Energy Conservation; Buildings; Peak Demand


The Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) has the 2nd largest convention facility utilization in the nation. Two primary buildings provide about seven million square feet of conditioned space to approximately 1.5 million visitors per year. In efforts to reduce energy conservation, OCCC began implementing several energy conservation measures beginning in 2005 and continuing over the last 2 years with plans to continue additional efforts in the future. An analysis of monthly chilled water and electricity used by the West and North/South Buildings has been completed in an effort to investigate reductions in energy use resulting from conservation measures. This final project report discusses several recommendations and savings estimates related to future energy management projects. The final key component of this report discusses recommendations and specifications for an energy management system.
