Commercial HVAC rooftop units presentation from the 2010 CEE Winter Program Meeting given by Mark Cherniack, NBI Senior Program Manager.
The Classroom and Office Building (COB) examined in this case study is one of five buildings in the initial phase of development at UC Merced. This case study examines the actual post-occupancy performance of COB in relation to design elements and objectives. The measurements cover July 2007 through June 2008.
Science & Engineering (S&E) Building I is one of five buildings in the initial phase of development at UC Merced. This case study examines the actual post-occupancy energy performance of S&E in relation to design elements and objectives.
National Lighting Power Density Comparisons. This table shows NBI's Core Performance LPD figures alongside all comparable codes.
Fenestration Proposal and Reason Statement EC165. The commercial fenestration requirement, sponsored jointly by New Buildings Institute (NBI) and the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
Opaque Proposal and Reason Statement EC147. A comprehensive change for commercial energy code requirements, sponsored jointly by New Buildings Institute (NBI), the American Institue of Architects and the US Department of Energy (DOE).
A synopsis of the comprehensive and integrated revisions to the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) submitted by NBI, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
Can an old brick barn, converted into office space, really be among America’s most energy efficient buildings? It’s starting to look that way. A look at the challenges and benefits of a late-nineteenth century brick barn turned office space.
The year-long study, "Energy Performance of LEED for New Construction Buildings," suggests significant opportunities for program improvement, even while it is clear that LEED is having a positive impact on building energy performance. As this information has been made publicly available, several common questions have been asked about how LEED data was summarized in the report. While many of the answers to these questions are addressed in the report itself, we have developed a factsheet of Frequently Asked Questions to facilitate access to the answers.
The Core Energy Code represents the proposed 2012 IECC language for additional energy efficiency in commercial buildings. It is based on proposals submitted jointly or severally by New Buildings Institute, American Institute of Architects and the US Department of Energy to the 2012 International Code Council. It may be subject to revision during the IECC Code Development Cycle.
