Reach your goals of measurable energy savings in any commercial building

Energy Audits and Improvements for Commercial Buildings offers complete coverage of energy assessments, as well as the resulting improvements that can reduce energy use and carbon emissions. Written by a practicing engineer who has prepared, supervised, and reviewed over 1,000 commercial energy audits, this book provides a real-world reference for sustainability in all types of existing facilities. An essential reference for the energy professional's office, the book also integrates a field guide that is a must-have for work in buildings. Photographs and drawings throughout illustrate and clarify important concepts and processes, and the book walks you through the latest tools used for assessment and analytics. This comprehensive reference is unique in delivering an intuitive understanding of how to perform all aspects of a thorough energy audit, successfully implement solutions, and recognize new opportunities for energy improvements specific to each building. The book is intended for energy auditors, energy managers, and those in related fields—professionals and students alike.

A comprehensive approach to energy performance management can reduce both facility costs and environmental impact. Buildings at any scale strive for efficiency and safety, and many cities and states have regulated energy use and assessment. This book provides complete guidance throughout the energy audit process, and clear direction on proceeding to install the improvements that will increase the facility's sustainability.

  • Understand the measurement and assessment of energy performance
  • Learn how the building's envelope and energy systems contribute to energy use
  • Recommend appropriate improvements for specific energy loads and equipment
  • Ensure the successful installation of energy improvements and learn tools to make energy savings persist over time

Energy audits examine all building components, including the envelope and energy systems, to ensure maximum energy savings. The result is intended to meet goals of energy savings, reduced carbon emissions, and sustainability. Energy efficiency is in the best interest of both stakeholders and the environment. Energy Audits and Improvements for Commercial Buildings delivers thorough, exclusive, invaluable guidance on ensuring maximum energy savings in any facility.
