This subcommittee was formed as part of a concerted effort by the RTF to increase emphasis on on whole building energy efficiency. As energy efficiency programs seek deeper savings, they are exploring approaches that focus on the energy use of the building as a whole, rather than taking an end use by end use approach and this subcommittee intends to support that work.
Two work products have come out of this effort, a commercial whole building white paper and an industrial SEM guidance document, and the subcommittee have been essential contributors and reviewers to both. Both documents are linked below and you can find more information on each, including presentations and background on the Whole Building Efforts webpage.
