NC-v4 EAc2: Optimize energy performance
March 14, 2019
Our design team want to propose economizers for our current manufacturing system to save energy cost from boilers. Can we claim this savings for our process energy (the process energy in the proposed design will be different from the baseline)?
Thanks in advance,

Yes you can, follow the exceptional calculation procedure. Break out the savings separately, explain how you determined the savings and provide a narrative explanation of the strategies employed and a justification for the baseline. In your case you will need to demonstrate that the strategy is not standard industry practice in your location.

Thank you Marcus for your advice.
How about thermal storage for chillers which to offset cooling peak load? Can we use the exceptional calculation procedure too?

If it is thermal storage for a process load then yes. If for space conditioning then you would not use the exceptional calculation method.

The energy cost offset from onsite renewable energy cannot be used to demonstrate compliance with the prerequisite. Can this cost offset still be credited to the proposed energy cost savings for this credit?
