GLRPPR Sector Resource: Energy Smart Tips for Ice Arenas

Energy Smart Tips for Ice Arenas

Many communities across the state of Illinois have ice arenas. By their nature, these buildings are large energy users requiring satisfaction of simultaneous heating and refrigeration loads in proximate space. One of the first tasks that SEDAC performs when analyzing a building is to benchmark (or compare) the building's energy usage intensity (EIU) to other buildings of similar use to assess how well the particular facility is performing.
