How can I talk to clients about the uncertainty in models? I recently had a client who wanted to find the lowest cost solution of several design options. Some of the options performed very similarly, probably within the simulation's margin of error. I want to explain to clients like this that I can't guarantee one "best" option, but I don't...

The Building Technologies Office (BTO) recently issued an article on the reasons why the timing of energy efficiency matters – we build electricity systems to meet peak demand, generation resources are economically dispatched, and the social cost of...

States invest in energy efficiency largely because it is a low-cost resource that can displace the need for traditional supply-side investments including electricity generation and transmission and distribution (T&D). Regulators and utilities account for costs and benefits using cost-effectiveness tests that inform utility and regulatory decision making about...

With support and funding from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Building Technologies Office at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)...
