What is the impact of geothermal heat exchange, air source heat pumps, and sanitary heat exchange on a cold climate multi-family high rise electrification while keeping costs low?
What is this graphic showing? Describe the different parts of the graphic and how it communicates the data.
The top portion of this graphic focus on the quantitative impacts of various electrification measures and system upgrades. The top left graph shows the additive impacts of the upgrades on EUI, gas, and electricity. The center graph shows annual EUI by end use. The right graph shows how EUI varies from month to month by end use. The bottom illustration demonstrates the HVAC system and the sanitary system loops within the building.
What type of graphic is this?
- Case Study / Multiple
- HVAC performance/system selection
Is this part of the ASHRAE-209 cycle?
What tools were used for the simulation analysis?
What tools did you use to create the graphic?
What was successful and/or unique about the graphic in how it communicates information?
The graphic relays both the top line metrics that developers are interested in seeing and goes further in depth to help educate the project team on how the systems they're selecting interact together and relate to the buidling's overall performance.
Is there anything else you would like to mention?
