Title: Laboratories for the 21st Century: Energy Analysis

Abstract

This study, done for the joint DOE-EPA Laboratories for the 21st Century program ("Labs 21"), used a simplified computer model to analyze the effects of energy efficiency measures in laboratory buildings in four different climates: those of Minneapolis, Denver, Seattle, and Atlanta. Results show that using variable-air-volume fume hoods can reduce lab energy costs as much as$1 per square foot in any climate. Energy-recovery systems such as enthalpy wheels also save varying amounts of energy and money in all climates. Savings for other measures, such as heat pipes and evaporated cooling, are also included.
