(IS-2013-72) Achieving the 30% Goal: Energy and cost savings analysis of ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010
This project was conducted by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in support of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Building Energy Codes Program (BECP). DOE’s BECP supports the upgrading of the building energy codes and standards, and the states’ adoption, implementation, and enforcement of those codes and standards as they are incrementally upgraded. When the model energy codes and standards for buildings are being updated, BECP reviews the technical and economic basis of these documents. For commercial and multi-family high-rise residential buildings, which are the subject of this report, the basis for the energy codes is the ANSI/ASHRAE/IES1 Standard 90.1.
