Best Practices in Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency can enhance human health by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving outdoor air quality and decreasing acid rain. The energy needed to run commercial and industrial buildings in the United States produces 19 percent of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions, 12 percent of nitrogen oxides, and 25 percent of sulfur dioxide, at a cost of $110 billion a year. The healthcare sector is in need of cost effective solutions to address the rising cost of energy and the health implications of energy use.

Best Practices Benchmarking for Energy Efficiency Programs

Best Practices Self-Benchmarking Tool: Use this easy tool to identify in your own programs their strengths, areas of improvement needed, and strategies for improving them, based on the results of the Best Practices Study. Just download the Self-Benchmarking Spreadsheet and Instruction Sheet and you'll have everything you need.

Best Practices Guide for Energy-Efficient Data Center Design

This guide provides an overview of best practices for energy-efficient data center design which spans the categories of Information Technology (IT) systems and their environmental conditions, data center air management, cooling and electrical systems, on-site generation, and heat recovery. IT system energy efficiency and environmental conditions arepresented first because measures taken in these areas have a cascading effect of secondary energy savings for the mechanical and electrical systems.
