{Past Event} - Design & Construction Series: Innovations in Energy Demand Reduction

June 12, 2009 - 1:00 pm - June 12, 2009 - 1:00 pm -- Eastern Standard Time


The first milestone in our quest for energy neutral buildings is reaching the 30% energy reduction goal that ASHRAE and DOE have set for the 2010 edition of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1. This goal is very close to matching the 2030 Challenge 50% goal. People attending this workshop will hear firsthand information from a member of the committee that is developing the 2010 standards for 90.1. You will gain a better understanding of the changes made in 2007 and what changes to expect in 2010. The trend is for the IECC to adopt ASHRAE requirements rapidly, so the information in this workshop will affect your designs very soon. This seminar concludes with things you can do now to exceed both the codes and the 30% goal.
