(Formerly Exceeding Standard 90.1)
This course is targeted at design professionals and building owners. Appendix G, an informative appendix in Standard 90.1, provides specific guidance on the rules and procedures to use to simulate building energy use when the objective is to substantially exceed the requirements of the Standard. Appendix G is especially useful for energy simulations connected with LEED credits and with U.S. energy tax credits. The 2010 update marks a major change to the Standard with a goal of saving 30% more energy than the 2004 version. This course presents an overview of Appendix G and explains its use through a number of examples using eQUEST.
