dc.descriptionTechnical Report
dc.descriptionAbstract: This report describes the demonstration of a rapid, whole-building energy performance assessment method to efficiently identify buildings for energy-conservation retrofits. The patent-pending process, called First View, can generate an energy signature or model that represents a sample building’s energy performance. The only input data required are building type, square footage, monthly average temperatures, and gas and electric consumption for 12 consecutive months. Seven office buildings were as-sessed at Picatinny Arsenal, NJ. The analysis was performed manually using Microsoft Excel spreadsheet functions to produce summary output, reference charts, graphs, and tables. The First View model performed well across the sample building population. The energy signatures and associated output aligned well with field observations and local knowledge of the buildings under study. This effort also included a more general effort to the study of total life-cycle cost analysis of facility condition in relation to energy performance. In this connection the authors provide a design for a comprehensive information dashboard report to provide information that could be used to expediently identify facilities that are good candidates for in-depth energy analysis.
