Title: Development of building models for energy budgets for building energy performance standards. Volume 1

Abstract

Energy budgets generated by the CAL-ERDA computer program will become part of the California Administrative Code (Title 24, Energy Conservation Standards for Non-Residential Buildings) as a performance standard aimed at long-term reduction in energy consumption for heating and cooling of buildings in California. Life-cycle costs of buildings constructed according to these standards are to be compared with similar results for buildings according to earlier practice. Ayres Associates, establishing the performance standards, accomplished the effort in six tasks: survey of computer programs, development of 1974 building models, development of the Title 24 building models, review CAL-ERDA computer program outputs, differential capital cost estimates of building models, and provide consulting services to the ERCDC staff. The building types considered are small and large office buildings, small and large retail stores, public assembly building, supermarket, school/classroom, restaurant, and warehouse. Representative locations are Daggett, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, and San Francisco. Additional information in 3 appendices are 1974 Restaurant Specification, Title 24 Restaurant Specification, and Restaurant Capital Cost Estimates. (MCW)
