A study on energy performance, on LCA, and life cost analysis on PV/T-water collectors [97] Thus, the heat extraction from PV modules results in cost-effective solar devices, with positively impacted environmental performance, compared with standard PV modules.

This must be addressed on rehabilitation projects. An energy ____ is a comprehensive review of a facilities energy use and report on ways to reduce the energy use through changes to buildings, equipment and procedures." Audit "______ control is the organization and management of commonly used parts, vendors, supplies and purchasing records in the preventive maintenance system.".

The design standards used should be based on the project work type (see PDM App. 5, Table ). The basis for applying the standards to the project should be stated.

Guidance on establishing standards is available in NYSDOT HDM Chapters 2, 4, or 7, and/or the NYSDOT Bridge Manual, Section 2 as applicable. Critical Design Elements. This book develops a specific viewpoint in discussing the participants, the processes and the techniques of project management for construction.

This viewpoint is that of owners who desire completion of projects in a timely, cost effective fashion. Both source energy use and life-cycle cost are accounted for in the optimization procedure to design or retrofit buildings. In addition to the optimization techniques, general guidelines are provided to select the most cost-effective energy efficiency measures suitable to improve the energy performance of residential and commercial buildings.
