Commercial Buildings and Energy Consumption

The Building Envelope Opportunity

35%

The building envelope (of which roofing is a major part) is involved in over 40% of commercial building energy consumption

Trillions of BTUs

5%

The Energy Efficiency Opportunity

Low Slope Commercial Roofing

Four billion square feet of new low-slope roofs are installed each year that can be designed and installed to reduce building energy consumption …

… provided these roofs are designed and installed to accomplish these goals.

The Energy Efficiency Opportunity

Low Slope Commercial Roofing

Multiple Strategies to Save Energy

Cool Roof Membranes To Reduce Solar Radiant Loads

Highly Efficient Insulation (R5 to R6 per inch) to Reduce Heat Transfer

Best Practices such as Multiple Insulation Layers w/ Staggered Joints To Minimize Energy Loss

Energy Scenarios

  • Base Case: ASHRAE 90.1 -1999

    • The current state (at best)

    • “Energy Standard for Buildings…”

    • Roofing “R” values unchanged since 1973

  • Scenario 1: ASHRAE 90.1-2007

    • The future state (if/when adopted by building codes)

    • 25% average increase in minimum “R” values

  • Scenario 2: ASHRAE 189.P (Proposed)

    • An alternative “green” future

    • “Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings…””

    • Additional 20% average increase in minimum roof “R” values

  • Annual energy costs based on 4 billion square feet of total annual roof installations, $0.12 / K WH cooling energy cost, $1.00 / therm heating energy cost, 2.0 cooling COP, and 75% heating efficiency. Assumes 20% of roofs are replacing existing cool roofs, 5% of roofs are installed over unheated spaces, and 20% of roofs are installed over non-cooled spaces. Calculations derived using the EnergyWise Calculator (http://energywise.specright.net) for gross heating and cooling costs and the DOE Cool Roof Calculator (http://www.ornl.gov/sci/roofs+walls/facts/CoolCalcEnergy.htm) for cool roof energy costs.

  • Actual R values vary +/- R5, depending on ASHRAE climatic zone.

  • A cool roof is defined as a roof offering 50% long-term solar reflectivity or the thermal equivalent for the service life of the roof.

  • Best practices is defined as 2 or more staggered insulation board layers to minimize thermal loss at board joints.
