Residential Energy Audits  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A series of events coupled with the last five years experience performing Residential Conservation Service (RCS) audits have resulted in renewed efforts by utilities to evaluate the role of residential energy audits. There are utilities where the RCS program is considered very successful; however, the majority of utilities have found that the costs far exceed the benefits. Typically, the response rates are low (less than 1% per year for Texas utilities), the audits primarily reach upper income persons, and consumers only implement the low-cost recommendations. The Texas PUC is on record as being opposed to the RCS as well as the Commercial and Apartment Conservation Service (CACS) and now requires Energy Efficiency Plans with detailed cost and savings information on utility end user programs.

Energy Audits in Process Units  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Emphasis is placed on practical considerations in the effective organization and execution of a successful in-house energy audit of a process unit, based upon experience gained in several such audits of Gulf Coast petrochemical units. Staffing requirements, membership qualifications, probable time span for the audit, cost-benefit ratios, and necessary line management commitment are discussed. The scope and importance of pre-audit preparation and related responsibilities are explained. Activities of the Audit Team are likely to fall naturally into six general phases, each of which is reviewed in detail.

A Guide to Energy Audits  

SciTech Connect

Energy audits are a powerful tool for uncovering operational and equipment improvements that will save energy, reduce energy costs, and lead to higher performance. Energy audits can be done as a stand-alone effort or as part of a larger analysis across a group of facilities, or across an owner's portfolio. The purpose of an energy audit (sometimes called an 'energy assessment' or 'energy study') is to determine where, when, why and how energy is used in a facility, and to identify opportunities to improve efficiency. Energy auditing services are offered by energy services companies (ESCOs), energy consultants and engineering firms. The energy auditor leads the audit process but works closely with building owners, staff and other key participants throughout to ensure accuracy of data collection and appropriateness of energy efficiency recommendation. The audit typically begins with a review of historical and current utility data and benchmarking of your building's energy use against similar buildings. This sets the stage for an onsite inspection of the physical building. The main outcome of an energy audit is a list of recommended energy efficiency measures (EEMs), their associated energy savings potential, and an assessment of whether EEM installation costs are a good financial investment.

Energy Metering Audit Procedure  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper describes the recent audit of the utility distribution meters in a petrochemical plant. These meters measure the steam, condensate, natural gas, water, nitrogen and air flows to the different process units within the plant. This audit started as an attempt to resolve discrepancies between the 650 PSIG steam distribution and supply meters. Theoretically the sum of the 650 PSIG steam flows to the units should have matched the total of the steam supplied to the plant. However, in this plant the monthly totals of the distribution were consistently 15% - 25% lower than the supply meter totals. The plant is billed on the basis of the supply meters. Therefore, these discrepancies represented a significant utility cost, approximately $150,000 a year, that was arbitrarily allocated among the different units. The plant commissioned an audit of the 650 PSIG distribution and supply meters. The purpose of this audit was to: 1. Certify that there were no users not monitored by the existing distribution meters. 2. Verify the operability and accuracy of the meters. Hopefully, the results of the audit would allow the plant to account for at least 90% of the steam supplied. This accounting was necessary for equitable distribution of utility costs and accurate determination of unit production costs. The project was eventually expanded to include all utility streams. The audit of the following utilities was funded and implemented due to their relatively high unit costs: 650 PSIG steam, 200 PSIG steam, natural gas, and nitrogen. The audit of the other utilities is planned but a schedule has not been established.

Conducting Your Own Energy Audit  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Why should you or anyone be interested in conducting a time intensive energy audit. What equipment is needed? When should you get started? Who should do it? The answer to Why is that energy costs are cutting into a companys profit every minute of every day. Inefficient energy usage is like having money lost or stolen. Energy costs may account for up to 25% of a companys expenses and hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. To answer What will be discussed later in this paper. The answer to When is that the energy audit needs to be done now! Every day and month of delay is throwing money away that could be put back into the business or distributed as profit. To answer Who should do the study depends on the complexity and size of the utility bill. Large utility bills, $100,000 or more, or a large facility, 100,000 square feet or more, may indicate the skills of a professional energy engineer are required to analyze the facilitys energy consumption and recommend the proper energy conservation measures needed. Smaller facilities usually can be energy analyzed by company personnel who have some energy training. This paper is written to assist those personnel in conducting their own energy audits. Even larger facilities may decide to do an in-house energy audit before they hire outside assistance in order to get an idea of the amount and cost of energy being used and possible savings. This can be compared to the cost of the outside energy audit.

