Your Name Your title and organization
E NERGY -10 Design Tool ENERGY - 10 to provide a tool that a designer will use routinely to guide his or her decisions while developing the design of low- energy building. Eventually all buildings will be designed to be delightful living, working, and learning environments, enhanced by natural light, requiring minimum resources to build and operate, –and that do not impair the environment for following generations. This library, built in 1980, has saved about 39 billion Btu (about $740,000) over its 20 years operation, compared to a typical library. It cost no more to build and gets rave reviews from the librarians and users.
E NERGY -10 Design Tool ENERGY - 10 E NERGY -10 is suitable for smaller buildings– commercial and institutional buildings under 10,000 sq. ft. – and also residential <10,000 sq 76% of all non-residential buildings are under 10,000 sq. ft., representing 22 % of the total built floor area and 26% of the energy use. This restriction will be removed in Version 2
