3.9.4 Other Gas Use

This set of building descriptors should be used to include any miscellaneous gas use that would add to the load of the building and would be on the building meter. These energy uses are assumed to be outside the building envelope and do not contribute heat gain to any thermal zone.

Other Gas Power

Applicability

All buildings that have commercial gas equipment

Definition

Gas power is the peak power which is modified by the schedule (see below).

Units

Btu/h-ft²

Input Restrictions

As designed

Baseline Rules

Same as the proposed design

 

Other Gas Schedule

Applicability

All buildings that have commercial gas equipment

Definition

The schedule of operation for commercial gas equipment. This is used to convert gas power to energy use.

Units

Data structure: schedule, fractional

Input Restrictions

Continuous operation is prescribed.

Baseline Rules

Same as the proposed design

Building EQ

This set of building descriptors should be used to include any miscellaneous gas use that would add to the load of the building and would be on the building meter. These energy uses are assumed to be outside the building envelope and do not contribute heat gain to any thermal block.
