Building Energy Simulation Forum: Understanding building infrastructure and energy efficiency


The Building Energy Asset Score Tool, developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy, is a whole-building energy efficiency rating system that focuses on the design of a building’s physical characteristics. The online modeling tool has a simple user interface, using EnergyPlus to collect data about the building and generate an asset score and system evaluation for the building’s envelope and mechanical and lighting systems. The tool also identifies cost-effective upgrade opportunities and provides insight into the energy-efficiency potential of the building.

This presentation will provide a brief overview of the Asset Score Tool and detail results for some of the thousand buildings assessed using the tool. The presentation also includes a live demonstration, showing the process of entering data into the tool and generating an asset dcore report.
