Hayward's Green Building Ordinance  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Please accept on behalf of the City of Hayward this request for California Energy Commission (CEe) review and approval of Hayward's Green Building Ordinance.and related energy cost effectiveness study, which will mandate exceeding the 2008 Energy Code standards. As we have discussed previously, Hayward adopted a Green Building Ordinance last fall (see attached Tab 1). The Ordinance requires that new construction and non-residential development exceeding 1,000 square feet comply with the City's green building ordinance standards (described below), if a permit application is submitted for such developments after August 1 of this year, or after the CEC and Building Standards Commission (BSe) approve such standards. Hayward's ordinance indicates that new residential development shall be GreenPaint Rated, meaning achieving energy efficiency at least 15 % above State standards. Build It Green staff, who oversee the GreenPaint Rated program, have indicated that their new standards/guidelines will require projects Rated to exceed 2008 State energy efficiency standards by at least 15 % in order to be GreenPoint Rated. Their current standards require exceeding 2005 State energy efficiency standards by at least 15%. For non-residential development, certain standards related to energy efficiency need to be met in one of three ways: the lighting load for fixtures shall be reduced by at least 15 % below 2008 Title 24

INL Green Building Strategy  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Green buildings, also known as sustainable buildings, resource efficient buildings, and high performance buildings, are structures that minimize the impact on the environment by using less energy and water, reducing solid waste and pollutants, and limiting the depletion of natural resources. As Idaho National Laboratory (INL) becomes the nations premier nuclear energy research laboratory, the physical infrastructure will be established to help accomplish the mission. This infrastructure, particularly the buildings, should incorporate green design features in order to be environmentally responsible and reflect an image of progressiveness and innovation to the public and prospective employees. With this in mind, the recommendations described in this strategy are intended to form the INL foundation for green building standards. The recommendations in this strategy are broken down into three levels: Baseline Minimum, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)Certification, and Innovative. Baseline Minimum features should be included in all new occupied buildings no matter what the purpose or size. These features do not require significant research, design, or capital costs and yet they can reduce Operation and Maintenance (O&M) costs and produce more environmentally friendly buildings. LEED Certification features are more aggressive than the Baseline Minimums in that they require documentation, studies, and/or additional funding. Combined with the Baseline Minimums, many of the features in this level will need to be implemented to achieve the goal of LEED certification. LEED Silver certification should be the minimum goal for all new buildings (including office buildings, laboratories, cafeterias, and visitor centers) greater than 25,000 square feet or a total cost of $10 million. Innovative features can also contribute to LEED certification, but are less mainstream than those listed in the previous two levels. These features are identified as areas where INL can demonstrate leadership but they could require significant upfront cost, additional studies, and/or development. Appendix A includes a checklist summary of the INL Green Building Strategy that can be used as a tool during the design process when considering which green building features to include. It provides a quick reference for determining which strategies have lower or no increased capital cost, yield lower O&M costs, increase employee productivity, and contribute to LEED certification.

Green Building- Efficient Life Cycle  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Energy saving does not just apply to traffic, production or agriculture. Buildings are also contributing to the climate change. The focus here is on the energy they use and on their CO2 emissions. Each year, Siemens invests more than two billion euros in the appropriate research and development. For customers, this means that Siemens is already providing them with energy efficient solutions that save resources and reduce emissions. Siemens Real Estate (SRE) has taken on the task of ensuring that Siemens AG will become 20 percent more energy efficient by 2011, and it has turned an efficiency program for existing real estate, which has been in existence since 2005, into an integrated green building initiative. This initiative comprises the components Sustainable Building Design, Life Cycle Cost Analysis, Green Building Certification and Natural Resources Management. These components are deliberately arranged around the life cycle of the real estate concerned. This allows a different emphasis to be placed on the different questions in each project phase and each phase of a buildings life and for them to be answered in a targeted manner. Sustainable Building Design comes into effect during the tasking and preliminary planning phase of a building project; and, by providing a specially developed sustainability manual, it helps with the definition of target values and the drawing up of efficiency strategies for the planning of the building. The manual epitomizes, and sets out clearly, the attitude of SRE to all building-specific sustainability matters. In addition, it is used in the offering of rewards for project competitions. As a result, through a selection of different energy-efficiency measures that have been roughly conceived beforehand, the primary energy consumption can already be restricted in the project definition phase. Life Cycle Cost Analysis comes into effect when the blueprint for buildings is being drawn up. Up to now, when components and systems were being chosen, the main focus was usually on the investment costs involved. By using a cost tool developed specifically to meet the needs of the company, SRE will in future be able to estimate the component-specific utilization costs such as cleaning, maintenance, and the use of energy at an early planning stage. Green Building Certification is used in building projects during the planning and implementation phase, and it thus ensures the quality of the new real estate over the long term. Siemens is implementing the Green Building Program of the European Commission in new building projects and renovation work in EU countries. In all other countries that are not taking part in the EU Green Building Program, SRE uses certification in accordance with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). In the LEED certification, a transparent and easy-to-use catalog of criteria is employed to make an assessment of the use of energy and other aspects of sustainability, such as the selection of the plot of land, the efficient use of water, the quality of air within buildings, and the selection of materials. This ensures that a neutral and independent assessment is made of all new building and large-scale renovation projects. The action program Natural Resources Management rounds off the range of measures in the area of existing real estate. The aim of the program is to identify and highlight all latent efficiency potential in existing buildings. This includes, for instance, modernizing the control equipment used for the heating and ventilation systems. This entails replacing electrical power units with more efficient models, and retrofitting fans and pumps with frequency converters. Sixty buildings have now been inspected, and savings of almost eight million Euros have been achieved. The average payback period is less than two years. One example of this is an old Siemens building from the 1970s at the Munich-Perlach site. Through energy optimization, it has been possible to cu

