1. Improving infiltration modeling in commercial building energy models
Published: 5/15/2015
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As building envelope performance and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly improved to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of the total energy loss of a building can occur through envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of u ...

2. Indoor Air Quality in High-Performing Building Case Studies: Got Data?
Published: 5/12/2015
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: In this paper, we review how indoor air quality (IAQ) has been addressed in case studies of high-performing buildings (HPBs), specifically the case studies described in ASHRAE‰s ,High Performing BuildingsŠ magazine. We find that nearly all of the re ...
