We are certifying a small retail store that is almost 5 percent of the total building area. The retail store shares a chilled water plant with the rest of the building. Do I have to model the entire building to estimate the amount of energy that need to be generated by the renewable source? If this is the case, how can I calculate the apportionment of the common areas and the energy related to the HVAC system just in the small retail?
