RESEM: Retrofit Energy Savings Estimation Model Reference Manual - Version 1.00

Publication Type




RESEM, the Retrofit Energy Savings Estimation Model, is a PC-based tool that will allow Department of Energy (DOE) Institutional Conservation Program (ICP) staff and participants to reliably determine the energy savings directly caused by ICP-supported retrofit measures implemented in a building. RESEM incorporates several innovative techniques into an interactive tool designed to ease completion of this demanding analytical task. For maximum accuracy and validity, energy savings are calculated directly from actual utility data, with sophisticated corrections for weather and use variations between the pre-retrofit and post-retrofit utility data collection periods.
