This spreadsheet-based compliance form meets the documentation requirements of Standards 90.1-2016 and 2019 Section 11 Energy Cost Budget Method and Appendix G Performance Rating Method. It helps the modeler establish simulation inputs for the baseline/budget and proposed design models and includes a submittal checklist to ensure that all necessary supporting documentation is included in the submittal. It standardizes compliance documentations and simplifies submittal reviews by code officials and administrators of above code program implementers.

Zip file contains a blank compliance form and a sample project.

This report identifies focus areas for streamlining enforcement and ensuring consistency in compliance outcomes across different modelers and simulation tools. The short-term recommendations provided in this report focus on delivering tools and resources that would immediately improve compliance with the ASHRAE 90.1 Energy Cost Budget Method (ECB) and Performance Rating Method (PRM), which are the most commonly used performance-based protocols according to the stakeholder survey.

This document attempts to answer the following questions: What is the potential value of increasing compliance with the energy code and which code requirements should be emphasized during these studies? Ultimately, these are the questions that policy makers, funders, and program implementers care about. To answer them, a far more sophisticated approach is needed, one that addresses not only the question of value, but also the resource requirements to determine that value.

This file includes Phase III data collected for DOE's Residential Field Study.  Data is available for AL, GA, KY, MD, NC, PA, and TX.  No Phase III data was collected for Arkansas.  Data for Tennessee and Virginia was collected as a replacement for Arkansas Phase III, but that data will be made available in a separate file that includes other baseline data.

This guide provides information for anyone dealing with a lighting energy code or standard. It provides background and development information to help readers understand the basis for requirements and their intent. The guide also provides detailed explanations of the major types of requirements such that users can more effectively design to meet compliance while applying the most flexibility possible.

This guide provides an aid that will make it easier to apply the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) control requirements found in building energy codes and addresses requirements defined by 2009 and 2012 editions of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 and ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010.

This guide provides key information on energy codes tailored for architects and provides guidance on how they can support the adoption of new or updated energy codes and the resources needed to ensure compliance with what is adopted. The guide also includes information on the importance of architects in the development and compliance verification processes; information on the interface between codes and the design process; design and compliance tools; information on building construction and commissioning, and many other resources that are key to helping architects understand the important role energy codes through the design process play in addressing our energy, economic and environmental challenges.

This guide includes practical plan review and inspection resources, including the U.S. Department of Energy Building Energy Codes Program's REScheck™ and COMcheck™ quick reference guides, case studies, and sample inspection checklists; as well as excerpts from International Code Council's commentaries, workbooks, and code companion materials.

This collection also includes many other helpful items and points to further resources available on the web. Residential and commercial building officials can easily add state and local guidance in order to use this binder as a one-stop resource to support compliance in the field.
