Ranges for integrative design energy efficiency potential in buildings sector

http://www.rmi.org/RFGraph-integrative_design_energy_efficiency_potential_buildings
Our analysis revealed that leveraging the best practices in integrative design in new construction and retrofits for both commercial and residential buildings can generate savings that range from 42% to 87% below business-as-usual energy demand.

 

Energy use savings for integrative design cases (new residential)

http://www.rmi.org/RFGraph-Energy_use_savings_integrative_design_cases_new_residential
The savings achieved through integrative design vary by case, but all are significant. The performance and baseline for 13 new construction residential case studies are included here and can be compared to the average physical energy use intensity for new residential buildings in the EIA’s Annual Energy Outlook 2010.

 

Energy use savings for integrative design cases (existing commercial)

http://www.rmi.org/RFGraph-energy_savings_integrative_design_exist_commercial
The savings achieved through integrative design vary by case, but all are significant. The performance and baseline for 11 commercial retrofit case studies are included here and can be compared to the average physical energy use intensity for new residential buildings in the EIA’s Annual Energy Outlook 2010.

 

Energy use savings for integrative design cases (existing residential)

http://www.rmi.org/RFGraph-Energy_use_savings_integrative_design cases_existing_residential
The savings achieved through integrative design vary by case, but all are significant. The performance and baseline for six residential retrofit case studies are included here and can be compared to the average physical energy use intensity for new residential buildings in the EIA’s Annual Energy Outlook 2010.

The performance and baseline for 11 new commercial construction case studies are included here and can be compared to the average physical energy use intensity for new residential buildings in the EIA’s Annual Energy Outlook 2010.

 

Integrative design cases: performance and costs

http://www.rmi.org/RFGraph-integrative_design_cases_performance_costs
The costs of saving energy via integrative design vary widely. This scatterplot compares the physical energy use intensity of integrative design cases to the cost of conserved energy for these projects. In some cases, integrative design yields greater savings than standard design with no (or sometimes negative) incremental cost. In other cases, the building may have a significant cost premium.