Writing User-Friendly Energy Audit Reports  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Energy audits don't save money and energy for companies unless the recommendations are implemented. Audit reports should be designed to encourage implementation, but often they impede it instead. In this paper, the authors discuss their experience with writing industrial energy audit reports and suggest some ways to make the reports more user-friendly. The goal in writing an audit report should not be the report itself; rather, it should be to achieve implementation of the report recommendations and thus achieve increased energy efficiency and energy cost savings for the customer.

Energy Audits on Prince Edward Island  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

High energy costs and uncertain supplies force industrial operators to seek out energy waste to keep costs down. The Enersave for Industry and Commerce program assists Prince Edward Island industries through an energy audit and grant program. A typical audit shows how one processor doubled his output with no increase in energy use.

Volatile Energy Costs and the Floundering Deregulation of Electricity: A Volatile Energy Costs and the Floundering Deregulation of Electricity: A Fresh Look at Integrating Supply-Side and Demand-Side Resources Speaker(s): Bill Kelly Robert Redlinger Date: January 19, 2001 - 12:00pm Location: 90-3148 Seminar Host/Point of Contact: Julie Osborn The restructuring of the California electricity industry has not proceeded as intended. A generation capacity shortage, combined with spiraling natural gas costs and a flawed electricity market structure, have led to unprecedented wholesale electricity prices, power outages, and a political and financial crisis for the State. This crisis will not be solved through increasing electricity supply alone. Energy industry observers agree that 1.) energy efficiency, 2.) distributed on-site generation, and 3.) price

Industrial Energy Audit Basics by an Energy Auditor  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The purpose of an energy audit is the first step in energy cost control. There are two types of energy audits Traditional and Investment grades. The process of an energy audit consists of collecting and then processing data, specifying changes, and finally producing an action plan. With the high cost of energy today, energy audits are a worthwhile consideration for any business. Know what is available in the market and who is qualified. You are loosing money every hour equipment is operating inefficiently.

An Olefin Unit's Energy Audit and Implementation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper will discuss an Energy Audit conducted in 1976 on Union Carbide's Texas City No. 3 Olefins Ethylene Unit. Staffing, planning, and conduct of an Audit are reviewed. Project endorsement by the multifunctional Energy Audit Team is used to prioritize capital programs. The paper will describe several projects having possible application in other Olefin plants. Preparation and use of an Energy Curve reviewed. An Energy Index graph projects improvements to be achieved by implementation of a four-year $44 million capital program which resulted from the Audit. Reorganization of the Olefin unit technical staff to complete the energy conservation program is covered. Several techniques being used to insure operator and maintenance commitment to energy conservation are reviewed. The Texas City No. 3 Olefins Unit is an LPG based ethylene plant rated in excess of one billion pounds per year. Since start-up in 1968, energy costs have escalated by a factor of ten. The unit's current energy bill exceeds $45 million per year. Between 1972 and 1977 the Olefin plant conversion energy index increased by 40%. Concerned with rising fuel price and decreasing energy efficiency, management decided to conduct an Energy Audit on the Olefins Unit. This paper discusses the audit and implementation of the resulting conservation program. The paper is divided into four sections: I. The Energy Audit II. Energy Curve III. Energy Index and Energy Projects IV. Operating Department Organization

HVAC system analysis: energy audit review  

SciTech Connect

Although most energy audits do not investigate HVAC systems in as much detail as would most design consultants, audit data can be most informative. For certain types of buildings, air-conditioning energy usage can be estimated by its absence from energy bills during winter months, and heating energy usage can be estimated by its absence from energy bills during the summer months. Cooling and heating energy usage can be even more accurately broken down when a fossil fuel is used for heating while electrical energy is used for cooling. It is easy to establish fairly accurate energy consumption estimates for lighting, fan motors, and pumps; this can be done by verifying their loads and multiplying them by known operating hours. The numerous notes contained in some energy audits may also provide ideas for retrofitting energy-consuming areas.

Performance Auditing of Energy Management Programs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

With the oil crisis of the 1970's, energy management programs became important to both the private and public sectors. But with the decrease of oil prices in the mid 1980's, interest in energy conservation programs has declined. Nevertheless, energy conservation remains an effective way to reduce operating costs without cutting services. This paper describes a review process that can be used by managers and engineers to improve an organization's overall energy management program. This energy management audit, as it is called, is much more than an energy audit; it is an assessment of the organization's entire system of controlling energy costs. The energy management audit discussed in this paper divides an energy management program into five major areas. Each of these areas is subdivided into basic elements which can then be analyzed and evaluated to see if meets the needs of the organization. The results of the audit provide specific recommendations for improving the organization's energy conservation program cost effectiveness and efficiency.

