Energy Efficiency Guide for Existing Commercial Buildings
This two-book set includes both Energy Efficiency Guides for Existing Commercial Buildings (EEG-EB). Although a part of the highly successful Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) series, the EEG-EB series concentrates solely on existing commercial buildings. The first in the series provided a business case for energy efficiency and was targeted to building owners and managers, and the second is aimed at providing technical guidance in undertaking existing building renovation programs.

The Business Case for Building Owners and Managers
Dennis R. Landsberg, Mychele R. Lord, Steven Carlson and Fredric Goldner
This Guide is the first installment in what is expected to be a three-part series and is aimed at providing the business case for energy efficiency to building owners and managers; it provides the rational for making economic decisions related to improving and sustaining energy efficiency in existing buildings. The goal of this publication is to enable building owners to evaluate current operations and conduct the economic analysis necessary to make wise decisions regarding improvements. The Guide demonstrates how to benchmark performance against comparable buildings, illustrates how energy use and cost can be reduced by at least 30%, and describes how to do all of this while minimizing capital investment and maximizing return on investment. In addition, the Guide identifies additional measures that can achieve even greater energy efficiencies and cost savings in economical ways.
