What is the 2030 Challenge

Buildings currently are responsible for 48% of all energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

Ed Mazria, the AIA, the USGBC, ASHRAE, IES, DOE and others established the goal of making buildings Carbon Neutral by 2030.

They also established the goal that by 2010 all buildings should reduce their energy consumption by 50%.

To do this Mazria says all design tools should include a “performance feedback box” to show how close each design change gets toward that goal.

HEED (Home Energy Efficient Design)

Already Displays this Information

HEED calculates all the information needed for the 2010 goal.

HEED works for all kinds of homes or apartments or condos.

HEED works in over 1000 climates.

HEED does a fast, powerful hourly heat balance simulation.

HEED lets you design and compare up to 9 schemes at once

… and HEED is free


Slide4 l.jpg

HEED tries to have the most User-Friendly Graphic User Interface

  • You can draw in your own unique home,

  • You can click and drag windows to their correct locations

  • There is always a coherent building model which eliminates errors of omission/duplication

  • All results are presented graphically in plots and charts for easy comprehension

  • You can use HEED without special training


Slide5 l.jpg

Start by giving HEED these four Facts

Building Type:

Square Footage:

Number of Stories:

Zipcode or Location:

then click Next


Slide6 l.jpg

From this, HEED Creates Two Buildings:

Scheme 1 just Meets the California Energy Code

Scheme 2 is about 30% More Energy Efficient


Slide7 l.jpg

How HEED Calculates

  • It does an Hourly Heat Balance Calculation for all 8760 hours per year, similar to EnergyPlus

  • It runs a whole-building analysis, integrating loads and systems for a single zone building

  • It calculates hourly indoor air temperature

  • You can use EnergyPlus Weather (.epw) data for any of a thousand different cities

  • HEED lets you input your own local utility rates and your own local pollution data…

Slide9 l.jpg

In this example Scheme 9 includes:+ Long building Axis running east-west+ Better window Glazing and Orientation+ Energy Star Air Conditioner and Furnace+ Super Insulation+ Awnings on S and W windows in Summer+ Operable night window insulation+ High Mass stone fireplace+ Energy Star Appliances

… and reduces total ENERGY COSTS to $800.26 per year or 50% of Scheme 1


Or you can ask for site energy use in kbtu sq ft yr l.jpg

…or you can ask for Site Energy Use in kBTU/sq.ft.yr

kWhr are multiplied by 3.412 to get kBTU


Slide11 l.jpg

… and this final design for Scheme 9… reduces total SITE ENERGYto 27.51 kBTU/sq.ft.yr …or 58% of Scheme 1

Still not quite meeting the 50% per year goal


Slide12 l.jpg

How HEED Calculates CO2 Production

  • Buildings produce CO2 from two sources: on-site combustion of fuel and off-site generation of electricity in coal burning power plants or gas fired turbines

  • HEED calculates the Fuel burned on-site by Furnace, Water Heater, Ovens, and Dryers

  • HEED calculates the Electricity used for Lights, Air Conditioner, Fans, and Appliances (and sometimes Electric Heat Pumps or Furnaces, or Electric Water Heaters) converted to fuel equivalent at 3.412 BTUs per Watt.


Slide13 l.jpg

You can input data from your local Utility or EPA’s E-Grid Program in Pounds of Pollution for each type of Fuel

You can input data from your local Utility or EPA’s E-Grid Program in Pounds of Pollution for each Megawatt Hour

You can also see co2 data on the energy costs bar charts in pounds sq ft yr l.jpg

Slide18 l.jpg

… this final design for Scheme 9reduces total CO2 PRODUCTIONto 3.65 lbs/sq.ft.yr (7300 lbs/yr)…or 61.1% of Scheme 1

Still not quite meeting the 50% per year goal

Validation:

  • HEED has been validated against DOE-2 and others programs, using BESTEST (ASHRAE Standard 140)

  • HEED has been validated over four years using a pair of full-height test cells

  • HEED has been used to redesign multi-family housing units and field tests showed it predicted peak indoor temperatures to within one degree

  • Results are published and posted on our web site


Slide32 l.jpg

  • Scheme 1:

  • CODE MINIMUM DESIGN

  • Square floor plan

  • Equal area of glass on each wall

  • Windows tinted if required by code

  • No window shading

  • Stud and Stucco walls

  • Raised wood floor

  • .35 air changes per hour infiltration

  • Scheme 2:

  • ENERGY EFFICIENT DESIGN

  • Rectangular floor plan facing South

  • Most glass on South, least on E &W

  • Clear glass on South and North *

  • Overhangs shading South Windows

  • High mass walls, exterior insulation *

  • Slab on grade floor, carpet or tile *

  • Whole-house Fan, up to 10 air changes

  • * Depending on Climate

BOTH SCHEMES HAVE THE SAME:

Floor area, Window area, Climate, Occupancy Schedules