Jackson Park Hospital Green Building Medical Center  

SciTech Connect

Jackson Park Hospital completed the construction of a new Medical Office Building on its campus this spring. The new building construction has adopted the City of Chicago's recent focus on protecting the environment, and conserving energy and resources, with the introduction of green building codes. Located in a poor, inner city neighborhood on the South side of Chicago, Jackson Park Hospital has chosen green building strategies to help make the area a better place to live and work. The new green building houses the hospital's Family Medicine Residency Program and Specialty Medical Offices. The residency program has been vital in attracting new, young physicians to this medically underserved area. The new outpatient center will also help to allure needed medical providers to the community. The facility also has areas designated to women's health and community education. The Community Education Conference Room will provide learning opportunities to area residents. Emphasis will be placed on conserving resources and protecting our environment, as well as providing information on healthcare access and preventive medicine. The new Medical Office Building was constructed with numerous energy saving features. The exterior cladding of the building is an innovative, locally-manufactured precast concrete panel system with integral insulation that achieves an R-value in excess of building code requirements. The roof is a 'green roof' covered by native plantings, lessening the impact solar heat gain on the building, and reducing air conditioning requirements. The windows are low-E, tinted, and insulated to reduce cooling requirements in summer and heating requirements in winter. The main entrance has an air lock to prevent unconditioned air from entering the building and impacting interior air temperatures. Since much of the traffic in and out of the office building comes from the adjacent Jackson Park Hospital, a pedestrian bridge connects the two buildings, further decreasing the amount of unconditioned air that enters the office building. The HVAC system has an Energy Efficiency Rating 29% greater than required. No CFC based refrigerants were used in the HVAC system, thus reducing the emission of compounds that contribute to ozone depletion and global warming. In addition, interior light fixtures employ the latest energy-efficient lamp and ballast technology. Interior lighting throughout the building is operated by sensors that will automatically turn off lights inside a room when the room is unoccupied. The electrical traction elevators use less energy than typical elevators, and they are made of 95% recycled material. Further, locally manufactured products were used throughout, minimizing the amount of energy required to construct this building. The primary objective was to construct a 30,000 square foot medical office building on the Jackson Park Hospital campus that would comply with newly adopted City of Chicago green building codes focusing on protecting the environment and conserving energy and resources. The energy saving systems demonstrate a state of the-art whole-building approach to energy efficient design and construction. The energy efficiency and green aspects of the building contribute to the community by emphasizing the environmental and economic benefits of conserving resources. The building highlights the integration of Chicago's new green building codes into a poor, inner city neighborhood project and it is designed to attract medical providers and physicians to a medically underserved area.

Recent development in green buildings  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Because of the environmental concerns about some materials used in buildings, particularly chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) fluids used as the blowing agent for insulation materials and as refrigerants used in the air conditioning systems have led to a search for environmentally safe alternatives. For insulation materials, new non-CFC blowing agents are still under development. However, the old insulation materials in the buildings will stay because they do not pose any further environmental damage. It is a different story for refrigerants used in air conditioning systems. This study reports that the change-over from CFC to non-CFC refrigerants in the existing and future air conditioning equipment could be a chance not only to take care of the environmental concerns, but to save energy as well. Alternative air conditioning technologies, such as the desiccant dehumidification and absorption systems, and the potential of some natural substances, such as carbon dioxide, as the future refrigerants are also discussed.

Dillons Kwik Shop Dillons Kwik Shop After a tornado destroyed 95% of Greensburg, Kansas, in May 2007, residents needed a convenience store for gas and groceries. Just a year after the storm, Kroger Company broke ground on a prototype for rural grocery stores. Completed in February 2009, the new Dillons Kwik Shop is a hybrid between a convenience store and a gas station. Kroger Company hopes this type of store will serve the grocer needs of several rural county areas. Additionally, this building includes a number of unique green building and energy efficiency features. ENERGY EFFICIENCY FEATURES * Well-insulated roof with an R-value of R-24 that prevents heat loss and maintains cooler temperatures in summer * A high albedo reflective roof coating reflects heat away from the building in

Building Green in Greensburg: Kiowa County Courthouse  

Energy.gov (U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)) Indexed Site

Courthouse Courthouse The Kiowa County Courthouse, originally built in 1914, was one of the only buildings not completely destroyed by the tornado. However, it was severely damaged by a vehicle that crashed through the roof, allowing rain to fall inside for 3 days. Luckily, most of the County's paperwork was salvaged thanks to quick action taken by the community the day after the tornado. Completed in July 2009, the building was renovated with sustainable and energy- saving technologies while staying true to the structure's original design. It is designed to meet the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED ® ) Gold designation and is projected to be 37% more energy efficient than an ASHRAE 90.1-2004 energy code minimum courthouse.

