Abstract:

This version OBSOLETE -- see current NISTIR 85-3272-15 (April 2000) This is the April 1997 edition of energy price indices and discount factors for performing life-cycle cost analyses of energy and water conservation and renewable energy projects in federal facilities. It will be effective from April 1, 1997 to March 31, 1998. This publication supports the federal life-cycle costing methodology by updating the energy price projections and discount factors that are described, explained, and illustrated in NIST Handbook 135 (HB 135, "Life-Cycle Costing Manual for the Federal Energy Management Program"). It supports private-sector life-cycle cost analysis by updating the energy price indices that are described, explained, and illustrated in NBS Special Publication 709 (SP 709). It also supports the Energy Conservation Mandatory Performance Standards for New Federal Residential Buildings (10 CFR 435) by providing a table of factors for updating appliance label values.