Sault Tribe Building Efficiency Energy Audits  

SciTech Connect

The Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians is working to reduce energy consumption and expense in Tribally-owned governmental buildings. The Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians will conduct energy audits of nine Tribally-owned governmental buildings in three counties in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to provide a basis for evaluating and selecting the technical and economic viability of energy efficiency improvement options. The Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians will follow established Tribal procurement policies and procedures to secure the services of a qualified provider to conduct energy audits of nine designated buildings. The contracted provider will be required to provide a progress schedule to the Tribe prior to commencing the project and submit an updated schedule with their monthly billings. Findings and analysis reports will be required for buildings as completed, and a complete Energy Audit Summary Report will be required to be submitted with the provider?s final billing. Conducting energy audits of the nine governmental buildings will disclose building inefficiencies to prioritize and address, resulting in reduced energy consumption and expense. These savings will allow Tribal resources to be reallocated to direct services, which will benefit Tribal members and families.

Phase II Audit Report - Energy & Water Audits of LLNL Facilities  

SciTech Connect

This report describes Phase II of a project conducted for the Mechanical Utilities Division (UTel), Energy Management Program at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) by Architectural Energy Corporation (AEC). The overall project covers energy efficiency and water conservation auditing services for 215 modular and prefabricated buildings at LLNL. The primary goal of this project is to demonstrate compliance with DOE Order 430.2A, Contractor Requirements Document section 2.d (2) Document, to demonstrate annual progress of at least 10 percent toward completing energy and water audits of all facilities. Although this project covers numerous buildings, they are all similar in design and use. The approach employed for completing audits for these facilities involves a ''model-similar building'' approach. In the model-similar building approach, similarities between groups of buildings are established and quantified. A model (or test case) building is selected and analyzed for each model-similar group using a detailed DOE-2 simulation. The results are extended to the group of similar buildings based on careful application of quantified similarities, or ''extension measures''. This approach leverages the relatively minor effort required to evaluate one building in some detail to a much larger population of similar buildings. The facility wide energy savings potential was calculated for a select set of measures that have reasonable payback based on the detailed building analysis and are otherwise desirable to the LLNL facilities staff. The selected measures are: (1) HVAC Tune-up. This is considered to be a ''core measure'', based on the energy savings opportunity and the impact on thermal comfort. All HVAC units in the study are assumed to be tuned up under this measure. See the Appendix for a detailed calculation by building and HVAC unit. (2) HVAC system scheduling. This is also considered to be a ''core measure'', based on the energy savings opportunity and ability to control units centrally during a shelter-in-place event. All HVAC units in the study are assumed to be controlled under this measure. See the Appendix for a detailed calculation by building and HVAC unit. (3) Cool roof. Savings estimates for the measure were applied to all roofs scheduled for replacement in the LLNL deficiency list. See the Appendix for a detailed calculation by building. (4) Window shading. Savings estimates for the measure were applied to all non-north facing windows. Although the simple payback is not a good for this measure, it should be considered for the associated benefits on thermal comfort and to alleviate some of the zoning and thermostat placement issues. (5) HVAC upgrade at normal replacement. Savings estimates for the measure were applied to all HVAC units scheduled for replacement on the LLNL deficiency list. A total of 642 units (about 55% of the total) are on the replacement list, so this represents a major opportunity. See the Appendix for a detailed calculation by building and HVAC unit. (6) Indirect/direct evaporative cooling. Savings estimates for the measure were applied to all HVAC units scheduled for replacement on the LLNL deficiency list. See the Appendix for a detailed calculation by building and HVAC unit. Due to the magnitude of the potential energy savings, this measure should be considered as the new generation IDEC systems become commercially available. (7) Super T-8's. Savings estimates for this measure were applied to all buildings in the study, assuming that the new generation lamps will be rotated in during normal lamp replacement operations. See the Appendix for a detailed calculation by building. (8) Occupancy sensors. Savings estimates for this measure were applied to buildings surveyed as candidates for occupancy sensors during the Level 1 audits. See the Appendix for a detailed calculation by building. (9) Remaining Lighting. Savings for this measure were calculated for each eligible fixture identified during the Lev

The Value of an Energy Audit Program  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The emerging role of the Energy Manager, from a part time technician to a management level technical administrator can only be accomplished through the understanding of long-range energy control of energy facility energy use. In this paper, the concept of the program approach is developed relative to the established energy audit. In exploring the difference between the two concepts, the need for detailed understanding of the facility (equipment and personnel) is brought about and highlighted as equal in importance to the justification of capital projects as a means of reducing energy.

