Studying Vacant Buildings: Heitman at UC Davis

Studying Vacant Buildings: Heitman at UC Davis

Spring 2021 - ABT 212



This project aimed to analyze findings from energy audits of the Heitman Staff Learning Center and to uncover the causes behind the baseloads and energy usages during building vacancy periods, as well as make suggestions for improving energy conservation. Single-day data is analyzed to better understand peak usages throughout a 24-hour period, comparing weekdays to weekends. In addition, a week-long period is observed to better visualize the differences between weekdays and weekends. Energy conservation recommendations are made based on both specifics of the building and general common appliances that can be found in other buildings.
