ATLANTA, GA — The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers’ (ASHRAE’s) energy conservation Standard 90.1-1999, “Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings,” will be included in the 2001 version of the International Energy Conservation Code.

Standard 90.1-1999 was approved for inclusion in the code by the International Code Council (ICC), comprised of the International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO), Building Officials and Code Administrators (BOCA), and the Southern Building Code Congress International (SBCCI).

The code is a model that may be adopted by code jurisdictions in the United States and internationally.

“The inclusion of Standard 90.1-1999 by the ICC recognizes the incorporation of new technologies, increased energy savings, and easier use over the 1989 standard,” ASHRAE president James Wolf said. “The application of Standard 90.1 in local building codes will result in significant site (where fuel is used) energy savings and source (where fuel is produced) energy savings.”
