Illinois -- Statewide Savings Projections from the Adoption of a Commercial Building Energy Code in Illinois

This study includes the impacts of adopting only the building envelope and lighting requirements of ASHRAE Standard 90.1-1999 and applying it only to new commercial construction. This report builds on a previous study that uses prototypical office, retail, and education buildings to estimate life-cycle cost savings estimates per square foot. Office, retail, and education buildings made up over 60% of the total value of new commercial construction in Illinois in 1997.
