A Design Guide for Energy-Efficient Research Laboratories
Part of the Labs21 Tool Kit
A Design Guide for Energy-Efficient Research Laboratories is a reference for facility owners, architects, engineers, designers, and managers to identify and apply advanced energy efficiency features in laboratories. Addressing architectural programming, system sizing, commissioning, and specific sub-system efficiency, the guide focuses on laboratory energy design issues with a "systems" design approach where the "building" is the essential system. The guide pulls information from direct facilities engineering experience and an extensive literature search of more than 230 research papers, conference proceedings, design texts, case studies, recommended practices, and manufacturers' experience.
