PERFORMANCE-BASED INCENTIVE PROGRAM FOR NEW BUILDINGS : REPORT FROM THE FIELD
Maria Karpman, Mike Karpman, Shelley Beaulieu, Tom Rooney, Dan Cogan
This paper discusses a large scale incentive program for new multifamily buildings in New York, funded by NYSERDA. The program followed a performance- based approach that involved energy modeling, was aligned with the EPA?’s ENERGY STAR® Multifamily High Rise Pilot, and had simulation requirements similar to LEED NC. The paper discusses the key aspects of program design and focuses on challenges associated with running a highly technical incentive program. It provides an overview of approaches used by the implementation team to ensure that model predictions translated into actual savings, and concludes with recommendations and lessons learned.