Overcoming barriers to residential conservation: do energy audits help  

SciTech Connect

A study on the effects of energy audits on the pace and choice of household investment in energy-saving improvements in the home is reported. An evaluation based on the household's assessment of the usefulness of the audit which was provided for their home was performed. The number and types of recent conservation actions among audited and unaudited samples of households are compared. The audit's effect on household knowledge about the economically attractive options for their home and on the choice of recent improvements is assessed. Possible reasons are suggested for the weak effect of audits in stimulating activity and reorienting investment choices. (LEW)

How well do home energy audits serve the homeowner?  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

How well do home energy audits serve the homeowner? How well do home energy audits serve the homeowner? Title How well do home energy audits serve the homeowner? Publication Type Conference Proceedings LBNL Report Number LBNL-5712E Year of Publication 2012 Authors Ingle, Aaron, Mithra M. Moezzi, Loren Lutzenhiser, and Richard C. Diamond Conference Name 2012 Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings Date Published 05/2012 Conference Location Pacific Grove, CA, USA Abstract Home energy audits administered by utilities and government typically provide homeowners with lists of technical upgrade recommendations intended to increase the technical energy efficiency of the house. Audits proceed with assessment of physical characteristics, subsequently processed with a computational model and transformed into a report, sometimes customized by the auditor. While the design of an energy audit reflects program and policy points of view - balancing program cost with expected program savings, educating people about the value of energy efficiency, etc. - it is crucial to consider the criteria for a good home energy audit and recommendations from homeowners' points of view. How well do home energy audits currently meet these criteria? How well do asset-based assessments match what homeowners seem to want? We consider these questions based on a study of 286 homeowners who participated in a Seattle City Light home energy audit program. Findings suggest that there is substantial opportunity to reorient audit programs to better fit the realities of why homeowners undertake energy audits and retrofits. In the Seattle City Light program, participating homeowners found certain elements of the audit they received - interaction with professional auditors, blower door testing, and customized, specific upgrade recommendations - to be more compelling than the standardized and quantitative elements. Rather than being engaged with increasing energy efficiency, as invited by an asset perspective and asset-based efficiency scores, homeowners wanted to build better understanding of their home's energy use and to learn how to solve specific problems, especially reflecting their household's actual energy use practices.

Based on its analysis of the President's 2001 Nuclear Posture Review, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) estimated that it would need approximately 90 tons of beryllium metal to meet mission requirements over the next 30 years. About 50 tons of the material is currently available for purchase from the Defense Department's National Defense Stockpile. Because the only domestic producer of beryllium metal from ore ceased production in 2000, NNSA had been uncertain how it would overcome the perceived shortfall. Audit Report: IG-0583

Updating Texas Energy Cost Containment Audit Reports  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In 1984 and 1986, 35.3 million square feet of state owned buildings were audited to identify cost saving retrofit projects. Originally intended for direct legislative funding or bond sales, funding became available in 1989 through oil overcharge moneys in a program known as LoanSTAR. Due to the time between the audits and availability of funds, update of the reports for current energy and equipment cost, and for accomplishment of projects was necessary. Audits in 1984 and 1986 identified total savings of $21.3 million per year and investment costs of $42.3 million per year. The 1989 update revealed retrofit projects remaining worth $10.9 million per year in savings and costing $30.5 million. The reduction in savings and costs is primarily due to changes in prices and accomplishment of projects. The methodology for updating prices and surveying facility energy contacts to determine accomplishment will be discussed. Both the accomplishment of maintenance and operation (M&O) type projects and capital-intensive retrofit/measures will be discussed. For example, the surveys revealed that 69% of 291 M&O's have already been accomplished, along with 24% of the 750 retrofit/measures.

The purpose of this research is to compare measured, stored, and predicted energy data from the Jerry Yang & Akiko Yamazaki Environment and Energy (Y2E2) building to derive conclusions about its energy performance. The research team, consisting of five graduate and undergraduate students, measured energy performance data from a sample of 107 rooms, which included kitchens, conference rooms, offices, classrooms, labs, and restrooms. The data collected provide detailed information on occupancy, thermal comfort, and energy consumption during a two and a half week period. In addition, the research team extracted stored data from both the utility companys records and the Y2E2s SQL database (accessible through SEE-IT software). This research explains the sources for the differences observed in energy performance compared to the predicted model. The major finding of this study is that Y2E2s energy performance meets the expectations of its efficient design. Overall, plug loads consume a typical proportion of energy, lighting performs beyond ASHRAE standards, and the hybrid Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system sufficiently adheres to the thermal comfort needs of the occupants. Although Y2E2 appears to perform adequately, this study

