Performance-based energy code compliance requires energy modeling and has not been the predominant compliance path for both commercial and residential buildings across the country. In the commercial sector, ASHRAE Standard 90.1 issued a new performance path called the Performance Rating Method (Appendix G) in 2016. However, in terms of compliance path chosen, performance-based compliance still represents a minority of projects. This webinar presented state-of-the-art tools and resources to address compliance barriers in implementing Appendix G in commercial buildings. It also highlighted how utility incentive programs and other above-code programs use Appendix G for their whole building performance-based program implementation.
This was the fourth event in the 2020 Building Energy Code Webinar Series
