Abstract : This report describes the development of methods for estimating building energy consumption based on analysis of weather and energy use data. Equations are presented for estimating Army facilities' energy consumption based on daily heating and cooling de gree days. The results of the regression analysis indicated that these equations can be used to estimate energy consumption for aggregates of 10 or more buildings. The equations are useful for all types of Army buildings. Time series analysis of facilities' electrical energy consumption is also described. This analysis provides the Facilities Engineer with a basis for estimating daily electric energy consumption and a methodology for using accurate short-term electrical metering to estimate daily average electrical consumption.
