and conduct the economic analysis necessary to make wise decisions regarding improvements. The Guide demonstrates how to benchmark performance against comparable buildings, illustrates how energy use and cost can be reduced by at least 30%, and describes how to do all of this while minimizing capital investment and maximizing return on investment. In addition, the Guide identifies additional measures that can achieve even greater energy efficiencies and cost savings in economical ways.
Energy Efficiency Guide for Existing Commercial Buildings: Technical Implementation provides specific and practical energy efficiency measures that will help achieve the goal of building sustainability while reducing energy costs. Intended for building engineers and managers with a working knowledge of building systems, this guide demonstrates ways to measure a building's energy efficiency, track that efficiency, develop an energy efficiency plan, and provides guidance on implementing the developed plan. The goal is to provide clear and easily understood technical guidance for energy upgrades, retrofits, and renovations to achieve at least a 30% improvement in energy performance relative to a range of benchmark energy utilization indexes (EUIs).
