Best of GreenBuild Webcast Series -- Greening LEED Volume Modeling and M&V: A Love Story?

If you missed 2014 GreenBuild, now is your chance to see some of the top-notch sessions that were recorded.

How do you make a small building with diverse loads efficient? What is the best way to model non-regulated equipment and refrigeration systems?  How does a team effectively show energy savings in process or plug loads?  Does the post-occupancy data support the modeled energy use? What changes would you make to help future models reflect real-world energy profiles?  All these questions and, hopefully, the answers will be presented as part of this educational session.  A convenience store has many special energy use situations, but most of these challenges are found in all buildings (i.e., high plug loads, server loads, process loads), although, relevant post-occupancy data on these challenges are rarely available.  This presentation will show original modeled energy use, archived energy use data, and real-time energy use profiles from various facilities in multiple climate zones.  Modeling refrigeration energy use and defining/documenting improved energy efficiency of the refrigeration will be reviewed.  

The project team will embarrass themselves by sharing their original modeling process, design assumptions, and expected energy use by load.  Challenges associated with developing energy models for multiple climate zones under the LEED Volume program will also be referenced in the program.  

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will be able to correctly address and reconcile process load efficiency in an energy model.
  • Audience members will understand the process required to effectively define and measure energy use by category.
  • Participants will be able to define reasonable expectations concerning the ability of energy modeling software to reflect real-world energy use.
  • Audience members will be able to define systems that will provide post-occupancy information allowing them to provided predictive maintenance and troubleshooting.

  • Chris Ladner, LEED Fellow, CxA, CEM; Owner, Viridian, Little Rock, Arkansas
  • Danny Halel, CVE; Application Engineering Manager, Hussmann Corporation, Bridgeton, Missouri
