Energy Saving Standard by ASHRAE 189.1

Friday, January 9, 2009

Developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Inc. (ASHRAE), the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), Proposed Standard 189.1 will provide minimum requirements for the design of high-performance new commercial buildings and major renovation projects. The standard addresses energy efficiency, a building's impact on the atmosphere, sustainable sites, water use efficiency, materials, resources and indoor environmental quality.

The speaker, Molly McGuire is a Mechanical Engineer with Tyler Engineering. Molly was on the task force developing the Standard with ASHRAE with focus on Indoor Air Quality, Energy and Atmosphere.

Participants will learn how the Standard differs from other energy efficiency standards and how the Voluntary Standard will help the move toward Net Zero Buildings. After this program, you will know the carbon dioxide equivalency and alternative compliance method, as well as how to address the other GHGs with the performance compliance method. Participants will understand the comparison to LEED, integration into the LEED program and the energy model supporting the energy efficiency requirements.
