Nonresidential Plug Load Modeling

Measure Description

The Nonresidential Plug Load Modeling CASE Report will propose revisions to the W/sq. ft. assumptions and hourly schedules that the Title 24 compliance software uses to estimate plug load energy use in new and existing nonresidential buildings. The updated rulesets will be presented as revised language for the Nonresidential Alternate Calculation Method Reference Manual. The revised assumptions will rely on a literature review of data sources such as non-residential building surveys, submetering studies, and energy models. This measure does not include updating the assumptions used to estimate unregulated lighting loads.

This measure may also include one or more compliance credits for measures that achieve beyond-code plug load energy savings and can be easily, objectively verified. The Statewide CASE Team is investigating compliance credit options for elevators and welcomes additional suggestions for beyond-code plug load efficiency measures.

There are no energy savings expected from this measure.
