1) If one is building a new building how does one measure in KWH the improved efficiency based on the design?
Answers to these questions provided by ICF:
Hi Doug, To estimate the energy efficiency of a new building you have to compare it to a fictional baseline. That baseline is an almost equivalent building, that would look the same and with the same usage, only its enveloppe performance and HVAC equipment would be different. We would pull those baseline performances out of local or international energy codes, ASHRAE 90.1 being the most used.

NACFE (https://nacfe.org/emerging-technology/electric-trucks-2/) is working to educate the North American trucking industry on numerous ways to slash diesel fuel use or eliminate it completely with electrification and hydrogen fuel cell trucks. Our 10 session Electric Truck Bootcamp is free to all fleets and utilities and leads into a 13 battery electric truck demonstration with 13 different...
Matt Great topic. Energy Efficiency is a great way to save and be smarter about power use. A simple example is the LED light. It is 10 times more efficient than an old incandescent bulb. The old bulbs make 90% heat and should be called a Heat Bulb and not a Light bulb. An LED will last longer and provide better light. The LED also lasts longer by a 100% or more longer life.
