This course explores how to obtain significant energy savings and obtain LEED credits by following the new, more stringent requirements of Standard 90.1-2010 and 2013, and using Appendix G rules and procedures. Appendix G is especially applicable to LEED credits and to US energy tax credits. Standard 90.1-2010 is used directly in the new LEED V4. 90.1- 2010 and 2013 together produce almost 50% energy savings from the 2004 version. So, by substantially surpassing Standard 2013 requirements, buildings should achieve well over 50% energy savings. This course uses OpenStudio/EnergyPlus examples, including live demos and hands on exercises in OpenStudio, to present an overview of applying key 90.1-2010/2013 requirements and Appendix G rules. This course is targeted at design professionals and building owners.
