Share This

Course Length: 3 hours

The 2013 update of Standard 90.1 Energy Standard for Buildings is a major revision, containing more than 100 changes from the 2010 version. Together, Standards 90.1-2010 and 90.1-2013 produce almost 40% energy savings from the 2004 version. By substantially surpassing the Standard 2013 requirements, buildings should achieve well over 40% energy savings.

Standard 90.1-2010 and 90.1-2013 together produce almost 40% energy savings from the 2004 version, with the envelope and lighting requirements contributing substantially to these reductions. This course focuses on the importance of the recent changes in the lighting and envelope requirements and how they reduce loads on the HVAC systems and on overall energy use. Topics include the significant new mandatory requirements for air barriers and daylighting.

The U.S. Department of Energy issued a ruling that establishes Standard 90.1-2013 Energy Standard for Buildings as the commercial building reference standard for state building energy codes. The 2013 update of Standard 90.1 contains 8.5% source energy savings, 7.6% site energy savings, and more than 100 changes from the 2010 version.
This course is highly interactive and includes several in-class exercises with problems that participants can solve individually or in teams. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their laptops. This course is targeted at design professionals, code officials and building owners.
