What You Need to Know about the New Energy Standard for Commercial Buildings: Standard 90.1-2016

ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1, the Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, has been a benchmark and national model code for commercial buildings for over 35 years and is indispensable for engineers and other professionals involved in the design of buildings and building their systems. Now, with many new addenda incorporated since the 2013 edition, Standard 90.1-2016 will significantly change the way buildings are built as these new modifications find their way into the world's energy codes.

This webinar highlighted some of the major changes that you can expect to see in building envelope, mechanical system and lighting requirements. In addition, the session will highlight Appendix G, a new compliance path that enables a single, simple performance-based option for both minimum code requirements and above-code programs. This session is for anyone who wants advanced insight into the new Standard’s expected impacts on the industry.
