The 50% Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) series follows six volumes of award winning 30% guides. The AEDGs are the result of a partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy, ASHRAE, the American Institute of Architects, the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America and the U.S. Green Building Council. The next group of publications will provide guidance on achieving 50% savings over ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2004. The first guide in the new series, 50% AEDG for Small to Medium Office Buildings, is currently available for free download.
This event provided an overview of the 50% series and outlined recommendations for energy savings in both small and medium office buildings.
