Title: Commercial sector energy consumption: analysis and recommendations for data collection. Final report

Abstract

Alternative methods for collecting or estimating energy consumption data in the commercial sector are analyzed. The SIC System codes provide the best existing system for developing uniform data. Data analysis in the commercial sector is difficult because a large number of establishments rent space and do not pay for energy consumption directly. The problems of allocating consumption by SIC code within office buildings or shopping malls is addressed in Chapter II along with a discussion of the means, costs, and limitations of such a reporting system. A discussion of costs and problems of developing data from a survey of commercial users is provided in Chapters III and IV. Chapter V discusses improving consumption data by fuel type and data collection on functional end use. Status of state programs is reviewed in an appendix.
