Energy Management in Municipal Buildings.
Massachusetts State Dept. of Community Affairs, Boston. Energy Conservation Project.
This manual is written for the manager or supervisor responsible for instituting an energy management program for municipal buildings. An introduction discusses the management issues facing municipal government in dealing with the need to reduce energy consumption. The guide reviews methods for central coordination of activity to ensure that resources are wisely applied, that results are communicated, and that follow-up on findings takes place. It defines the techniques of preparation of the energy budget, of organizing and evaluating a building audit, and the management principles involved in selecting among alternative conservation measures to determine the combination most likely to be effective for a particular building. It discusses the human factors involved in changing wasteful practices of building users. A technical appendix provides detailed technical information and formulated work sheets for carrying out techniques presented in the text. (RE)
