Mayor Mike McGinn has announced a new approach to helping commercial electric utility customers in Seattle achieve energy savings. He introduced a three-year pilot project that will test an energy conservation concept known as “pay for performance.”
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) is seeking public input regarding the revision of an ASHRAE/IES standard addressing retrofit of existing residential and commercial buildings to achieve greater energy efficiency.
Public input is being sought on revisions to ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 100-2006, Energy Conservation in Existing Buildings. Last year, ASHRAE and IESNA announced they were revising the standard to provide greater guidance and a more comprehensive approach to the retrofit of existing buildings for increased energy efficiency.
