Award Description: Strategic Implementation of Energy Efficiency Improvements in Public Buildings This activity is a program under which City of West Hollywood Consultants will improve the energy efficiency of two City owned buildings. 1. Benchmark Energy Performance ? The Consultant and/or City will begin by establishing an account in EPA?s Portfolio Manager tool and will collect key building and operational characteristics and energy use data to assess and understand the current energy performance of City Hall and West Hollywood Park City. 2. Efficiency Improvements - Drawing upon industry guidance, such as EPA?s ENERGY STAR Building Upgrade Manual, ENERGY STAR Product Procurement Guidance, DOE?s Commercial Buildings Energy Efficient Building Practices, staff will implement efficiency improvements to lighting systems and HVAC systems at the designated locations as required to gain maximum energy efficiency and reduction in green house gas emissions. 3. Track Progress over Time ? Facility staff will track progress in Portfolio Manager and monitor variations in energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions. 4. Verify and Document Results?Portfolio Manager will be used to provide a level of transparency and accountability by generating performance indicators, including energy use intensity, energy efficiency improvement over a baseline, EPA?s Performance Rating (where applicable), and greenhouse gas emissions associated with building energy use. At the end of the project period, this information will be used to report energy use and greenhouse gas reduction results back to DOE. This program will create sustained energy savings and job creation through design, manufacturing and installation of the recommended retrofits. A substantial reduction in Green House Gas Emissions will be realized as well reducing the carbon footprint for the City of West Hollywood.
