    SB 1149 School Audit Format

    Oregon Office of Energy

    Enclosed is the energy study report format for SB 1149 School audits. The study instructions (Appendices A, B, C, D, and E) should be examined thoroughly before undertaking analysis efforts. This format will:

     Clearly define energy study requirements so energy saving opportunities can be appropriately


     Clarify what is expected in a technical analysis and how the findings need to be reported. As

    expectations are clearly defined, analysts can be more effective at producing studies of high

    quality that result in minimal clarification time or rework.

     Ensure reasonable calculation methods are used to predict achievable energy savings. The

    study addresses treatment of modeling interaction among Energy Efficiency Measures (EEMs),

    analysis for lighting EEMs, and cost estimating.

     Increase energy project cost effectiveness by minimizing study and program costs. A building

    with simple, straightforward efficiency measures will have fewer reporting requirements. Use

    of a consistent report format for all audits will expedite review by the Oregon Office of Energy.

Identify areas to increase staff efficiency.

     Allow flexibility, since each individual facility and its energy savings potential are different.

    Conducting Level I, Level II, or Level III audits will be determined by the Energy Use Index (EUI) calculation of the facility. All audits will use the following format, yet the level of detail will vary accordingly.

    Auditors will be required to input data summary reports into a statewide Internet accessible database to be established by the Oregon Office of Energy. The database format will follow a similar structure to the 1149 School Audit Forms.

    Note: The applicant and the energy analyst are responsible for completeness and clarity. Alternate formats that address all of sections of this report may be accepted if all required information is presented in a complete and concise manner with all supporting data and documentation.
