Verifying a Simplified Fuel Oil Flow Field Measurement Protocol

Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


The Better Buildings program is a U.S. Department of Energy program funding energy efficiency retrofits in buildings nationwide. The program is in need of an inexpensive method for measuring fuel oil consumption that can be used in evaluating the impact that retrofits have in existing properties with oil heat. This project developed and verified a fuel oil flow field measurement protocol that iscost effective and can be performed with little training for use by the Better Buildings program as well as other programs and researchers.
