Energy use savings for integrative design cases (existing residential)

Tags


Many existing homes that were retrofitted with integrative design principles in mind have achieved a physical energy use intensity (EUI) of 30 kBTU/sf-y or less. These significant savings have been realized across a wide range of climate zones.

The Reinventing Fire analysis developed its integrative design estimates by taking the average of the difference between the performed EUI in these cases and the AEO 2010 baseline.
