Overview

This practical desk reference for energy engineers, now fully updated and expanded with new material throughout, is designed to serve as a comprehensive resource for performing energy audits in commercial facilities. Although there are no "typical" commercial buildings, the book begins with the premise that when commercial facilities are subdivided into categories based on business type, many useful patterns can be identified which become generally applicable to the performance of an effective energy audit. Hence, discussion of procedures and guidelines is provided for a wide range of business and building types, such as schools and colleges, restaurants and fast food, hospitals and medical facilities, grocery stores, laboratories, lodging, apartment buildings, office buildings, retail, public safety, data centers, churches and religious facilities, libraries, laundries, warehouses and more. All focal areas of the building energy audit and assessment are covered, including building envelope, lighting, HVAC, controls, heat recovery, thermal storage, electrical systems and utilities. The second edition provides new material on such topics as early replacement decision making, impact of lease arrangements on energy project interest, coordination of upstream/downstream set points, semiconductor fab multi-stage HVAC air tempering, commissioning, overlapping heating and cooling and much more.
