New York -- Cost-Effectiveness and Impact Analysis of Adoption of Standard 90.1-2007 for New York State
The state of New York requested that the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Building Energy Codes Program (BECP) provide an analysis of the impacts of adoption of ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007. New York State is unique among states in requiring a ten-year payback for energy code measures. BECP based this analysis on the results of a nationwide, state-by-state code comparison for DOE. This analysis indicates that the adoption of ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 is cost-effective under New York’s requirements for all buildings in New York.
