Total Energy Management: A Practical Handbook on Energy Conservation and Management. For Use of Owners and Managers of Office Buildings and Small Retail Stores. 2nd Edition.
National Electrical Contractors Association, Washington, DC.; National Electrical Manufacturers Association, Washington, DC.
Described in this guide for owners and managers of office buildings and small retail stores, is a program entitled Total Energy Management (TEM). The TEM program approach rests on the premise that buildings should be examined in terms of total energy consumption, rather than prescribing energy budgets for a building's separate systems. The program's ultimate objective is to bring all systems to peak efficiency and maintain that efficiency through continuing management efforts. Presented are chapters on building analysis, energy audit procedures, guidelines for energy conservation, financial evaluation, and plan implementation. Also included are TEM worksheets and references on energy management. (Author/WB)