Austin's Green Building Program: A Tool for Sustainable Development  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In a new approach to home rating systems, Austin's Green Building Program was designed in 1991 as a marketing approach to encourage builders, architects, and designers to incorporate sustainable building practices, systems, and materials into residential construction. A secondary goal of the program was to encourage "green" business development in the Austin area. A rating system of accumulated points translates to a "sustainability rating" of one to four stars. Four resource areas relating to the home are considered: water, energy, building materials, and solid waste. Seventeen criteria were used to develop points for more than 130 building options listed under the four categories. The criteria for evaluating the options included consideration of the source, process (i.e. from raw material to finished product), use, postlife (recyclability, disposal), integration (with other systems), and difficulty in offering the option. The options are presented in the Green Building Guide, which includes an overview of the program, a discussion of sustainability and local and regional resources, the rating worksheets, and a comprehensive glossary of terns. The Green Building Guide is supplemented by a Sustainable Building Sourcebook which gives more detailed design and source information for each option listed in the Guide. The Green Building Guide is being revised in a simpler format, and the marketing package is being evaluated based upon our experience of the past two years of program operation. The Green Building Program supports participants through general marketing and technical seminars. Response to the Green Building Program has indicated pent-up demand from the market for more environmentally sensitive building practices. Reaction from the building industry has shown a desire for a mechanism to present building and development in a more positive light to an environmentally aware public. The broad acceptance of this strategy was highlighted at the United Nations Conference for Environment and Development (UNCED), called the "Earth Summit," when the Green Building Program was selected as one of twelve finalists worldwide for the United Nations Local Government Honours Programme. The most recent of several awards was the Award for Innovation presented by the Association of Demand Side Management Professionals in November, 1993. This paper will follow the implementation and operation of the Green Building Program, with discussions on the successes, challenges, and modifications of the program since its introduction to the public in early 1992.

GREEN ICT: How can ICT help to go Green Buildings?  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The worldwide growth in the use of Information and Communications Technology ICT products has had both positive and negative effects. Electronics enable us to make information exchange quicker and easier; reduce our need to physically move people, products, information, and allow us to cut traffic, but increase pollution and increase the negative ecological impact. Recently, an argumentative issue refers indirectly to the benefit of ICT to go green and decrease the negative ecological impact. In the near future, ICT will also play a critical role in supporting the necessary paradigm shifts within the green sector towards more sustainable generation. With this in mind, a discussion of how the proposed consumers can achieve green savings on top of the efficiency gains resulting from automated systems is represented.

Property Tax Incentive Property Tax Incentive Jump to: navigation, search Property tax incentives include exemptions, exclusions and credits. The majority of property tax incentives provide that the added value of a renewable energy system is excluded from the valuation of the property for taxation purposes. For example, if a heating system that uses renewable energy costs more to install than a conventional heating system, the additional cost of the renewable energy system is not included in the property assessment. In a few cases, property tax incentives apply to the additional cost of a green building. Because property taxes are collected locally, some states grant local taxing authorities the option of allowing a property tax incentive for renewable energy systems.

Sustainability in Real Estate- "Do Green Buildings make Investors Happy?"  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

If you dont join in, you have lost already! or Green Building is just a trend.- Quotes like these have dominated the real estate press over the past year. Who will prove right in the end? It will soon be decided when real estate assessors and chartered surveyors start accounting for energy efficiency, the health and comfort issues of occupants as well as other sustainability aspects. Occupants are already showing interest in the sustainability issues of their real estate. According to an opinion poll completed in June 2008 among tenants of Union Investment Real Estate AG, 68 percent of tenants would be willing to pay a premium for renewable energy sources enhancing the efficiency of energy consumption in their buildings. After all, service charges will be lower with new technology and after the implementation of a coherent sustainability strategy tenants will benefit from a higher quality work environment. An even higher percentage, 72 percent of tenants, state that the degree of sustainability of the building has an influence on future decisions to rent or not to rent in a given building. Tenant preferences not only make the sustainability of real estate economically relevant but also make it key to a real estate portfolio, which is able to survive the next cycle with lower vacancy rates and higher yields as it accounts for the needs of the occupants as well as for the high standards of multinational corporations. The latter often have to show their ethical behavior in annual reports. Members of the carbon disclosure project, for instance, need to declare their CO- footprint regularly throughout the fiscal year. In the end the financial performance of real estate is determined by the preferences of the occupants. As such it becomes obvious why sustainable real estate is in the investors best interest. High ethical standards and entrepreneurial responsibility prompted Union Investment Real Estate AG to get involved and participate in the activities of the German sustainable building council (DGNB). Its goal is to develop a system for certification comparable to established international standards like LEED or BREEAM. A wide variety of interest groups within the construction and real estate industry work together with the DGNB to measure and map specific criteria and the requirements of sustainability in the German market. Union Investment Real Estate AG is convinced that "Green Building" is an irreversible development, as it results in ecologically and socially reasonable investments and demonstrates the responsible attitude of the industry in times of ever increasing energy costs, which also makes it a plain economic necessity to act sustainably.

