Capital is measured in physical unit, while labour is measured in efficiency unit
Given the institutional and policy variables held constant along the R curve, an increase in the steady-state capital stock per efficiency unit
of labour raises the incentive to perform R&D through a "scale effect.
This has implications for the social welfare function and the accumulation equations for capital and debt in efficiency units
Also, all variables are divided by labor in efficiency units
Chiller plant support equipment, the water pumps and cooling towers, can also use the same reciprocal efficiency units
of kW/ton (kWe/kWt) by letting the tons (kWt) produced by the chiller be the common normalizing parameter for the power used by all chiller plant equipment.
Rent caps are established for apartments ranging in size from efficiency units
to five-bedroom units.
Improvements include: upgrade lighting in common areas and apartments with compact fluorescent lighting, replacing refrigerators with ENERGY STAR[R] labeled units, replacing old or inefficient heating systems with high efficiency units
, improving ventilation, installing carbon monoxide detectors, water-saving devices, and windows and doors.
In previous studies, the approach has been to convert labor inputs into common efficiency units
by multiplying physical inputs (hours worked or number of employees) by an index based on such factors as years of education (and possibly some demographic attributes).
8 million renovation, which includes nine efficiency units
, 28 one-bedroom units, and one manager's unit, will provide Prairie Village residents with a repaired entrance gate, fencing system, and parking lot, as well as upgraded lighting and landscaping, and new:
The apartment mix will consist of one bedroom/one bath, two bedroom/two bath, three bedroom/three bath, and four bedroom/four bath as well as deluxe efficiency units
In addition, about half (49%) say they've replaced their windows with more energy-efficient models, and similar numbers report having replaced their HVAC or furnace (51%), added insulation (49%), and replaced appliances with higher efficiency units
Plus, with the lowest outdoor sound level as low as 81 dBA, up to 11 dBA quieter than competing units,* Energence ultra-high efficiency units
can potentially help eliminate costs associated with reducing sound within a building.
