Reality Impacts Energy Use: Lessons from the “First Ten”

December 12, 2012

Des Moines, IA & Cedar Rapids, IA

Explore energy use and efficiency opportunity from design intent to operation through specific examples of ten Iowa commercial buildings and see how these examples may translate to improved operational performance for your building.

Alliant Energy commissioned a study of the first ten buildings to complete their Commercial New Construction (CNC) program in Iowa to compare design projections with operational achievements after at least one year of service. The CNC program provides Energy Design Assistance to owners and design teams to evaluate alternative energy efficiency strategies for new and renovated building projects during design.

The study used utility bills, weather corrections, field observations and owner surveys to understand the actual energy use in these buildings. This allowed for updated model projections for the buildings, resulting in real-world observations about operational changes. Other owners and building operators can learn from these observations in evaluating their own energy use patterns.

There is a catered lunch and brown bag and/or presentation only option for this event at both locations.  You will be prompted during registration to indicate which location you will be participating from and whether or not you will be wanting the catered option.  You will also be prompted to input your GBCI and AIA number.
