Plug into Energy Savings: Strategies and Resources for Reducing Plug Load Energy Use in Your Buildings

Plug and process loads become a larger piece of the building energy pie as the low hanging fruits of energy efficiency, such as lighting retrofits, are harvested. This webinar included a discussion by NREL on simple low-cost and portable plug and process loads interventions. Stanford University shared its successes in creating a plug load inventory, analysis and action plan to reduce associated energy consumption. The General Services Administration presented one of its marquee projects of the federal government leading by example highlighting strategies for reducing plug and process loads in an historic zero energy building retrofit.
