This project will perform energy simulations for 220 UMD buildings to establish an energy use intensity target for each building. A database of building characteristics including enclosure properties, mechanical system types, and schedules for all of UMD buildings will be created. Further, these building characteristics will be inputs into energy models for every building, and the model results will form a basis of target energy use. Such a database will allow for setting ambitious but realistic target goals for the energy efficiency of buildings at UMD.
