Aug. 22, 2006: ASHRAE Updates Existing Buildings Energy Standard

ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has updated its standard on energy conservation in existing buildings, designed to help owners maximize efficiency by improving operation, maintenance, and energy monitoring.

ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 100-2006, Energy Conservation in Existing Buildings, was updated to bring it in line with other ASHRAE guidance, specifically ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, and the ASHRAE Handbook, HVAC Applications.

"Energy-saving practices for operation, maintenance and monitoring are essential for achieving sustainability in existing buildings," said Robert Fuller, vice chair of the Standard 100 committee. "It is important to ASHRAE and our members that we continue to provide stringent requirements for energy efficiency, and updating this standard helps us continue to be leaders in sustainability."

Other changes incorporated in Standard 100-2006 include updated requirements for compliance that allow for newer technology, such as more efficient lighting, that has been made available since the last update, and a revised bibliography to reflect current documents and new publications.

The cost of Standard 100-2006 is $33 ($26, ASHRAE member). To order a copy of the standard, contact ASHRAE Customer Service at 800-527-4723 (United States and Canada) or 404-636-8400 (worldwide), fax 404-321-5478, by mail at 1791 Tullie Circle NE, Atlanta, GA 30329, or visit the ASHRAE online bookstore at www.ashrae.org.
