Energy Use Evaluation of a Building with Recommendations for Energy Use Reduction

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

 

you find Powerpoint  presentation in the attachment and complete this assignment
MAIN OBJECTIVES OF THE ASSESSMENT:

To provide knowledge and awareness of energy audit techniques and analysis for buildings according to current UK regulations and guidelines with recommendations for energy use improvements

Written report with a length of maximum 2500 words, 1.5 line spacing (approximately 10 single sided A4 pages – to include everything such as diagrams, table of contents, reference list). The report should also include a title page, an executive summary and should be bound securely. Attach the PPT of your oral presentation as an appendix to the written report (this is in addition to the maximum length of the written report).

Students are asked to carry out an energy evaluation of the Howell Building at the Uxbridge campus, Brunel University. Students are provided with construction details of the external building fabric, IR images, DEC certificates for four years and historic energy use (electricity and gas) of the building. Students are asked to carry out an analysis of the data provided and propose pragmatic improvements to the energy use of the building in terms of energy use reduction and improved environmental conditions for occupants. Presentation of recommendations using Marginal Abatement Cost (MAC) curves is suggested.

LEARNING OUTCOMES FOR THE ASSESSMENT
Demonstrate an understanding of main elements of relevant energy management and audit methods and current legislation.
Use energy analysis methods to examine the energy use of the building.
Show an ability to analyse data to provide recommendations for improvement in the energy use of buildings.
Present results concisely in an oral presentation and a written report
ASSESSMENT CRITERIA 
The marking criteria for the written report are the following:
1. Oral Presentation – 20%
2. Description of current legislation for energy management, obligations, incentives and benefits for businesses – 10%.
3. Description of the examined building and its energy use – 20%
4. Analysis and discussion of results of energy use for the examined building – 30%
5. Recommendations for energy use reduction; these should be the result of calculations to consider energy use and associated costs (for example through the use of Marginal Abatement Costs Curves) – 20%