Green Building Performance Evaluation in the United States: Measured Results from LEED- New Construction Buildings  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Is the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program (LEED) delivering actual energy savings? This study addresses that question with a post-occupancy assessment of 121 LEED buildings across the United State. Input to the study consisted of energy bills and brief descriptions of actual building use from owners, plus modeled energy usage information from the U.S. Green Buildings Councils (USGBC) LEED submittal files. The actual building performance was viewed through several whole-building metrics: energy use intensity (EUI) relative to national averages, Energy Star ratings, and energy use levels relative to the initial energy modeling (covered in more detail in Frankel, 2008). Two overall results emerged. First, across each of these varied measurements, LEED building performance averaged 25 30% better than the benchmark. However, there is also wide variation within the individual results, even for similar building activities and climate zones, suggesting potential for significant further improvements. This paper presents general EUI patterns, Energy Star ratings, and their relationship to LEED energy credits. The discussion also covers the study process and current challenges to such efforts.

International Comparison of Energy Labeling and Standards for Energy Efficient and Green Buildings  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper discusses the approaches of the European Union, Germany and India to reduce GHG- emissions and mitigate climate change impacts from buildings through the establishment of energy performance standards and green building certifications. From the study of the roadmaps of the EU, Germany and India, it is quite clear that the EU and especially Germany are focussing on stringent mandatory energy standards towards 'nearly zero energy buildings'. On the other hand, India concentrates on green buildings with voluntary green building certification (GRIHA) to address the environmental challenges of the construction sector due to rapid urbanization in the country. The paper discusses the implication of mandatory vs. voluntary schemes and outlines the importance of combining the two approaches within an effective policy package. Finally, it discusses how the barriers of the implementation of energy standards and green buildings can be removed through social learning on effective policy packages.

Fuzzy Comprehensive Evaluation Model and Influence Factors Analysis on Comprehensive Performance of Green Buildings  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A green building involves complex system engineering including energy efficiency and energy utilization, water-saving and water utilization, material-saving and material utilization, and land-saving and indoor environment quality and operation management. In order to solve problems of subjectivity, uncertainty and impossibility of quantitative analysis when evaluating green building, this study establishes a multi-level fuzzy evaluation model by means of fuzzy mathematics method to analyze the comprehensive performance of green building according to the index system of Evaluation Standard for Green Building. Combined with the technique scheme of the first China green building demonstration project, the result proves to be in accordance with the pre-evaluation of experts. It shows that the fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method is reasonable and feasible to evaluate the comprehensive performance of green building. The evaluation result is the same as the pre-evaluation result. Factors with high weights have larger effects on the results. This proves that the guideline should be the first reference mode in the future engineering practice so as to realize optimization of green building performance.

Case Study of Energy Diagnose and Re-commissioning in a Green Office Building  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Building progress consists of master planning, design detail, construction, acceptance and management phases. Due to lack of communication, there are many gaps between the adjacent phases in building progress, such as, the big gap between construction and acceptance phase. The gaps lead to miss part of design intent when buildings were functioned. Although many prevailing evaluation systems like GOBAS or LEED mean to cover a whole building progress, in reality, they only pay much attention to design phase and generally ignore commissioning phase after construction. It leads an inefficiently facility management of HVAC systems and components. Energy diagnose and re-commissioning by on-site measurement can solve these problems, to improve systems' efficiency and bridge the gap between acceptance and management phase, finally realize a real green building. In this paper, it presents a case study result of applying this approach in a green office building in Beijing and shows how re-commissioning and energy diagnose contribute significantly to reach a real green building for long-term functioning. That Green Office Building was certified as Golden Level by LEED, and evaluated as Level B by GOBAS. All these evaluation did before construction phase. But the actual power consumption, 74kWh/m2.a, is twice as the designed consumption, and is only a bit less than other common office building. One month on-site measurement and half a year of data collected after acceptance phase show that some energy-efficient equipment do not run in a proper way. By re-commissioning, most of the systems in the Green Building work well.

Green Buildings: Principles, Practices and Techniques, The French "HQE" Versus the American "LEED"  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Buildings account for a large amount of land use, energy and water consumption, in addition to air and atmosphere alteration. Considering the statistics and the impact of the built environment on human health as well as the natural environment, reducing the amount of natural resources consumed by the buildings industry and the amount of pollution given off is seen as critical to achieve sustainability. Green Buildings are expected to reduce greenhouse gasses, save the natural resources and meet the users justifiable demand for more comfort and safety; in addition to their promising projected value within the global economy. Within the international framework and assessment tools designed to address the buildings environmental issues, this paper aims to outline and compare two of the worlds leading standards for Green Buildings, the French HQE and the American LEED assessment systems in order to reveal the differences as well as the common ground and the shared concerns of both systems. A set of environmental issues were selected in such a way to cover the three aspects of the buildings sustainability. The findings of the comparison show an advantage for the French system in addition to its innovative extension of the concept to the urban planning operations.

