CASE STUDY ON THE EFFECTS OF ENERGY INTERCHANGE AMONG BUILDINGS

The results of a case study are presented focusing on efforts to conserve energy in an existing cityblock by physically connecting a number of existing buildings with pipes and cables and aCogeneration System (CGS), and then exchange energy among the buildings using the CGS andexisting heat source equipment. Essentially, the proposed system levels-out and reduces variation inthe combined inter-building energy load among the buildings with a variety of energy use profiles.
