Energy Modeling 2009 Presentation

  1. 1. “ LEEDership for Sustainability” “ GREEN BUILDING” -Not the conversation of a decade ago <ul><ul><li>Accreditations: CHEERS, HERS Rater, Sustainable Building Advisor, CGBP, LEED AP </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Members: USGBC Northern California Chapter, Emerging Green Builder, Architecture 2030, BOMA, RESNET </li></ul></ul>-Matt Macko
  2. 2. Energy Modeling <ul><ul><li>Lee Eng Lock – “Almost anything that uses energy needs to be looked at with a new pair of eyes” </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. People Don’t Want Energy <ul><li>Hot Showers Cold Beers </li></ul>They Want:
  4. 5. AB 1103 <ul><li>Assembly Bill </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Requires electric and gas utilities to maintain records of building energy consumption </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Moving the industry toward better building efficiency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>California Wide – Existing Stock </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Portfolio Manager </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ENERGY STAR Score </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Same as LEED EBOM </li></ul></ul><ul><li>2010 you will see the effect </li></ul>
  5. 6. Who? <ul><li>Who is modeling for? </li></ul><ul><li>Its for EVERYONE on EVERY project whether LEED or not </li></ul><ul><li>Numerous studies have shown there are no day lighting or energy benefits with window-to-wall ratios over 60 percent </li></ul><ul><li>25 and 40 percent is optimum </li></ul><ul><li>Yet we continue to build glass boxes </li></ul>
  6. 7. When? - Early <ul><li>When just 1% of a project’s up front costs are spent…up to 70% of its life-cycle cost may already be committed.” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Joseph Romm, energy expert </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A couple thousand up front can pay for itself in the first couple months </li></ul><ul><li>Small 4 story Soma building – built 2001 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Monthly spending $20,000 on energy </li></ul></ul>
  7. 8. What? <ul><li>DOE2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>DOE2 1e-Visual DOE </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>eQuest </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EnergyPro </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HAP-Carrier </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Trace </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Energy 10 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Weather maker </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Energy Plus </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>TRYNSYS </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Green Building Studio </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Its not just Title 24 calcs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Studies show the most effective models come from outside 3 rd parties – and rarely from engineering firms </li></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 9. Graphical User Interfaces <ul><li>Makes energy modeling easy to use </li></ul><ul><li>We used to text edit for DOE Simulations </li></ul><ul><li>DOE – working to develop better GUIs </li></ul>
  9. 10. Energy Modeling Benefits in Each Phase?

  14. 25. Strategies <ul><li>Energy Efficient Measures </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Often an Existing Building term </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Need to be thought of in the same sentence </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> (Commercial Kitchen) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>3000 - only 800 have received a basic energy audit </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Pacific Energy Center </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Upcoming classes </li></ul></ul></ul>
