Energy Efficiency Measures

The first consideration before attempting a DG building integration is to maximize the efficiency in the building’s energy demand or load. Designers should minimize the electricity and thermal load by utilizing energy-efficiency design strategies such as building envelope improvements, day lighting techniques, and natural ventilation applications. Furthermore, installing energy-efficient lighting and cooling equipment throughout the building minimizes energy loads.

Common strategies for implementing EEM include the following:
