ASHRAE 90.1 and Energy Modeling
The demand for energy modeling has increased over the years due to the adoption of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 into green building standards and green building rating systems. Engineers have been using building simulation software to calculate building load, compare different HVAC systems and control options, perform life cycle cost analysis as well as demonstrate compliance. This ENL will discuss how to model a proposed building against the baseline buildings according to ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix G Performance Rating Method. Common energy conservation measures will be implemented and potential energy savings discussed.
