Energy Issues and Policies
- DOA/DSF Energy Use Policy
This policy is intended to reduce the use of fossil fuels in state owned facilities without adversely affecting program operations. Building users, managers, physical plant staff and designers share the responsibility for achieving this goal.
- DSF Project Energy Design Guidelines
This guideline is intended to reduce the use of fossil fuels in state owned facilities without adversely affecting program operations. Recognizing that the greatest cost of owning state facilities over their lifetime is the cost of energy to heat, cool, light and operate them, DSF expects the design of every project to:
- Achieve the highest energy efficiency and lowest energy consumption that life-cycle costing will justify;
- Incorporate the most energy-efficient materials, products, equipment and systems consistent with program and budget;
- Incorporate renewable energy technologies at the earliest possible stages of design whenever they are technically and economically feasible;
- Consider the impact on the utility infrastructure of the existing building/institution.
- DSF Daylighting Standards
These guidelines are intended to lower cooling loads, reduce electrical energy for lighting as well as improve human health and performance. Achieving these results requires a design approach integrating mechanical engineering, lighting design and architecture from the very beginning. Eight prioritized strategies form the foundation of this simple approach to daylighting.
- DSF Lighting Design Guidelines
Item 14 in this document (Electrical Design Guidelines) discusses guidelines for indoor and outdoor lighting systems to be used in State-owned buildings and facilities.
- DSF Photovoltaic System Funding Guidelines
This guideline establishes economic criteria to assist agencies in determining funding options for photovoltaic projects.
- Energy Use in State-Owned Facilities - FY 2010
This report presents the total energy consumption for the largest State of Wisconsin owned and operated facilities. These facilities account for the majority of energy consumed in buildings owned by the State of Wisconsin. This report is formated to print as a two sided document.
