Exceeding Standard 90.1-2016 to Meet LEED® Requirements

Share This

Course Length: 3 hours

This course explores how to obtain significant energy savings and obtain LEED credits by following the new, more stringent requirements of Standard 90.1-2016, and using Appendix G rules and procedures. Appendix G is especially applicable to LEED credits and to U.S. energy tax credits. Standards 90.1-2013 and 90.1-2016 together produce almost 50% energy savings from the 2010 version. So, by substantially surpassing Standard 2016 requirements, buildings should achieve well over 50% energy savings. This course uses eQUEST examples, including live demos, to present an overview of applying key 90.1-2016 requirements and Appendix G rules. This course is targeted at design professionals and building owners.
