Title: Energy Price Indices and Discount Factors for Life-Cycle Cost Analysis - April 2010: Annual Supplement to NIST Handbook 135 and NBS Special Publication 709
Published: May 15, 2010
Abstract: This is the April 2010 edition of energy price indices and discount factors for performing life-cycle cost analyses of energy and water conservation and renewable energy projects in federal facilities. It will be effective from April 1, 2010 to March 31, 2011. This publication supports the federal life-cycle costing methodology described in 10 CFR 436A and OMB Circular A-94 by updating the energy price projections and discount factors that are described, explained, and illustrated in NIST Handbook 135 (HB 135, Life-Cycle Costing Manual for the Federal Energy Management Program.) It supports private-sector life-cycle cost analysis by updating the energy price indices that are described, explained, and illustrated in NBS Special Publication 709 (SP 709).
