1 1 Creating Credible, Actionable Energy Audits Jim Kelsey, PE kw Engineering

2 What We ll Cover 2 Elements of ASHRAE Audit Levels 1, 2 and 3 Summary of audit levels On-site techniques Actionable Audits Cool Tools/ Resources

3 Energy Audits are like photography 3 Everybody thinks they can do it Tools are cheap and available Producing a product is easy But results may vary Lack of Standard Methods Lack of Consistent Reports Need to maintain: Safety / IAQ Comfort Reliability

4 1 st Edition emphasized: Levels of Effort I, II, III Forms Audit forms Site use Became de facto standard 4

5 De facto standard Best Practice Methods Site visit methods Measurement methods Economic evaluation How to get a good bid Resources Audit forms EEM ideas Simulation checklists 5

6 6

7 7 ASHRAE Audit Procedures What are the ASHRAE audit levels?

8 8What they re not: versions of the same thing

9 What they re not: continuously adjustable scale 9

10 Preliminary Energy Use Analysis Calculate kbtu/sf Compare to similar Level 1: Walk-through Rough Costs and Savings for EEMs Identify Capital Projects Level 2: Energy Survey & Analysis End-use Breakdown Detailed Analysis Cost & Savings for EEMs O&M Changes Level 3: Detailed Survey & Analysis Refined analysis Additional Measurements Hourly Simulation 10

11 Detail Accuracy Rigor Confidence Risk Cost of Service Cost of Saved Energy 11

12 12 Before going on site

13 Preliminary Energy Analysis 13 bpd.lbl.gov

14 14

15 15

16 16 Benchmarking for Labs

17 17 Take sample over your campus, or multiple campuses Compare buildings with similar occupancy, end uses. E.g. labs vs. labs, data centers vs. data centers, classrooms vs. classrooms, dorms vs. dorms. or against your own buildings

18 18 Spy cams!

19 19 Level 1- Walk-through Process Conduct Preliminary Energy Analysis (PEA) Conduct walk-through survey Meet with owner to review operations Space function analysis Identify low-cost/no-cost recommendations Identify capital improvements

20 20 Level 1- Walk-through Report Estimate savings from utility rate change Summarize utility data Determine load shape irregularities Compare EUI to that of similar sites E.g. EnergyStar PM or Energy IQ Estimate savings if EUI met target Total energy costs by fuel type O&M deficiencies, safety deficiencies Low-cost, no-cost savings Rough costs for capital projects

21 Savings to meet target 21 Level 1 emphasis Is there potential here? If so, roughly how much and where?

22 22 Utility Data Summary

23 23 Level 2 Energy Survey and Analysis

24 Level 2 Energy Survey and Analysis 24 Process Detailed site visit Review M&E design, condition and O&M practices Measure key parameters List all potential recommendations Analyze capital measures (savings & costs including interaction) Meet with owner/operators to review recommendations

25 Level 2 Energy Survey and Analysis 25 Report Estimate low/cost / no-cost savings Perform detailed end-use breakdown Estimate capital project costs and savings Complete building description and equipment inventory General description of considered measures Recommended M&V method Financial analysis of recommended EEMs

26 Capture Interactive Effects 26 E.g. reduced lighting loads result in smaller capacity HVAC Provide integrated bundles of recommendations when appropriate Analyze up from loads to heat rejection

27 Interactive Effects Cascade Up and Out 27 System Heat Rejection Final Heat Rejection Distribution Plant Water Distribution Air Distribution Space Load Examples Cooling tower, evaporative condenser, air-cooled condensers Condenser water loop, refrigeration condensing Chillers, boilers, refrigeration compressors Air handlers, RTUs Plug loads, lighting, people, From loads to distribution, to heat rejection

28 28 End Use Allocation / Energy Balance

29 Combined Fuels (by kbtu) AKA End Use Disaggregation 29 Detailed End Use Allocation

30 Separate fuels 30 More valuable, eh?

47 One of these things is not like the other 47

48 Initial Measures List 48 Review on site with customer Discuss each recommendation Basis

49 EEM Summary Table 49 NRG Geeks Inc.

50 Measure Recommendations 50 Be explicit and clear Organize lighting like lighting vendors do Organize HVAC like a scope Make it easy Remember this is a sales document Motivate to action Bundle projects to avoid cream-skimming

51 Measure Recommendations 51 Observations Recommendation Costs Assumptions Specific Equipment Changes Specific Control setpoints or algorithms Other info: Cut sheets, vendor contact, pricing info Sensitivity analysis for key inputs

52 Recommendation 52 We recommend replacing these fixtures with bi-level models such as the OccuSmart Monitor series. Bi-level fixtures use an occupancy sensor to detect occupants and go to a low-power mode after detecting no occupancy for a certain time. They will ensure that minimum light levels are provided at all times in the stairwells for safety, while providing the same light levels as currently when the stairwells are occupied. We estimate that this measure can save about 4,000 kwh per year by reducing the full-power operating hours of the stairwell fixtures by about 45%. We estimated the cost of this measure at about $20,000, based on an installed cost of $300 per fixture.

53 Consider Human Factors 53 Don t believe everything you hear Don t ask leading questions Involve staff with solutions Leave site staff with the knowledge to follow through Follow up with show me questions

54 Build a Balanced Team 54 Committed management Engaged financial staff who understand risks and rewards Trained building engineers Trusted contractors and vendors Utility account representatives Engaged and informed building occupants Trained and experienced energy auditor

55 Level 3 Required Elements 55 Virtually never requested directly by clients We get to this scope through requests for implementation assistance Individual measure focused

56 Level 3 Additional Scope & Value 56 Level 2 and then some Modeling or extensive measurement recommended Report Detailed description of recommended measures (specs, cut sheets, Detailed EEM cost estimates LCCA

57 57 Level 3 Requirements

58 Level Process Conduct Preliminary Energy Analysis (PEA) Conduct walk-through survey Identify low-cost/no-cost recommendations Identify capital improvements Review M&E design, condition and O&M practices Measure key parameters Analyze capital measures (savings & costs including interaction) Meet with owner/operators to review recommendations Conduct additional testing/monitoring Perform detailed system modeling Provided schematic layouts for recommendations Level Report Estimate savings from utility rate change Compare EUI to that of similar sites Summarize utility data Estimate savings if EUI met target Estimate low/cost / no-cost savings Perform detailed end-use breakdown Estimate capital project costs and savings Complete building description and equipment inventory General description of considered measures Recommended M&V method Financial analysis of recommended EEMs Detailed description of recommended measures Detailed EEM cost estimates 58 Level Summary
