Energy Load

The combined value of all energy costs for a single asset (or all the assets combined) in a building that are forecast over one of the following time periods:

Energy load is typically expressed in current year dollars (CV) but may also be calculated in future years dollars (FV).

For example:

  • Gas consumption of a domestic boiler.
  • Electrical consumption of the fluorescent lighting in a parkade.

When the energy load is combined with the capital load and the operating load of the owners can estimate their total cost of ownership.
