Project Title 
Advanced Retrofit of Modular Classroom
Project Number 
Investor Owned Utilities 
Whole Building
Project Year(s) 
2014 - 2016

This project will assess the performance of different energy efficient technologies such as DC/solid state lighting, high efficiency HVAC, upgraded insulation, and controls for portable classrooms, a market that is currently untapped. An existing classroom will be retrofitted with all EE technologies listed above to serve as a control classroom and the second classroom will receive all EE technologies plus the ES and PV to realize deep EE and potentially ZNE capability within the building. This approach will enable the verification of energy savings potential and overall classroom environment benefits of bundling these end uses. The results from both classrooms will be evaluated to gain insight about the impacts of installing PV and energy storage on an energy efficient building as well as the benefits of a simple EE retrofit to an existing portable classroom.
