Hi All,
Just an FYI on a recent publication (Sept. 09) available for free
"Technical Support Document: 50% Energy Savings Design Technology
Packages for Medium Office Buildings"
I just glanced through it (138 page document - 1.2MB file) but I see a
lot of good stuff on efficient design and energy modeling.
Good explanations on modeling baseline and proposed models using ASHRAE
Standard 90.1, with specifics on radiant heating and cooling,
DOAS, VAV and many of the ECMs that would typically be considered for an
energy-efficient design.
There are lots of tips for EnergyPlus users, since that's what was used
for the modeling, but much of the document applies to anyone modeling
ASHRAE 90.1 baselines and subsequent conservation measures.