Re-Assessing Green Building Performance: A Post Occupancy Evaluation of 22 GSA Buildings  

SciTech Connect

2nd report on the performance of GSA's sustainably designed buildings. The purpose of this study was to provide an overview of measured whole building performance as it compares to GSA and industry baselines. The PNNL research team found the data analysis illuminated strengths and weaknesses of individual buildings as well as the portfolio of buildings. This section includes summary data, observations that cross multiple performance metrics, discussion of lessons learned from this research, and opportunities for future research. The summary of annual data for each of the performance metrics is provided in Table 25. The data represent 1 year of measurements and are not associated with any specific design features or strategies. Where available, multiple years of data were examined and there were minimal significant differences between the years. Individually focused post occupancy evaluation (POEs) would allow for more detailed analysis of the buildings. Examining building performance over multiple years could potentially offer a useful diagnostic tool for identifying building operations that are in need of operational changes. Investigating what the connection is between the building performance and the design intent would offer potential design guidance and possible insight into building operation strategies. The 'aggregate operating cost' metric used in this study represents the costs that were available for developing a comparative industry baseline for office buildings. The costs include water utilities, energy utilities, general maintenance, grounds maintenance, waste and recycling, and janitorial costs. Three of the buildings that cost more than the baseline in Figure 45 have higher maintenance costs than the baseline, and one has higher energy costs. Given the volume of data collected and analyzed for this study, the inevitable request is for a simple answer with respect to sustainably designed building performance. As previously stated, compiling the individual building values into single metrics is not statistically valid given the small number of buildings, but it has been done to provide a cursory view of this portfolio of sustainably designed buildings. For all metrics except recycling cost per rentable square foot and CBE survey response rate, the averaged building performance was better than the baseline for the GSA buildings in this study.

Making Green Building Units By Using Some Wastes of Ceramic Industry  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The ceramic tiles industry produces a lot of wastes such as ceramic sludge, broken under quality tiles and the ceramic dust. The accumulated wastes comprise a great pollution problem on the surrounded environment. The ceramic properties of Egyptian clays show that they are highly plastic and very sensitive upon drying. Accordingly, they are continuously in need to some additives for adjusting such properties. The environmental impact of this work is producing a green building unit has a zero waste energy. The recycling of ceramic solid waste industry in building operations contributes with minimizing the energy consumption and the cost of building to achieve building sustainability. In this work each of 15, 25 and 50% ceramic sludge solid waste were mixed with a chosen clayey raw material for making green building bricks. The mix contains 15% sludge and 85% clay shows a lower plasticity coefficient and an insensitive behaviour upon drying in addition to suitable physico-mechanical properties for the fired clay articles. This suggested mix was applied within a common brick fabric in Egypt for studying the possibility of its industrial application.

The Austin Green Building Program: an analysis of the program's effectiveness  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Current water shortages in the United States and Texas are expected to only worsen so that by 2050, approximately 40% of both U.S. and Texas residents will live in areas of water scarcity (U.S. House Committee, 2003; Texas Water Development Board, 2003). In response to these grim projections, both lawmakers and environmentalists are calling for conservation measures so that future shortages or costly new supply initiatives are avoided. One area where substantial consumption decreases could be made is the municipal sector, which is projected to account for 35% of all water consumed in Texas by 2050 (Texas Water Development Board, 2002). Both organizations and voluntary programs have been established to reduce water consumption in this area. One of the largest and most innovative programs in the state is the Austin Green Building Program (AGBP). It was the first program of its kind in the U.S. that rates new homes and remodels in regards to five categories related to sustainability: energy efficiency, water efficiency, materials efficiency, health and safety and community (City of Austin, 2001). This research identified the factors (weather, home size, lot size, appraised value, and existence of a pool) that effect water consumption for residences qualifying as "Austin Green Homes", and identified those green features or designs that had the greatest effect on water consumption, that were most commonly included, and the reasons why contractors incorporated them. Non-green features such as temperature, rainfall, home and lot size, appraised value and a pool seemed to have the greatest impact on water consumption, from an analysis of R2 values, albeit a positive relation for each variable. When green features were investigated, findings showed that different features were effective in reducing water consumption for different builders and in many cases, water-conserving features actually led to increased use. Finally, results showed that large builders incorporated fewer water-related green features in their homes and achieved lower star ratings in general than small green builders.

Comparison of the National Green Building Standard (ICC 700-2008) and LEED for Homes to the Residential Provisions of the 2009 IECC for the Delaware Green for Green Program  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Adhering to Delawares Green for Green program specifications results in homes being built to more energy-efficient levels than the 2009 IECC levels. Specifically: Certifying at the Silver Performance Level for the ICC 700 standard using either the Prescriptive or Performance Paths will result in a residential building that is more efficient than if the building only complied with the 2009 IECC. Certifying at the Silver level under LEED for Homes standard, including mandatory compliance with ENERGY STAR 2006 and earning two additional energy points will result in a residential building that is more efficient than if the building only complied with the 2009 IECC.

The Development of a Global Example- Our Headquarters are becoming a "Green Building"  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Deutsche Bank towers in Frankfurt-am- Main, headquarters and emblem of one of Germany's largest banks are being converted into one of the world's most environmentally friendly high-rise buildings. This comprehensive modernization is turning the towers into a "Green Building", a structure whose operation is ecologically sustainable, boasts low resource consumption and offers a highly-user-friendly architecture. This holistic approach not only offers an improved working environment for employees, but also delivers greater economy as a result of the space gained through the conversion, not to mention greater openness. Thanks to the utilization of modern building technology, the consumption of heating energy, water and electricity will be reduced by 50 percent on average, resulting in a reduction in CO2 emissions of 55%. This conversion is setting new standards internationally, and represents another milestone in the sustainability strategy of Deutsche Bank.

