Webinar: Economics of energy efficiency and fuel switching for commercial-scale buildings

When: Wednesday, Jan 31, 2018

Where: Online webinar

Please join us for a free Peninsula Advanced Energy Community (PAEC) webinar at 11am – 12pm PT on January 31, 2018. Register here.

What you’ll learn

We’ll cover the economic benefits of eight energy efficiency and fuel switching measures for five building types, and we’ll show you how we determined the savings and payback times.

Building types:

  • Offices
  • Retail spaces
  • Municipal buildings
  • Multifamily dwellings
  • Schools

Energy efficiency and fuel switching measures:

  • LED lighting conversion
  • Building Management Systems (BMS) and advanced controls
  • Reduction in phantom loads
  • Higher-efficiency windows
  • Improved insulation quality
  • Replacement of obsolete air conditioning with higher-efficiency systems
  • Heat pumps as replacements for natural gas space heating
  • Alternative water heating systems

Economic metrics used to determine savings:

  • Capital cost
  • Incentives available
  • Incremental operations & maintenance
  • Annual energy savings
  • System life

About PAEC and our webinar series

PAEC is a groundbreaking initiative funded by the California Energy Commission to streamline policies and showcase projects that facilitate local renewables and other advanced energy solutions like energy efficiency, energy storage, and electric vehicle charging infrastructure. The PAEC initiative will create pathways to cost-effective clean local energy and community resilience throughout San Mateo County, the City of Palo Alto, and beyond. Learn more about the PAEC initiative.

This webinar is the first in a series based on findings from the PAEC initiative. Future topics include streamlining interconnection of commercial solar, and best practices to encourage energy efficiency, renewable energy, zero net energy, energy storage, and electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
