The Guide

This design guide for research laboratories compiles information from an extensive literature search of more than 350 research papers, conference proceedings, design texts, case studies, recommended practice, and manufacturers' experience. We gathered additional information from the practicing engineering community; and from energy systems specialists, including scientists and in-house energy managers at the United States Department of Energy's Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). The In-House Energy Management (IHEM) section at LBNL has implemented more than $14 million worth of energy-efficiency retrofit projects and contributed to the design of numerous, new laboratory facilities.