Industrial Energy Audit Basics by an Energy Auditor  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The purpose of an energy audit is the first step in energy cost control. There are two types of energy audits - Traditional and Investment grades. The process of an energy audit consists of collecting and then processing data, specifying changes, and finally producing an action plan. Before visiting the site utility bills need to be obtained. Building information and weather data should be gathered and any information on major equipment should be gathered. When the auditor goes to the site, safety if of prime importance. Before starting a walk-thru, a meeting with plant managers and equipment operators should take place, then the collecting of data. After returning to the office the data is analyzed and energy conservation opportunities are developed and a report written. A Traditional energy audit is technical. It is a snapshot that assumes all conditions stay the same. It is about 75 percent accurate. It consists of all the steps above but its weaknesses is that it is focused on equipment, ignoring the human element, and is generic in its recommendations. No commitment is obtained from management and no measurement or verification is established. The Investment Grade audit is the Traditional audit plus Risk Assessment. It reduces uncertainty, increases consistency, and produces a 95 to 115 percent accuracy. It looks at ancillary equipment, provides a maintenance program, and looks at future plans. The Investment Grade audit considers the PEOPLE factor which includes management commitment, operator training, budget, and maintenance. It also considers Financial and Legal factors as well as Air Quality issues. Generally, utility bills should exceed $500,000 to justify an Investment Grade audit. Time is also an issue in that money is going out in fees and expenses and not coming in as savings. There must also be a project manager assigned to coordinate communications. The Investment Grade audit makes continuous commissioning and performance contracting possible. With the high cost of energy today, energy audits are a worthwhile consideration for any business. Know what is available in the market and who is qualified. You are loosing money every hour equipment is operating inefficiently.

Energy Audits of Local Government Buildings (Louisiana DNR)  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper describes innovations instituted in an ongoing energy auditing program for local government buildings in Louisiana. In order to provide as many audits as possible with the funds available, a two-pronged effort was initiated to reduce the cost of conducting audits and generating audit reports while maintaining high quality results: (1) senior mechanical engineering students were employed and trained as auditors and (2) a microcomputer-based software system was developed to automate much of the analysis, economic decision making, and composition required for the audit reports. In addition to providing a valuable educational tool for the students and a streamlined cost effective means of generating audit reports for local governments, this project can potentially improve the energy efficiency by as much as 1,768 MMBTU/yr per building. These numbers are extrapolated from the results of this program performed in 1986 before the development and use of the microcomputer-based software system.

The Department suspended all production operations at the site in 1989 and, in 1991, it formally ended the site's production mission. The first environmental restoration contract at the FEMP was awarded to the Fernald Environmental Restoration Management Corporation, now known as Fluor Fernald, Inc. (Fluor), in 1992. From December of that year through November 2000, Fluor managed the site's cleanup activities, and in November 2000, was awarded the FEMP's closure contract.

The material is currently stored in a deteriorating facility at ORNL that is over 60 years old. Because of its highly radioactive and dangerous properties, the U-233 is stored in a shielded storage location and must be handled in hot cells to protect workers from exposure. Since there were no programmatic uses for the material, the Department initiated efforts to dispose of it in 2001. In 2003, however, the conferees to the Fiscal Year 2003 Omnibus Appropriations

February 28, 2013 February 28, 2013 The Greater Philadelphia region's historic buildings and homes are among the most significant in American history, but they predate modern energy-efficient designs by centuries. In fact, some buildings have been found to leak air at a rate 10 times that of typical buildings their size. But it takes a lot to make older buildings more energy efficient and comfortable. Expensive, up-front out-of-pocket costs for energy efficiency improvements have been a barrier to reducing Greater Philadelphia buildings' energy use in the past.

LoanSTAR Energy Conservation Audits: January 1989 - August 1990  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Fourteen audit reports, covering seventy buildings and Texas' Governor's mansion, have been accepted as a part of the Texas LoanSTAR Program. Task 1 (the first of five) is responsible for audit reviews and assignments. One hundred forty-five energy cost reduction measures (ECRMs) and maintenance and operation recommendations (M&Os) have been identified which can result in significant amounts of electrical energy, demand and natural gas savings. Costs savings are $1,882,000/yr and the investment cost is $5,566,000 for an overall simple payback of 3.0 years. The ECRMs and M&Os have been categorized as well as the types of buildings involved. The cost for auditing the 5.2 million square feet was $0.054 per square foot. Problems associated with audit reports are also discussed.

Energy Design Reviews: The End of the Energy Audit?  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

It is much more cost effective to design an industrial plant upfront for optimum energy efficiency rather than retrofit an existing plant, yet typically design engineers and project managers continue to focus on capital costs, not lifecycle costs, often ignoring substantial energy savings potential over the 20-50 year plant life. An average of over 30 percent in annual energy spending relative to the business as usual design baseline was identified in four recent energy design reviews (EDR) for large industrial companies. Typically, energy audits identify energy cost savings of 5-10 percent of energy spending, thus demonstrating the much larger savings potential of energy design reviews. This paper will define an EDR, list the benefits, compare an EDR with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, describe the methodology, present case study results and lessons learned from four EDRs, and conclude with suggestions on how to incorporate energy design reviews in your organization.

