EMO uses energy models for new construction, existing buildings, renovations, and historic rehabilitation projects:
"Whole Building" Energy Simulation models help to initiate the integrated design approach across all building disciplines and from initial concept design through final construction level documents. EMO can provide their clients with detailed hourly information including, but not limited to; building loading, system application & selection, thermal comfort, controls, envelope, and comparative studies.
Generate the Baseline: Generate a DOE-2 energy model of the current design of the facility including all proposed building systems using the ASHRAE 90.1 guidelines for new construction where applicable. The baseline case is compared to ASHRAE 90.1 or existing building code and Performance Rating Method (PRM) for LEED; helps to drive energy goals and targets.
Generate and Evaluate Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs): Generate parametric runs for any and all applicable ECMs tailored to improve LEED® EA Credit 1 performance and/or improvements beyond ASHRAE 90.1-2007
Final Design: Present the packaged ECMs, highlighting the energy savings, the overall Energy Usage Intensity (EUI-kBtu/sf) reduction, and the potential LEED® credits awarded.
