ATLANTA — ASHRAE has announced a new web application that automates the calculations needed to show a building project’s compliance with Standard 90.1-2010.

The 90.1 ECB web application is a tool for modeling compliance with ANSI/ASHRAE/IES 90.1-2010, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, using the Energy Cost Budget (ECB) method in the standard.

“The application allows users to input project parameters and then calculate the proposed design’s projected performance and compliance, with the results exportable in a workable spreadsheet for project use,” said Drake Erbe, chair of the Standard 90.1 committee.

The application is accessible from a desktop, tablet, or other device. It allows users to store project information in one place for easy reference and comparison.

The app is free of charge to users. To learn more, visit
