Description

Dozens of Federal agencies design, construct, renovate, and maintain thousands of offices, warehouses, and dwelling units in a wide range of climates and conditions. As the world's largest consumer of energy (1.2 quadrillion British thermal units [Btu] delivered to the point of use in fiscal year 1994), the Federal government has a tremendous opportunity to save vast amounts of money each year in energy costs. Executive Order 12902, which was passed in 1994, challenges Federal building managers to reduce the energy consumption of these facilities (30% from 1985 levels by the year 2005). To meet this challenge, they have been ... continued below

Description

Dozens of Federal agencies design, construct, renovate, and maintain thousands of offices, warehouses, and dwelling units in a wide range of climates and conditions. As the world's largest consumer of energy (1.2 quadrillion British thermal units [Btu] delivered to the point of use in fiscal year 1994), the Federal government has a tremendous opportunity to save vast amounts of money each year in energy costs. Executive Order 12902, which was passed in 1994, challenges Federal building managers to reduce the energy consumption of these facilities (30% from 1985 levels by the year 2005). To meet this challenge, they have been directed to incorporate energy efficiency, renewable energy, and specifically, passive solar design into all major projects when it is technically and economically feasible. But how can they do it? The information presented here will help them initiate and manage the procurement and design process and answer many of their questions. This is a Guide for Federal Building Managers, Architects, and Engineers.
