Energy efficiency and fuel switching reports for commercial-scale buildings

Peninsula Advanced Energy Community

New reports from the Peninsula Advanced Energy Community (PAEC) show the economics of eight energy efficiency measures for five building types: office, municipal (fire station), school, multifamily residential, and retail. Using a consistent approach to calculate payback, each report analyzes these same eight technologies:

  1. LED lighting conversion
  2. Building Management Systems (BMS) and advanced controls
  3. Reduction in phantom loads
  4. Higher-efficiency windows
  5. Improved insulation quality
  6. Replacement of obsolete air conditioning with higher-efficiency systems
  7. Heat pumps as replacements for natural gas space heating
  8. Alternative water heating systems
