Building America Case Study: Community-Scale Energy Modeling (Fact Sheet)

Stacey Rothgeb, D. Prahl, R. Beach

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


IBACOS analyzed pre-retrofit daily utility data to sort homes by energy consumption, allowing for better targeting of homes for physical audits. Following ASHRAE Guideline 14 normalization procedures, electricity consumption of 1,166 all electric production-built homes' was modeled. The homes were in two communities -- one built in the 1970s and the other in the mid-2000s.
