SaveNRG.org is an Organization of Green Building Professionals in the process of developing a new Energy Efficiency Standard and Rating System. This new rating system will promote technical advancements in Energy Efficiency. It is based on the Overall Building Efficiency Formula inserted below. Overall Building Efficiency is a field based measurement over a 6 month time frame that calculates the Overall Efficiency of the installed products. It takes into account the performance of the HVAC System (Including renewables like Solar and Geothermal), HRV System, Building Envelop, Windows, Air Infiltration Systems and more. Any efficiency improvements made to any component increases the rating or efficiency number. While most point based systems penalize those that invent and innovate improvements.

The world's top scientists and the United Nations stand united in their belief that this earth is warming and humans are the cause. They are calling for stiff measures to reduce global warming. CO2 emissions is a huge part of global warming. It is our goal to reduce co2 emissions and save people money in fuel bills. We are concentrating our efforts on home and commercial Building systems.


Energy Efficiency is the most cost effective way to reduce co2. It is not only important to just install green building systems; it is the way in which these systems get installed that count. Many systems do not deliver to the expectations they were designed for. Proper design is very important to co2 reduction. In many cases the price of the installed systems will be equal but one way will dramatically reduce fuel consumption. When you give someone a choice that greatly reduces fuel costs at no extra charge they will do it. That is why this project will have a significant reduction in fuel consumption. We are at the beginning stages of technological development for green systems. What is most needed is to encourage technical development. Back in the 1980ís a room full of very expensive computer hardware had less capability then my 11 year olds IPOD. I have a plan to solve this problem. It involves field measurement and verification of installed systems. It involves a comparison of one installed system to another and finally it involves rewards and Press for the ones that succeed. The details of the best designs will be published. New categories will be developed for different types of systems and a new rating system will be developed. Revolutionary designs that perform well will receive special attention. Together over the decades we will improve system designs and the testing methods.

Whatís New

1)      The project has changed from just measuring Heating Systems to measuring entire Building System Efficiency.

2)      The competition will be less emphasized.

3)      The main focus will now be on developing a new Energy Efficiency Standard or ratings for buildings based on the formula. A data base and software package will be developed for Auditors and Designers. Certification will be developed for the Auditors and Designers.

Papers on Overall Efficiency

  (A measurement of overall efficiency in a Building system.)

I have developed a mathematical formula that measures the Overall Efficiency of a Building. The project is covered by a patent. US Patent 7200468 The project will improve the efficiency of Building system design and reduce global warming in building systems worldwide by 10 to 80%.

Here are two papers you can read on the project. Overall Efficiency and School of Heating/Cooling Efficiency