On Decision Making Following an Industrial Energy Audit  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A survey of 104 manufacturers has been carried out. Each plant had received an energy audit by an EADC at least 24 months prior to the study. The survey attempted to determine why certain recommendations made in the audit report were not implemented. Several interesting results were obtained. Of most importance is the observation that many of the companies eventually implemented recommendations which were initially rejected. Also, the acceptable simple payback for energy conserving measures varies inversely with yearly energy costs. Finally, a clear correlation between the level of training of plant personnel and the sophistication of solutions to energy problems is clearly demonstrated.

Audit Costs for the 1986 Texas Energy Cost Containment Program  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Direct program costs for detailed audits of 13.5 million square feet of institutional building space in the 1986 Texas Energy Cost Containment Program were $0.047/SF. The building area was 63 percent simple (offices, schools, and universities) and 37 percent complex (medical buildings and power plants). Allowing for the influence of one large facility which received less-extensive treatment due to previous work, thorough audits were obtained for an average cost of $0.050/SF. Large medical buildings (greater than about 170,000 square feet) were audited for $0.050/SF or less, and program costs for survey audits of 17.2 million square feet were $0.0028/SF. The effect on audit costs of complexity of recommended modifications, amount of savings determined, amount of implementation costs, building size, and building complexity are discussed. Primary effects on audit costs are size and complexity of buildings. Program guidelines limited consideration of projects with greater than a four year payback.

A preliminary review of energy savings from EADC plant audits  

SciTech Connect

This paper reviews the long-term energy savings attributed to industrial plant energy audits conducted under the US Department of Energy`s (DOE`s) Energy Analysis and Diagnostic Center (EADC) Program. By the end of FY91, this program is expected to have performed over 3600 plant energy audits since it began in late 1976. During FY91, 500 of the 3600 are expected to be completed. Currently, 18 universities participate in the program. DOE`s expansion plan, as specified in the National Energy Strategy, calls for adding three universities to the program during FY92. This review, requested by the OIT as part of their program planning effort, is preliminary and limited in scope. The primary purpose of this paper is to independently assess the accuracy of past energy savings reporting, specifically: whether a 2-year assessment horizon for identifying implemented ECOs captures all the ECOs implemented under the program whether the number of implemented ECOs and thus, the energy savings associated with program audits, significantly decrease in years 3 through 7 after the audit.

Laboratory tests are conducted on weapons' non-nuclear systems to detect defects due to handling, aging, manufacturing, or design. Flight tests involve dropping or launching a weapon, with its nuclear components removed, to assess performance and reliability. Component tests involve the destructive analysis of the five primary weapon components: pits, secondaries, detonators, cable assemblies, and the gas transfer valves systems to identify defects or failures.

However, the W76 Life Extension Program (LEP) has experienced significant delays in startup and in achieving production goals. NNSA may be unable to complete the W76 LEP within established scope, cost and schedule parameters, unless it adopts a more effective approach to reducing unit costs. This concern is exacerbated by the fact that the Program is faced with a relatively flat budget over the next few years, even though its annual scope of work is projected to increase significantly.

The implications of deregulation for biomass and renewable energy in California  

SciTech Connect

California has been leading the nation down the path of electric utility deregulation, beginning with the April 1994, California Public Utilities Commission`s (CPUC) Blue Book restructuring proposal. The road for renewable energy producers has been particularly rocky, leaving the future of renewable energy production very much in doubt. The original CPUC proposal provided for competition among generating sources on the basis of price alone, without regard for environmental considerations. The California legislature took up electric utility deregulation legislation during 1996, culminating in AB 1890, California`s landmark restructuring legislation, which was passed unanimously by the Senate and Assembly, and signed into law by the governor on September 28, 1996. AB 1890 assigned to the California Energy Commission (CEC) the task of determining how to allocate the renewables transition funds between existing and new renewable generating sources, and among the various renewable energy technologies that are available for deployment in California. The California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA) was assigned the task of reporting to the legislature about the specific benefits provided by biomass energy production in California, and about policies that could shift some of the cost of biomass energy production away from the electric ratepayer, on to beneficiaries of the environmental benefits of biomass energy production. This study describes the development of the CEC and Cal/EPA reports to the California legislature, and provides an analysis of the major issues that were encountered during the course of their development. The study concludes with a consideration of the future prospects for biomass and renewable energy production in the state.

