This seminar is targeted at design professionals, code officials and building owners. ASHRAE Standards 90.1-1989, 90.1-1999, and 90.1-2001 have been the benchmarks for commercial building energy codes in the United States and a key basis for standards in more than 15 countries around the world. The 2004 version of Standard 90.1 included significant changes from the previous versions, such as reducing the number of climate zones from 26 to 8, refining a number of HVAC provisions, improving stringency of lighting power requirements, and adding an appendix with new, more flexible rules when using 90.1 for LEED certification. This course presents an overview of the 2004 standard, the addenda that are added in the 2007 version, the Standard’s requirements, and methods for compliance.
