The high-technology sector – characterized by facilities such as laboratories, cleanrooms, and data centers – is often where innovation first occurs. These facilities are sometimes referred to as the " racecars " of the buildings sector because new technologies and strategies to increase performance often trickle down to other building types. Although these(More)

Buildings with cleanrooms and laboratories are growing in terms of total floor area and energy intensity. This building type is common in institutions such as universities and in many industries such as microelectronics and biotechnology. These buildings, with high ventilation rates and special environmental considerations, consume from 4 to 100 times more(More)
Foreword Foreword Foreword Foreword This standard test method is developed by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), in collaboration with the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) of Taiwan and members of the Project Advisory Committee (PAC) for the high-performance building project supported by the California Energy Commission.

It is possible to choose the starting phase of a pure tone in a way that minimizes the onset noise when the tone is turned on abruptly. A spectral model shows that when the tone has a low frequency, minimum onset noise is expected for a starting phase of zero (turning on a sine tone) but when the tone has a high frequency, minimum onset noise is expected(More)
Energy information systems (real-time acquisition, analysis, and presentation of information from energy end-uses) in commercial buildings have demonstrated value as tools for improving energy efficiency and thermal comfort. These improvements include characterization through benchmarking, identification of retrofit opportunities, anomaly detection to(More)
