50% Advanced Energy Design Guide for K-12 School Buildings

Web Abstract: 
Guide provides a sensible approach to easily achieve advanced levels of energy savings in K-12 school buildings without having to resort to detailed calculations or analysis. Covers administrative and office, classrooms, hallways, restrooms, gymnasiums, assembly, libraries, food preparation and dining areas. Case studies and technical examples throughout the guide illustrate the recommendations and demonstrate the technologies in real-world applications. Includes recommendations for practical products and off-the-shelf technology needed for achieving a 50% energy savings compared to buildings that meet the minimum requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004. The energy savings target of 50% is the first step in the process toward achieving a net-zero energy building, which is defined as a building that, on an annual basis, draws from outside resources equal or less energy than it provides using on-site renewable energy sources.
