Webinar: Overview of the Advanced Energy Retrofit Guide (AERG) for Grocery Stores
Tuesday, May 7, 2013
2:00-3:30 PM Central Time
The U.S. Department of Energy will be holding a webinar to help commercial building owners and managers plan, design, and implement energy improvements in existing facilities through Advanced Energy Retrofit Guides (AERGs). Each AERG is tailored to the needs of a specific building type, with an emphasis on the most effective commissioning and efficiency measures identified by experts familiar with the opportunities and challenges unique to retrofit projects. Four AERGs have been put together to address a specific building type: office buildings, K-12 schools, retail stores, and grocery stores.
This webinar will provide an overview of the Grocery Store AERG, which provides comprehensive analytical methods and data for calculating the cost-effectiveness of the highest priority measures that should be considered for a grocery store retrofit project. These methods are supplemented with: (1) examples using the Pre-1980s Commercial Reference Buildings; and (2) detailed case studies demonstrating how organizations have successfully implemented similar measures.
