Enhanced Tools for Residential Building Analysis in the Pacific Northwest

Abstract

This project will develop and demonstrate tools for analysis of energy use in residential buildings, which
are tailored for the Pacific Northwest. One tool will help the user identify cost-optimal packages of
efficiency improvements for residences. Another will enable regional analysis by calibrating BEopt
to results of a recent assessment of the Northwest residential building stock. Successful completion of
this project will result in sophisticated and easy-touse tools that can be used by conservation program
staff at BPA to quickly identify least-cost efficiency measures for targeted residential markets.
