High-Efficiency Retrofit Lessons for Retail from a SuperTarget: Preprint

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The National Renewable Energy Laboratory partnered with Target under the Commercial Building Program to design and implement a retrofit of a SuperTarget in Thornton, CO. The result was a retrofit design that predicted 37% energy savings over ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2004, and 29% compared to existing (pre-retrofit) store consumption. The largest savings came from energy efficient lighting, energyefficient cooling systems, improved refrigeration, and better control of plug loads.
