    Food process loads account for 30 to 60% of energy use in restaurants and are significant loads in mixed use buildings. Techniques for estimating peak loads and energy- use budgets change as the design evolves from conceptual design to construction documents.  For many modelers, developing a food process baseline energy use profile can be difficult, much less evaluating how to model potential food process energy efficiency measures, within the time constraints of a project.  Due to the size of the process load, managing the estimate of food process energy within a reasonable level of uncertainty is important.  This presentation will provide insight into estimating methods as the design progresses and point to some publicly available tools to help refine estimates.
