[Bldg-sim] LEED Process Energy Reduction

We have documented this on two projects - in both cases we had to
document what the industry standard for the process would be and then
how ours was more efficient. One was related to conveyor energy usage
and the process integrator documented the expected savings based on
numerous other installations they had done over the past few years. The
second one was the process energy associated with refrigeration -
through team member networking we surveyed approximately 200 owners of
buildings of a similar scope and use to document the baseline
refrigeration system that a building of that type would use. Then we
documented how our system was different and more efficient.
In both cases this was approached with the alternative calculation
methodology of ASHRAE 90.1 and that section of the LEED template. Hope

Subject: [Bldg-sim] LEED Process Energy Reduction
I am currently working on several process intensive buildings. The
mechanical systems and corresponding control strategies that are being
designed are ideal for achieving 30%-40% savings in a standard office
building but I'm afraid that the common denominator, the high process
loads, will significantly reduce my projects savings. Has anyone
successfully submitted for a reduction in process load. If so, what/how
did you document the reduction?
Thanks for your time.
