<b>SB 2030 Standard</b><br>47 kBtu/sf/year <b>As Designed</b><br>46.33 kBtu/sf/year
This graph shows the project’s energy use intensity (EUI), measured in kilo (1,000) British Thermal Units per square foot per year (kBtu/sf/year). It shows the project-specific SB 2030 Energy Standard, the predicted EUI from the project’s energy model, and the actual annual EUI from meter readings (if available).
Energy Strategies
Envelope / Insulation
  • Glazing with SHGC Under 0.4
  • R-30 to R-40 Wall Insulation (for Opaque Walls)
  • Window / Glazing U-Factor under 0.25
HVAC
  • 93% or Greater Unit Heaters Efficiency
  • Carbon Dioxide Occupancy Sensors
  • Economizer
  • Energy Recovery System (Including Heat Recovery)
  • Variable Speed Drives
Lighting
  • LED Lighting
  • Provide Daylighting Through Side Windows
  • Provide Daylighting Through Skylights
  • Reduced Lighting Power Density
