A predominant use study is a type of study that analyzes how energy is used in a building or facility. The purpose of this study is to determine the percentage of energy used for different purposes, such as lighting, heating, cooling, and other equipment, and to identify opportunities for energy efficiency improvements.

Energy and Engineering
The study involves collecting data on energy consumption, such as electricity and natural gas usage, and analyzing this data to determine how much energy is used for each purpose. This information is helpful for building owners and managers to identify areas where energy efficiency improvements can be made, such as upgrading lighting systems or improving the efficiency of heating and cooling system.

Predominant use studies are important for several reasons:

  • They can help building owners and managers identify ways to reduce energy consumption and save money on energy costs.
  • They can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts associated with energy consumption.
  • They are required by local or state regulations, such as energy disclosure laws or building codes that require certain levels of energy efficiency.
