Research output: NRELTechnical Report


This document discusses the development of a segmentation approach for the U.S. commercial building stock that is focused on identifying similarities that align with common decarbonization strategies. The resulting nine-segment approach primarily uses similarities in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, service water heating systems, and presence of cooking equipment to separate buildings into categories.
