  • Saving Energy In Existing Residential Buildings | Richard Leigh, P.E. & Eduardo Guerra | Snapshot Column | the Sallan Foundation
    replacing the inefficient oil fired boilers that were heating the building and providing hot water Because the fuel was 2 oil rather than gas a conversion to condensing boilers was not practical but the new boiler was substantially more efficient They also recommended insulating many exposed hot water pipes and adding weather stripping to the exterior doors Electric measures were limited to replacing common area lighting with efficient T 8 bulbs and electronic ballasts and fixing a photosensor controlling the outdoor lighting Installation proceeded without major problems Examination of the fuel and electric bills a year after completion showed spectacular success in reducing fuel use the audit had projected a reduction of 12 and the bills showed a drop of 33 There is no certain way to ascribe these savings to one measure or another and all contributed to some degree However the 58 of fuel used for heating dropped by 26 while the remainder baseload hot water use dropped by 46 so the hot water pipe insulation likely played a major role Boiler replacement would have contributed to both of these areas while our inspection revealed that the weather stripping had been compromised by a door replacement For electric use the audit had projected an 18 decrease in the common areas but examination of the bills revealed only a 5 drop One reason was immediately apparent at the annual inspection at the insistence of a coop Board member CFLs in lobby chandeliers had been replaced by incandescent bulbs This however would have only lowered the projected savings to 15 not 5 Since the lighting was the only electricity measure implemented and it seemed to be operating correctly some unrelated increase in electric use is suspected but could not be found at the time Even ascribing the weak electric savings to poor performance by the electric measure rather than unrelated changes the project was a marked financial success The annual dollar savings to the coop were more than double what had been projected in the audit bringing a simple payback of 4 6 years If we could offer these savings to all buildings energy efficiency would expand like cell phone use And a Loser Sometimes it doesn t pay to get out of bed in the morning This thirty four unit coop is located in an economically depressed part of Brooklyn and is managed by a local non profit The auditor recommended a standard list of upgrades including an energy management system EMS a new burner on the boiler insulation and weather sealing He also recommended a substantial list of needed repairs to the roof windows and distribution system and in the apartments Energy Star refrigerators and CFLs The job was completed in about a year and came in substantially under budget However the one year examination of the bills revealed a disaster Fuel use predicted to drop by 58 had actually increased by 47 The inspection provided a host of explanations for this extraordinary finding First the building had

    for a clear destination or end point For example if we approached cell phone innovation so linearly we wouldn t have achieved the level of mobile device innovation that we see in the world today With respect to Con Edison s challenge to provide enough electricity to future customers most of them in New York City Smart hopes innovation comes swiftly New York City s electricity demand is projected to skyrocket over the next few years all thanks to the growth of window air conditioners The City has 6 1 million window air conditioners and expects to add 1 million more over the next 5 years Con Edison is often asked about how they will adapt to the increased demand on the grid from EVs being charged at night Smart s response is I m much more concerned about window air conditioners than electric cars While utilities need to be thinking about how EV infrastructure will affect electricity demand night time charging fortunately will pull electricity from the grid at a time when demand is the lowest Mei Shibata co Founder and Chief Strategy Officer from ThinkEco spoke about how her company works to increase energy efficiency of plugged in devices with their outlet cover called the Modlet Shibata feels that New York City has been a great locale in which to launch an energy efficiency start up The company has been piloting the devices in partnership with Con Edison around New York City this past summer Shibata and Think Eco have found that in rolling out the Modlet if the discussion focuses less on energy efficiency and more on empowering consumers in how they re able to use energy in their lives this drives people to become more interested and encourages adoption Allen Freifeld Senior Vice President External Affairs
