Equipment Energy Efficiency Committee (E3). 1 Preamble The cost of supplying energy to the office space has historically been insignificant compared to the cost of labour. A study on a typical American office (Holz et al. 1997) found the cost of salaries to be 100 times more than that of energy. In Singapore, the electrical consumption of offices accounts for 12 % of the overall non-manufacturing sector’s usage, with an average annual energy efficiency of 231 kWh/m2 (Lee 2001).

8 °C. On the other hand, we have the adaptive model of defining thermal comfort (see Brager and de Dear 1998, for a primer) which can be attributed to Auliciems (1969) and extensive field studies by Humphreys and Nicol (Humphreys 1995; Humphreys and Nicol 2004; Nicol et al. 1995; Nicol and Pagliano 2007; Nicol and Humphreys 2009). They found that compound indices failed to predict accurately the comfort temperature for free-running buildings and a simple regression of outdoor temperatures was a far more reliable gauge.

22) ‘‘Acceptability’’ also presents a different definition in both models. The general rule is that it refers to ‘‘combinations of indoor space environment and personal factors that will produce thermal environmental conditions acceptable to 80 % or more of the occupants within a space’’ (ASHRAE 55 1992). Acceptability varies depending on the nature of data collection. 5 is acceptable even though that corresponds to PPD = 10 %. This allows for an additional average 10 % that may arise from local discomfort.
