This book is designed to serve as a comprehensive resource for performing energy audits in commercial facilities. The fully revised new edition has been updated and expanded throughout, including new chapters on water efficiency, and impact of the human and behavioral aspects of energy management, as well as discussion of regression, use of energy consumption signatures as an operational control, and interval data information. 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, hospitals and medical facilities, grocery stores, laboratories, lodging, apartment buildings, office buildings, retail, public safety, data centers, religious facilities, 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.