9 9 Audit Report: IG-0599 May 22, 2003 Dual Axis Radiographic Hydrodynamic Test Facility The Dual Axis Radiographic Hydrodynamic Test (DARHT) facility is an experimental facility of the Stockpile Stewardship Program. The facility will provide high-speed, high-resolution flash radiographs to diagnose the results of hydrodynamic tests and dynamic experiments. Construction of DARHT began in 1988. Since that time, the project has undergone several baseline changes impacting different technical aspects of the project. Original plans called for the development of two single-pulse axes with similar capabilities at a cost of $30 million. In 1998, the scope was changed to expand the capability of the second axis while at the same time increasing the cost to $270 million. The following photograph shows DARHT's

9 9 Audit Report: IG-0589 March 11, 2003 Transfer of Excess Personal Property From the Nevada Test Site to the Community Reuse Organization Certain excess personal property transferred by Nevada to the Community Reuse Organization (CRO) was not in the best interest of the taxpayers. For instance, in February 2002, Nevada transferred a drill rig to the CRO, which ultimately sold it to an equipment broker located in Texas. This broker was not involved in local community transition activities. The equipment broker originally sent a request to purchase the equipment to Nevada in June 2001. Before acting on the broker's request, Nevada offered the equipment to other Department sites and other Federal agencies, but did not receive any requests for the equipment. Rather than offer the drill rig

8 8 Audit Report: IG-0698 September 9, 2005 Sludge Removal Operations at the Hanford Site's K Basins The sludge removal phase of the Spent Nuclear Fuels (SNF) Project and Cost has experienced schedule delays and cost increases. For example, the original Tri-Party Agreement (TPA) milestone called for sludge removal to begin by December 2002; however, Fluor was unable to begin operations until July 2004 - 18 months later than planned. In April 2003, Fluor initiated the final step towards beginning sludge removal operations. This step, called the Operational Readiness Review (ORR), required an assessment to verify that an adequate state of readiness had been achieved to begin startup of sludge removal operations. Due to numerous deficiencies, the ORR was halted shortly after it started. Deficiencies included instances where

The RFF Home Energy Audit and Retrofit Survey...............................................................  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Commercial and residential buildings are responsible for 42 percent of all U.S. energy consumption and 41 percent of U.S. CO2 emissions. Engineering studies identify several investments in new enegy-efficiency equipment or building retrofits that would more than pay for themselves in terms of lower future energy costs, but homeowners and businesses generally do not have good information about how to take advantage of these opportunities. Energy auditors make up a growing industry of professionals who evaluate building energy use and provide this information to building owners. This paper reports the results of a survey of nearly 500 home energy auditors and contractors that Resources for the Future conducted in summer 2011. The survey asked about the characteristics of these businesses and the services they provide, the degree to which homeowners follow up on their recommendations, and the respondents opinions on barriers to home energy retrofits and the role for government. Findings from the survey suggest that the audit industry only partially is filling the information gap. Not enough homeowners know about or understand audits, and the follow-through on recommendations once they do have audits is incomplete. But the survey findings suggest that low energy prices and the high cost of retrofits may be more responsible for these outcomes than failures of information.

National Energy Audit Tool for Multifamily Buildings Development Plan  

SciTech Connect

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) enables low-income families to reduce their energy costs by providing funds to make their homes more energy efficient. In addition, the program funds Weatherization Training and Technical Assistance (T and TA) activities to support a range of program operations. These activities include measuring and documenting performance, monitoring programs, promoting advanced techniques and collaborations to further improve program effectiveness, and training, including developing tools and information resources. The T and TA plan outlines the tasks, activities, and milestones to support the weatherization network with the program implementation ramp up efforts. Weatherization of multifamily buildings has been recognized as an effective way to ramp up weatherization efforts. To support this effort, the 2009 National Weatherization T and TA plan includes the task of expanding the functionality of the Weatherization Assistant, a DOE-sponsored family of energy audit computer programs, to perform audits for large and small multifamily buildings This report describes the planning effort for a new multifamily energy audit tool for DOE's WAP. The functionality of the Weatherization Assistant is being expanded to also perform energy audits of small multifamily and large multifamily buildings. The process covers an assessment of needs that includes input from national experts during two national Web conferences. The assessment of needs is then translated into capability and performance descriptions for the proposed new multifamily energy audit, with some description of what might or should be provided in the new tool. The assessment of needs is combined with our best judgment to lay out a strategy for development of the multifamily tool that proceeds in stages, with features of an initial tool (version 1) and a more capable version 2 handled with currently available resources. Additional development in the future is expected to be needed if more capabilities are to be added. A rough schedule for development of the version 1 tool is presented. The components and capabilities described in this plan will serve as the starting point for development of the proposed new multifamily energy audit tool for WAP.

