Why Less is More: Energy Efficiency Guidance from ASHRAE
This two-book set includes both Energy Efficiency Guides for Existing Commercial Buildings (EEG-EB). Although a part of the highly successful Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) series, the EEG-EB series concentrates solely on existing commercial buildings. The first in the series provided a business case for energy efficiency and was targeted to building owners and managers, and the second is aimed at providing technical guidance in undertaking existing building renovation programs.

Building Energy Assessment Professional Certification
ASHRAE has developed the Building Energy Assessment Professional (BEAP) certification program in collaboration with representatives from ASHRAE’s Building Energy Quotient (bEQ) program, IESNA, NIBS, SMACNA, and TABB.
The purpose of this program is to certify individuals’ ability to audit and analyze residential, commercial, and industrial buildings including determining project scope, collecting data, analyzing building performance, interpreting results, evaluating alternatives, submitting recommendations for energy conservation measures, and assisting with the implementation of these recommendations.
