Energy Design Guide Series Advances Energy Savings
May 25, 2010

A series of guides written by leading building organizations to advance energy efficiency are positively impacting the building industry, according to a new assessment commissioned by The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

The market assessment, which focused on ASHRAE members’ use of the guides, determined that the Advanced Energy Design Guide series is in line with their objective of achieving 30 percent energy savings over the minimum code requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings.

The guides have been developed in collaboration with these partnering organizations: the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES), the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The guides are available as free downloads at
