Written by a team of top experts, this comprehensive handbook is designed to serve as a "stand-alone" desk reference for those responsible for managing energy costs. For the third edition, nearly every chapter has been revised or totally rewritten to bring in the latest information on each area addressed. The chapter on boilers has been significantly revised to simplify both procedures and calculations. The chapter on lighting has been completely rewritten to include coverage of the latest on lighting and control technologies for lighting systems. The electricity chapter has been expanded to provide a much more thorough examination of induction motor management. Other comprehensive revisions bring coverage fully up to date on HVAC system optimization, building envelope, natural gas purchasing, codes and standards, energy economic analysis, and energy management program organization. New chapters have been added on energy security and reliability, electric and gas utility rate schedules, and indoor air quality.
