These strategies aim at tackling the most consumptive energy uses-heating, cooling and lighting:

Heating and Cooling
Mechanical systems can vary widely based on building needs, geographical location, and air flow requirements. The following applications could be considered:
  • Passive or natural ventilation
  • Geothermal systems
  • Gas heat and DX cooling

New fixture and bulb technologies, in addition to natural light harvesting, allow for more efficient lighting strategies.
  • Efficient fixtures
  • Efficient bulbs (CFLs, LEDs)
  • Daylight Solutions (light shelves, solar tubes)

Building Automation
Building technology and practices can help achieve efficiency.
  • Lighting controls and occupancy sensors
  • Commissioning and proper building operation
  • Enhanced building envelope insulation

Benefits

  • Decreased energy use and operating costs
  • Reduced carbon emissions
  • Increased worker productivity
