Low Cost and No-cost Efficiency Upgrades for Your Building

  1. 1. Sally Sawyer, LEED AP www.wilmotinc.com Low-cost and No-cost Efficiency Upgrades for Your Building
  2. 2. “People don’t live by efficiency alone” – Stephen Kellert
  3. 3. Water • Aerators • Rainwater collection & gravity distribution • Condensate recovery • Low-flow fixtures • LID
  4. 4. Faucet aerators
  5. 5. Rainwater collection
  6. 6. Condensate reuse
  7. 7. Low flow fixtures Urinal 1 gpf vs. 0.5 gpf Showerhead 2.5 gpm vs. 1.5 gpm Toilet 1.6 gpf vs. 1.28 gpf
  8. 8. Low Impact Development (LID) • Reduce or eliminate stormwater user fee
  9. 9. Materials • Recycling • Recycled content • Green cleaning & IAQ
  10. 10. Recycling • What goes out? • Waste = lost profit
  11. 11. Recycled content: Closing the loop
  12. 12. Green Cleaning & Preventative Maintenance
  13. 13. 1% Improvement in Productivity > Total Energy Bill 1% improvement = $3.18 > $2.25 Source: Original by Rocky Mountain Institute using data from Building Owners & Managers Association, Electrical Power Research Institute, Statistical Abstract of US, 1991. All data updated by Carnegie Mellon Univ. in 2005
  14. 14. Energy: Operations & Lighting • Automate building operations – Smart strips, lighting sensors, programmable thermostats • Lighting retrofit • Daylighting • Daytime cleaning
  15. 15. Energy Operations and Equipment
  16. 16. Manage your use: • Programmable thermostats • Lighting sensors • Smart strips/auto shutoff
  17. 17. Lighting
  18. 18. Daylighting Improves productivity Reduces energy use
  19. 19. Daytime cleaning Eliminate this:
  20. 20. Energy: Equipment • Commissioning • EnergyStar appliances and equipment • Seal ductwork • White roof
  21. 21. Commissioning/Retro- commissioning Building Diagnostics Savings Analysis Implementation On-going Commissioning
  22. 22. Why is the building using 50% of its energy on a Sat. night?
  23. 23. One Behavior Change = 8% Reduction in Building Energy Use
  24. 24. Energy Star Appliances
  25. 25. Seal ductwork
  26. 26. White roof & exterior surfaces
  27. 27. What about the big stuff? • Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) • Cost segregation studies • Utility incentives • Demand Response programs • Rate structure analysis
