TECHNICAL PRESENTATION TO THE IEEE ORLANDO EXCOM

Date:

Tuesday, Aug. 3rd

Time:

6:30 - 7:00 p.m.

Place:

Louie & Maria Restaurant
9728 E. Colonial Dr., 407-277-7755

Topic:

Energy Performance-Metrics in the Federal ENERGY STAR® Program

Speaker:

Julio Rovi, Senior Associate at Cadmus

Abstract:

In an effort to reduce greenhouse gases and energy waste, two federal agencies-DOE and EPA-teamed up to support ENERGY STAR. Although ENERGY STAR builds from work from both agencies, DOE focuses on primarily on appliance performance and EPA focuses on the performance of homes, commercial buildings and other products. This presentation provides an overview of ENERGY STAR, its products and services and described how ENERGY STAR evolved from a focus on "energy efficiency" to "energy performance", moving the market away from "energy conservation". Special attention will be placed on what makes buildings more energy efficient and how this is measured. Attention is also placed on how energy performance was defined for office equipment and some industrial electronics
