This two-book set includes both Energy Efficiency Guides for Existing Commercial Buildings (EEG-EB). Although a part of the highly successful Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) series, the EEG-EB series concentrates solely on existing commercial buildings. The first in the series provided a business case for energy efficiency and was targeted to building owners and managers, and the second is aimed at providing technical guidance in undertaking existing building renovation programs.

Technical Implementation

The Energy Efficiency Guide for Existing Commercial Buildings: Technical Implementation provides specific and practical energy efficiency measures that will help achieve the goal of building sustainability while reducing energy costs. Intended for building engineers and managers with a working knowledge of building systems, this guide demonstrates ways to measure a building's energy efficiency, track that efficiency, develop an energy efficiency plan, and provides guidance on implementing the developed plan. The goal is to provide clear and easily understood technical guidance for energy upgrades, retrofits, and renovations to achieve at least a 30% improvement in energy performance relative to a range of benchmark energy utilization indexes (EUIs).

This Technical Implementation Guide is the newest Energy Efficiency Guide for Existing Commercial Buildings (EEG-EB). Although a part of the highly successful Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) series, the EEG-EB series concentrates solely on existing commercial buildings. The first in the series provided a business case for energy efficiency and was targeted to building owners and managers.

The Business Case for Building Owners and Managers

Dennis R. Landsberg, Mychele R. Lord, Steven Carlson and Fredric Goldner

Energy Efficiency Guide for Existing Commercial Buildings: The Business Case for Building Owners and Managers is part of the Advanced Energy Design Guide series and is designed to address existing buildings rather than new construction.

Buildings that are energy-efficient, green, and sustainable can have significant long-term value. This represents a tremendous opportunity for building owners and real-estate developers, with great potential for a positive return on investment.

This Guide is the first installment in what is expected to be a three-part series and is aimed at providing the business case for energy efficiency to building owners and managers; it provides the rationale for making economic decisions related to improving and sustaining energy efficiency in existing buildings. The goal of this publication is to enable building owners to evaluate current operations and conduct the economic analysis necessary to make wise decisions regarding improvements. The Guide demonstrates how to benchmark performance against comparable buildings, illustrates how energy use and cost can be reduced by at least 30%, and describes how to do all of this while minimizing capital investment and maximizing return on investment. In addition, the Guide identifies additional measures that can achieve even greater energy efficiencies and cost savings in economical ways.