The implications of deregulation for biomass and renewable energy in California. Revision  

SciTech Connect

The California legislature took up electric utility deregulation legislation during 1996, culminating in AB 1890, California`s landmark restructuring legislation. The legislation created a transition funding program for renewables. No permanent program for the support of renewable energy production extending beyond the end of the transition period (2002) is included in AB 1890. AB 1890 assigned to the California Energy Commission (CEC) the task of determining how to allocate the renewables transition funds between existing and new renewable generating sources, and among the various renewable energy technologies that are available for deployment in California. The California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA) was assigned the task of reporting to the legislature about the specific benefits provided by biomass energy production in California, and about policies that could shift some of the cost of biomass energy production away from the electric ratepayer, on to beneficiaries of the environmental benefits of biomass energy production. This study describes the development of the CEC and Cal/EPA reports to the California legislature, and provides an analysis of the major issues that were encountered during the course of their development. The study concludes with a consideration of the future prospects for biomass and renewable energy production in the state.

Validation of the Manufactured Home Energy Audit (MHEA)  

SciTech Connect

The Manufactured Home Energy Audit (MHEA) is an energy audit tool designed specifically to identify recommended weatherization measures for mobile homes as part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Weatherization Assistance Program. A field validation of MHEA was performed using billing/delivery data collected on 86 mobile homes heated primarily by electricity, natural gas, or propane to assess the audit's accuracy and the validity of its recommendations. The validation found that MHEA overpredicts the annual space-heating energy savings of weatherization measures to be installed in mobile homes, which leads to low realization rates, primarily because of its large overprediction of annual pre-weatherization space-heating energy consumption. However, MHEA's annual space-heating energy savings estimates and realization rates can be improved considerably using MHEA's built-in billing adjustment feature. In order to improve the accuracy of MHEA's annual space-heating energy savings estimates and realization rate, the cause of MHEA's overprediction of annual pre-weatherization space-heating energy consumption needs to be further investigated and corrected. Although MHEA's billing adjustment feature improved MHEA's annual space-heating energy savings estimates, alternative methods of making the correction that may provide improved performance should be investigated. In the interim period before permanent improvements to MHEA can be made, the following recommendations should be followed: (a) do not enter into MHEA insulation thicknesses of 1 in. or less and especially zero (0 in.) unless such low levels have been verified through visual inspection of several parts of the envelope area in question; (b) use MHEA's billing adjustment feature to develop a list of recommended measures based on adjusted energy savings if possible, especially in mobile homes that have several major energy deficiencies; and (c) do not use MHEA's "evaluate duct sealing" option at this time (although certainly seal all duct leaks and use diagnostics as appropriate to find leakage sites and quantify improvements).

Our Favorite Energy Management Opportunities: A Review of Over 150 Energy Audits of Industrial Firms  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

For five years the Oklahoma Industrial Energy Management Program at Oklahoma State University has been serving industry by offering energy audits and energy management conferences. To date, more than 50 conferences and 170 energy audits have been conducted. A data base has been constructed containing the results of the audits. On the average, the audits have identified savings of 15% of present energy costs and implementation rates are about 60%. (A recent job change is expanding these activities to Montana State University while those at Oklahoma State University will continue.) This paper examines the data base to pick out the "most popular EMO's." (Energy Management Opportunities) Popularity is determined by frequency of recommendation, savings, and implementation rates. Some breakdown by Standard Industrial Code will also be given. Emphasis is on detecting which ideas have potential for wide spread application. Therefore, attendees should see several ideas that are applicable to their plants.

Energy Audit Practices in China: National and Local Experiences and Issues  

SciTech Connect

China has set an ambitious goal of reducing its energy use per unit of GDP by 20% between 2006 and 2010. Since the industrial sector consumes about two-thirds of China's primary energy, many of the country's efforts are focused on improving the energy efficiency of this sector. Industrial energy audits have become an important part of China's efforts to improve its energy intensity. In China, industrial energy audits have been employed to help enterprises indentify energy-efficiency improvement opportunities for achieving the energy-saving targets. These audits also serve as a mean to collect critical energy-consuming information necessary for governments at different levels to supervise enterprises energy use and evaluate their energy performance. To better understand how energy audits are carried out in China as well as their impacts on achieving China's energy-saving target, researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) conducted an in-depth study that combines a review of China's national policies and guidelines on energy auditing and a series of discussions with a variety of Chinese institutions involved in energy audits. This report consists of four parts. First, it provides a historical overview of energy auditing in China over the past decades, describing how and why energy audits have been conducted during various periods. Next, the report reviews current energy auditing practices at both the national and regional levels. It then discusses some of the key issues related to energy audits conducted in China, which underscore the need for improvement. The report concludes with policy recommendations for China that draw upon international best practices and aim to remove barriers to maximizing the potential of energy audits.