The Green Building Scheme for a Sustainable Eco-City in Taipei  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Taipei City has put a significant effort toward the implementation of green design and green building schemes towards a sustainable eco-city. Although some of the environmental indicators have not indicated significant progress in environmental improvement, implementing the two schemes has obtained considerable results; therefore, the two schemes are on the right path towards promoting a sustainable eco-city. However, it has to be admitted that the two schemes are a rather technocratic set of solutions and eco-centric approach. It is suggested that not only the public sector but also the private sector need to put more effort toward implement the schemes, and the government needs to encourage the private sector to adopt the schemes in practice.

Total Facility Control - Applying New Intelligent Technologies to Energy Efficient Green Buildings  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Energy efficiency through intelligent control is a core element of any "Green Building". We need smarter, more efficient ways of managing the energy consuming elements within a building. But what we think of as "the building" is only a small piece of the puzzle. We have to think broader in order to gain the greater energy savings and efficiencies that are possible. "Total Facility Control" is a concept that we need to embrace and consider when we design, commission, and retrofit our facilities. Very often a single building is part of a larger campus or collection of buildings under a common management domain. Be it a university, public school district, office complex, or multiuse tenant space, there are often multiple "buildings" plus the connectivity between buildings: walkway lighting, signage, parking structures, and even the irrigation systems. We don't often think about the outdoor lighting, security, or irrigation as part of the building management plan, but it can be a significant contributing factor when looking at places to save on energy and improve operational efficiency. We must change the way we design our buildings, facilities, campuses, and enterprises in order to be more energy efficient and be green. A variety of technologies and design principles are available to ensure we move in a positive direction. We must make our systems and processes more visible and, hence, more accessible. At the core of this is the visibility and control of the systems within these environments. A majority of the building control systems in operation today are extremely limited in their ability to achieve higher efficiencies because there is no intelligent control or communication system available; and the amount of cross system interoperability is even scarcer. What does an interoperable system architecture look like? It's one in which a wide variety of energy consuming, intelligent devices can share their information and be controlled by an energy management system. Newer technologies use open systems, open protocols, and higher levels of interoperability, all of which have been proven to cost effectively provide competitive solutions. Better energy efficiency and improved operational costs start with better visibility and control of the myriad of systems within a facility. They must communicate together in a way that enables greater functionality and lower costs. Total Facility Control must be considered as we look at the entire building envelope as well as the rest of the facility systems. Included in the mix are HVAC, indoor lighting, security, access, sun shading, indoor air quality, sound masking and alarm annunciation, elevators/escalators, appliances, power conditioning, irrigation, energy metering, outdoor/parking lot lighting, street lighting, co-generation stations, and much more. This paper will discuss some of the basic concepts, architectures, and technologies that are being used today to implement a Total Facility Control model.

The Value of Energy Performance and Green Attributes in Buildings: A Review of Existing Literature and Recommendations for Future Research  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Labels, certifications, and rating systems for energy efficiency performance and green attributes of buildings have been available in the U.S. for over 10 years, and used extensively in the European Union and Australia for longer. Such certifications and ratings can make energy efficiency more visible, and could help spur demand for energy efficiency if these designations are shown to have a positive impact on sales or rental prices. This policy brief discusses the findings and methodologies from recent studies on this topic, and suggests recommendations for future research. Although there have been just a handful of studies within the last 10 years that have investigated these effects, a few key findings emerge: To maximize sales price impact, label or rating information must be disclosed early and visibly in the sales process; The approach to evaluating energy efficiency labels (e.g., ENERGY STAR) and general green certifications (e.g., LEED or GreenPoint Rated) may need to be different, depending on the type, vintage and market penetration of the label; Collaborative efforts to promote label adoption and build a large dataset of labeled buildings will be required to produce reliable study results.

Irregular incentives  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Public utility regulation lacks a formal proxy for the economic profits that can be earned in an effectively competitive market if a firm is efficient or innovative. After all, public utility regulation operated on cost-plus basis. If a utility is efficient or innovative and lowers its costs, its typical reward is to have its rates reduced. This is a perverse incentive to motivate a utility to produce at the most efficient level. In addition, since regulation operates on this cost-plus basis, a utility can increase its net income, all other things being equal, by overinvesting in (or [open quotes]gold-plating[close quotes]) its system, another perverse incentive. Recognizing these flaws of regulation, academicians, utility executives, regulators, and legislators have tried over the last several years to implement incentive regulation plans that correct such perverse incentives. However, under many of the earnings-sharing or price-regulation incentive plans, the rewards for efficient production are not tied directly to measures under a company's control. In fact, such plans could prove highly detrimental to ratepayers and competitors of the regulated company and its affiliates. An incentive regulation plan that ties an appropriate reward for efficient production to specific efficiency gains is a better proxy of an effectively competitive environment. What's more, it is superior to an incentive plan that rewards circumstances beyond the company's control or self-serving manipulation. This is particularly true if no earnings cap is associated with the reward for efficiency. Rewards for efficient production should be tied to specific actions. A suitable incentive plan does not preclude appropriately derived flexible prices for certain products or services where warranted.

