Title: Open market customer: Volume 1 -- Methods and case findings. Final report

Abstract

The Open Market Customer (OMC) report categorized nine specific choices by annual industry revenue; developed some of the inter-relationships between the various customer choices; and predicted how the customers, suppliers, technologies, energy products, and services may change given the basic restructuring of the industry. Gellings and Gudger estimate that the OMC market has annual expenditures of $780 billion and over $2 trillion in total investment. The purposes of this study were to illustrate the OMC principle and improve upon its numeric precision, develop a methodology for conducting an OMC assessment, and develop baseline data for future OMC assessments. The approach involved carrying out eight case study assessments of various commercial/industrial facilities. For each OMC case study, the annual energy expenditures and total investments for energy-related capital were determined for all types of fuel used at the facility. Annual expenditures include both the cost of energy, maintenance of the energy-related equipment, and labor. All annual expenditures and investments were assigned to one of nine business function areas depending on the function of the expenditure or investment. Eight types of commercial and industrial facilities were characterized. Four case studies were of actual facilities; four were of prototype facilities. The actual case studiesmore » consisted of Logan International Airport, Boston, MA; Washington University, St. Louis, MO; Cook County Hospital, Chicago, IL; and Sierra Pine Limited (a medium-density fiberboard manufacturer), Rocklin, CA. The four prototype case studies consisted of a 7,000 square foot retail building; a 3,500 square foot sit-down restaurant; and 50,000 square foot primary school; and a 782 home, 160 acre planned residential community.« less
