DOE Proposes a National Commercial Building Asset Rating Program

The U.S. Department of Energy is seeking your feedback on a proposed voluntary national Asset Rating Program for Commercial Buildings (AR Program). DOE has issued a Request for Information (RFI) to gather public feedback by September 22, 2011 on key issues associated with the development of an AR Program.

Through the AR Program, DOE intends to establish a building Asset Rating system that can be broadly applied to both new and existing commercial buildings, and provide affordable and reliable information to building stakeholders. The AR Program will inform building owners about the energy efficiency of their building systems, enabling comparison of the energy performance between buildings while controlling for differences in building operations and occupant behavior. The AR Program will also help building owners identify opportunities for energy efficiency improvements.

    THIS IS SOMETHING WE SHOULD HAVE HAD YEARS AGO.
    INEFFICIENT BUILDINGS / FACILITIES USE UP 30-40 PERCENT OF ALL THE OIL WE IMPORT EVERY YR.
    THE ISSUE OF REAL TIME INTEL FOR ANY BUILDING IS PRECISELY WHAT FIRST RESPONDERS AS WELL AS OWNERS AND OCCUPANTS REQUIRE.
    I HAVE RECENTLY FILED A COMPREHENSIVE PATENT FOR AN IBMS ( INTEGRATED BUILDING MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS )THAT COVERS THE BROADER RANGE OF INFORMATION AND RESPONSE ISSUES AND INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGIES / TELEMETRICS NECESSARY TO RENDER ANY FACILITY SAFER AND MORE EFFICIENT. I THINK MOST PROFESSIONALS KNOW; THAT WITH THE PROPER STRUCTURAL RATING SYSTEM (PART OF PATENT ) FEWER LIVES WOULD HAVE BEEN LOST AT THE WTC.
