Course Description

Course Title:  Integrating Measurable Energy Efficiency Performance Specifications Into Design-Build Acquisition and Delivery Course Presenters: Paul Torcellini & Shanti Pless  Course Length:  3 Modules / 2.5 hours   Course Credit Hours:  2.5 Hours     Course Overview: Through a series of new construction projects at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and ongoing collaborations between NREL and industry, it has been shown that highly energy-efficient buildings can be procured within typical construction budgets. Success stories include NREL’s Research Support Facility (RSF), Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF), and Parking Structure. An energy efficiency goal was the foundation for each project. A goal, though, is not sufficient for success. An acquisition strategy that incentivizes an innovative design and construction team to meet the energy goal in design and operations is also...

Success stories include NREL’s Research Support Facility (RSF), Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF), and Parking Structure. An energy efficiency goal was the foundation for each project. A goal, though, is not sufficient for success. An acquisition strategy that incentivizes an innovative design and construction team to meet the energy goal in design and operations is also critical. Using a well- planned process, owners can be confident that their projects will have system- integrated, cost-effective efficiency strategies and renewable technologies that perform as predicted. Specifically, this course investigates why aggressive energy efficiency is a necessary and achievable goal for commercial buildings. It considers goal setting and how the form of an energy goal can influence the result. The course looks at the NREL new construction examples, which used maximum energy use targets and subsystem energy criteria; lessons learned and best practices from these case studies are shared. Lastly, general steps are given to assist owners in designing and facilitating an energy- focused process for their construction projects. Learning Objectives: Define the most important attributes of an acquisition process that will ensure aggressive energy performance Understand how to define whole building and subsystem energy goals Write draft contract language that will help balance cost and energy performance Integrate measurable energy use requirements into the design-build delivery process Attachments: Module 1 Handouts Module 2 Handouts Module 3 Handouts Presenter Bio:  Paul Torcellini Presenter Bio: Shanti Pless
