Achieving very high efficiency and net zero energy in an existing home in a hot-humid climate : long-term utility and preliminary monitoring data( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study summarizes the first six months of detailed data collected on a single family home that experienced a series of retrofits targeting reductions in energy use. The project was designed to develop data on how envelope modifications and renewable measures can result in considerable energy reductions and potentially net zero energy for an existing home. Originally published in February 2012, this revised version of the report contains further research conducted on the Parker residence. Key updates include one full year of additional data, an analysis of cooling performance of the mini-split heat pump, an evaluation of room-to-room temperature distribution, and an evaluation of plug-in automobile charging performance, electricity consumption, and load shape

Hitler's warrior : the life and wars of SS Colonel Jochen Peiper by Danny S Parker( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Handsome, intelligent, impetuous, and dedicated to the Nazi cause, SS Colonel Jochen Peiper (1915-1976) was one of the most controversial figures of World War II. After volunteering for the Waffen-SS at an early age, Peiper quickly rose to prominence as Heinrich Himmler's ever-present personal adjutant in the early years of the war. Sent later to the fighting front with the fearsome 1st SS Panzer Division, Peiper became a legend for his flamboyant and brutal style of warfare. As one of Hitler's favorites, he was chosen to spearhead the Ardennes Offensive, later known as the Battle of the Bulge. After the war, Peiper became the central subject in the bitterly disputed Malmedy war crimes trial. Convicted but later released, he moved to eastern France. There, he and his past were discovered, and he died in a fiery gun battle by killers unknown even today. In Hitler's Warrior, historian Danny Parker describes Peiper both on and off the battlefield and explores his complex personality. The rich narrative is supported by years of research that has uncovered previously unpublished archival material and is enhanced with information drawn from extensive interviews with Peiper's contemporaries, including German veterans. This major new historical work is both a definitive biography of Hitler's most enigmatic warrior and a unique study of the morally inverted world of the Third Reich

Evaluation of Energy Efficiency Improvements to Portable Classroomsin Florida by Michael P Callahan( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Findings are presented from a 2-year experiment exploring ways to reduce energy costs and improve the learning environment in Florida's 25,000 portable classrooms. Improvements were made in two highly instrumented portable classrooms in the following areas: installation of a t8 lighting system with electronic ballasts; a high efficiency heat pump with enthalpy recovery ventilation (erv); a metal white reflective roof system; and an occupancy based control system for lighting and air conditioning. Findings reveal the lighting system and occupancy control reduced lighting energy use by an average of 53 percent from one year to the next. The erv provided five times the ventilation air found in the initial configuration, while still controlling indoor humidity to an acceptable level; this significantly cut internal co2 levels with a potential beneficial impact on indoor air quality. Total reduction in space conditioning energy needs was 39 percent or about 6.9 kWh/day. The project demonstrates the feasibility of altering new portable classrooms in Florida so that they use 40 percent less electricity. Energy savings greater than 30 percent were demonstrated for existing portable classrooms through automated controls and simple changes to the lighting system. (Contains 21 references.) (Gr)

Measured Field Performance and Energy Savings of Occupancy Sensors: Three Case Studies by David B Floyd( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study determined the performance levels, energy savings, and occupant acceptance of occupancy sensors that were installed in a Florida small office building and two elementary schools. Performance data was collected in 15-minute intervals. Aggregate time-of-day lighting load profiles were compared before and after the installation and throughout the commissioning period when the sensors were tuned for optimum performance. Data reveal a 10 percent savings in energy usage in one of the two schools where sensors were installed in classrooms, the cafeteria, and administrative offices. Improper sensor installation, set-up, and faulty user operation inhibited energy performance in the other school. Also, sensor malfunctions adversely affected the energy savings in the office building; following their corrections, energy savings improvements were noted. All three case studies suggest that occupancy sensors can provide savings in a variety of building types. However, it is noted that savings will greatly vary due to occupancy patterns, and previous method of control and lighting load. It was determined that savings and user acceptance for areas selected for control by occupancy sensors are influenced by proper sensor selection, location, and controls commissioning.

Energy Efficiency for Florida Educational Facilities The 1996 Energy Survey of Florida Schools. Final Report by Michael P Callahan( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Florida has recently completed a survey of energy use and related physical and operational characteristics of the state's public schools. This report presents results from 1,298 surveys received (680 providing matching utility data) revealing that total energy costs for the Florida school system totaled $205 million in 1995. Other data show that floor area and number of students influenced energy use, schools with light colored roofs used 7 percent less annual energy, classrooms with windows used 18 percent less energy than those without windows, schools using predominantly packaged cooling equipment rather than central chillers used 24 percent less energy, facilities with ceiling fans in classrooms substantially reduced energy needs and higher cooling set point temperatures, and schools with operable windows which could be opened for ventilation showed 12 percent lower energy use. This document provides the study objectives, data collection methods and design, the tabulation of results, and the analysis of the data. Appendices provide a sample completed survey, the survey statistics and frequencies by school type, and the EUI (Energy Use Index) ranking of all schools. (Contains 35 references.) (GR)
Energy Efficient Florida Educational Facilities Phase VI. Progress Report: Phase I and II by Michael P Callahan( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Florida study examined differences in energy uses in two adjacent portable classrooms to determine if these types of facilities can be made more energy efficient through retrofitting. Retrofitting included an efficient lighting system, new air conditioners, and reflective white metal roofs. Data show the white metal roofing reduced roof, decking, and attic temperatures significantly. The newer air conditioning system (Bard 2.5 ton HVAC unit) had a much higher ventilation rate than the old air conditioning unit and achieved energy savings of approximately 45 percent. The T8 lamp-electronic ballast system that replaced the old T12 system provided energy savings of 20 percent with an average increase in brightness of 4 percent.

FLASTAR Florida Alliance for Saving Taxes and Energy Resources. Final Report by John R Sherwin( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of the Florida Public Building Loan Concept pilot program determined its effectiveness in helping to upgrade building energy systems. The pilot program, termed FLASTAR (Florida Alliance for Saving Taxes and Resources), involved the comprehensive metering of an elementary school to demonstrate energy savings potential after retrofitting the facility with new chillers and sensor controls for classroom and office lighting. Data show the chiller upgrade had resulted in a 30 percent reduction to cooling energy use. Sensor controls failed to achieve energy savings and actually increased lighting energy usage. An energy management system (EMS) was added that provided direct digital control (DDC) of the school chillers, air handlers, and packaged direct expansion (DX) roof-top systems. The EMS reduced chiller energy use by an additional 16 percent, and air handling and DX system energy consumption by 30 percent. Project retrofits achieved overall energy savings of approximately 15 percent or 120,000 kWh per year resulting in annual energy savings of $4,600. An appendix provides important project dates.