Green roofs: potential at LANL  

SciTech Connect

Green roofs, roof systems that support vegetation, are rapidly becoming one of the most popular sustainable methods to combat urban environmental problems in North America. An extensive list of literature has been published in the past three decades recording the ecological benefits of green roofs; and now those benefits have been measured in enumerated data as a means to analyze the costs and returns of green roof technology. Most recently several studies have made substantial progress quantifying the monetary savings associated with storm water mitigation, the lessoning of the Urban Heat Island, and reduction of building cooling demands due to the implementation of green roof systems. Like any natural vegetation, a green roof is capable of absorbing the precipitation that falls on it. This capability has shown to significantly decrease the amount of storm water runoff produced by buildings as well as slow the rate at which runoff is dispensed. As a result of this reduction in volume and velocity, storm drains and sewage systems are relieved of any excess stress they might experience in a storm. For many municipalities and private building owners, any increase in storm water mitigation can result in major tax incentives and revenue that does not have to be spent on extra water treatments. Along with absorption of water, vegetation on green roofs is also capable of transpiration, the process by which moisture is evaporated into the air to cool ambient temperatures. This natural process aims to minimize the Urban Heat Island Effect, a phenomenon brought on by the dark and paved surfaces that increases air temperatures in urban cores. As the sun distributes solar radiation over a city's area, dark surfaces such as bitumen rooftops absorb solar rays and their heat. That heat is later released during the evening hours and the ambient temperatures do not cool as they normally would, creating an island of constant heat. Such excessively high temperatures induce heat strokes, heat exhaustion, and pollution that can agitate the respiratory system. The most significant savings associated with green roofs is in the reduction of cooling demands due to the green roof's thermal mass and their insulating properties. Unlike a conventional roof system, a green roof does not absorb solar radiation and transfer that heat into the interior of a building. Instead the vegetation acts as a shade barrier and stabilizes the roof temperature so that interior temperatures remain comfortable for the occupants. Consequently there is less of a demand for air conditioning, and thus less money spent on energy. At LANL the potential of green roof systems has already been realized with the construction of the accessible green roof on the Otowi building. To further explore the possibilities and prospective benefits of green roofs though, the initial capital costs must be invested. Three buildings, TA-03-1698, TA-03-0502, and TA-53-0031 have all been identified as sound candidates for a green roof retrofit project. It is recommended that LANL proceed with further analysis of these projects and implementation of the green roofs. Furthermore, it is recommended that an urban forestry program be initiated to provide supplemental support to the environmental goals of green roofs. The obstacles barring green roof construction are most often budgetary and structural concerns. Given proper resources, however, the engineers and design professionals at LANL would surely succeed in the proper implementation of green roof systems so as to optimize their ecological and monetary benefits for the entire organization.

Experimental Research and Performance Analysis of a Solar-Powered Air-conditioning System in a Green Building  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Based on the green building of the Shanghai Institute of Architectural Science, a solar-powered adsorption air-conditioning system was designed. The operational performance under a typical operating mode in summer was studied, which includes temperature variations of solar collector arrays, heat storage tank and adsorption chillers as well as refrigerating output variations of the system. Experimental results show that adsorption chillers have the advantages of low driving temperature, stability and long working time with high efficiency. Under representative working conditions in summer, the average refrigerating output of solar powered air-conditioning system is 15.31kW during operation of 8 hours; moreover, the maximum attains 20kW. Correspondingly, the average system COP is 0.35, and the average solar COP is 0.15. The solar fraction in summer is concluded to be 71.73%. In addition, the variations of solar-powered air-conditioning system performance with ambient parameters (solar radiant intensity and ambient temperature) and operating parameters (temperatures and flow rates) are analyzed.

Designing superior incentive regulation  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The discussion begun in the February 15 issue pointed out some potential drawbacks to popular incentive drawbacks to popular incentive regulation (IR) plans, as they operate in practice. The principal drawback is that the plans can create strong incentives for recontracting by well-intentioned regulators who face strong pressures to please their constituents. The likelihood of recontracting, in turn, can diminish the incentives for superior performance presented to the regulated firm. The question that remains is whether popular IR plans like price-cap regulation (PCR) can be modified to reduce the likelihood of recontracting, and thereby restore incentives for superior performance by the regulated firm. The answer is yes'.

Adoption of Voluntary Environmental Standards: The Role of Signaling and Intrinsic Benefits in the Diffusion of the LEED Green Building Standards  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We examine the role of signaling and of intrinsic benefits in the adoption of the individual elements of the voluntary LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards for green buildings. We use goodness-of-fit tests on data for all 442 LEED certified buildings and find that neither signaling nor pursuit of intrinsic benefits can independently explain the observed adoption pattern, but that a combination of the two factors can. We also find tentative evidence that the adoption decision is made sequentially: organizations first choose a level of certification (consistent with signaling), and then choose how many LEED elements to adopt given their chosen level of certification (consistent with pursuing intrinsic benefits). We relate our findings to some open questions in the literature on diffusion of technology and draw implications for the design and the future development of similar voluntary standards and eco-labels.

