A Case For Deep Savings: 11 Case studies of Deep Energy Retrofits
Case Study / August 23, 2011 / Building Innovation, Deep Energy Retrofits
For NEEA’s BetterBricks program, New Buildings Institute investigated* 11 examples of energy retrofits in existing commercial buildings that, on average, use 50% less energy than the national average – most with an energy use intensity (EUI) of less than 40 kBtus per square foot.
The Project Profiles for each building include motivations, technologies and practices, energy performance, financial information, overall project results and quotes from owner and design teams. The Meta Report contains the aggregated results of the case studies plus findings from an initial group of 50 buildings with 30% or more energy savings.
