Course Title: Exceeding Standard 90.1-2013 to Meet LEED® Requirements
Sponsoring Organization: ASHRAE
Date: May 13, 2015
Course Description: This course explores how to obtain significant energy savings and obtain U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits by following the new, more stringent requirements of Standard 90.1-2013 and Appendix G rules and procedures. Appendix G is especially applicable to LEED credits and to U.S. energy tax credits. Standards 90.1-2010 and 90.1-2013 together produce almost 50 percent energy savings when compared to the 2004 version. So, by substantially surpassing Standard 2013 requirements, buildings should achieve more than 50 percent energy savings. This course uses eQUEST examples including live demos to present an overview by applying key 90.1-2013 requirements and Appendix G rules. This course is targeted at design professionals and building owners.
