Large Hospital 50% Energy Savings: Technical Support Document

The Commercial Buildings Group at NREL developed this Technical Support Document under the direction of the U.S. Department of Energy Building Technologies Program. It documents the technical analysis performed and the resulting design guidance that will enable large hospitals to achieve whole-building energy savings of at least 50% over ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004. This report also documents in detail the modeling methods used to demonstrate that the design recommendations meet or exceed the 50% energy savings goal.