Incentive regulation and the regulation of incentives  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

This thesis explores the regulatory problem of incentives and the question of how to create a regulatory framework that most nearly aligns the firm's private interests with the public good. The main themes are: (1) an efficiency loss is inherent in the regulatory relationship, as long as the regulator knows less about the firm's operations than the firm itself; and (2) regulation itself is an incentive mechanism, so that the regulator can choose how to motivate the firm but now whether to do so. An analytical model is used to show the tradeoff between inducing efficient production and efficient pricing. The thesis surveys and analyzes incentive regulation mechanisms adopted by state utility commissions, using a Washington state plan as a case study. A natural extension of incentive regulation is discussed, in which the firm's reward depends on the total gain in consumer surplus rather than just the reduction in expenditures. The ability of the regulator to commit to future actions is central to incentive regulation, as well as many other aspects of regulation.

Photovoltaic Incentive Design Handbook  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Investments in customer-owned grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) energy systems are growing at a steady pace. This is due, in part, to the availability of attractive economic incentives offered by public state agencies and utilities. In the United States, these incentives have largely been upfront lump payments tied to the system capacity rating. While capacity-based ''buydowns'' have stimulated the domestic PV market, they have been criticized for subsidizing systems with potentially poor energy performance. As a result, the industry has been forced to consider alternative incentive structures, particularly ones that pay based on long-term measured performance. The industry, however, lacks consensus in the debate over the tradeoffs between upfront incentive payments versus longer-term payments for energy delivery. This handbook is designed for agencies and utilities that offer or intend to offer incentive programs for customer-owned PV systems. Its purpose is to help select, design, and implement incentive programs that best meet programmatic goals. The handbook begins with a discussion of the various available incentive structures and then provides qualitative and quantitative tools necessary to design the most appropriate incentive structure. It concludes with program administration considerations.

Designing superior incentive regulation  

SciTech Connect

The key to success in designing effective incentive regulation is relatively simple: Anticipate all of the incentives that will ultimately come to bear, and structure regulatory policy in advance to limit any adverse incentives. All is a critical word here. Attention commonly is focused on the incentives a proposed regulatory plan creates for the regulated firm to minimize production costs, diversify into new markets, and so on. While the incentives are important in assessing a regulatory plan, they are only one consideration. It is also critical to analyze the incentives the plan creates for other key players in the regulatory arena, particularly regulators. It is premature to draw any broad conclusions about the success of incentive regulation in the electric power and natural gas industries. While there is reason for optimism, concern remain. Some incentive regulation plans have been abandoned, in part because of: (1) unforeseen exogenous event that could not be administered within the confines of the plan; (2) public opposition to rewarding a utility for the superior performance it should have realized without the promise of financial reward; (3) adverse reaction to utility earnings in excess of those commonly authorized under traditional regulation, and (4) questions about the legality of the plans under state statutes.

The Contemporary Architecture Design for the Housing Green Buildings and its Role in Saving Energy in the Arab City  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In the Arab cities the housing buildings is to be exposed to the sun-hot rays specially in the summer, which is effected on peoples indoors and outdoors. Therefore, many peoples used Air conditioning apparatus to have the cold air in their houses. And now we in the age of the advanced technology in Architecture and construction, then its very important to realize the suitable Architecture design indoor for living areas by using the large several new and contemporary building materials. And treat the case of the hot climate with the importance of the environmental spaces outdoor the housing buildings, which aims to realize the comfort temperature and do reducing the consumptions of electricity in the air conditioning and the payments of money, and the important one is to save energy in the housing buildings and urban zones in the Arab cities. At the end we exhibit the important results and recommendations.

Two essays on incentives  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

I examine two sets of incentives faced by corporate CEOs to determine how they respond to those incentives. I compare firms that restate financial statements to firms that do not restate to test the hypotheses that bank monitoring should provide incentives to deter misreporting. For relatively less (more) severe misreporting, I find the likelihood of misreporting is positively related (unrelated) to bank borrowing, and that ex ante changes in bank debt are positive (unrelated) for misreporting firms versus control firms. These results suggest that bank monitoring is insufficient to deter or detect misreporting, rather that it may provide incentives for managers to engage in relatively less severe misreporting, consistent with the "debt covenant hypothesis". I next examine the incentives that CEOs have to increase firm value that result from their compensation packages and opportunities for advancement in the managerial labor market. Traditional methods for estimating pay-performance sensitivity exclude incentives that derive from opportunities for advancement in the managerial labor market and assume a linear relation between changes in pay and changes in performance. But results in recent literature imply that advancement opportunities may be a significant source of incentives and that the relation between changes in pay and changes in performance may depend upon the level of performance. I estimate payperformance sensitivities that incorporate these results. I find that although performance may be positively related to opportunities for advancement, the contribution to a CEO's total pay-performance sensitivity is too small to be economically significant. I also find that pay-performance sensitivities vary depending on the level of performance and may be higher or lower than estimates from linear models suggest. In sum, observed CEO pay packages may not be as suboptimal as some prior studies suggest.
