In order to meet the demand for increased levels of energy efficiency in commercial buildings, ASHRAE 90.1 is pursuing several novel ways to improve whole-building performance. This seminar explored several strategies that are expected to debut in the next edition of the Standard in 2022; on-site renewable energy, envelope thermal bridging, advanced HVAC metrics and an envelope back-stop. After a brief presentation on each topic, the panel of presenters answered questions and sought feedback from the audience on these and other strategies that 90.1 should be considering.
This was the seventh event in the 2020 Building Energy Code Webinar Series.
