Intent

Establish the minimum level of energy efficiency for the proposed building and systems.

Requirements

Design the building project to comply with both—

  • the mandatory provisions (Sections 5.4, 6.4, 7.4, 8.4, 9.4 and 10.4) of ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004; and
  • the prescriptive requirements (Sections 5.5, 6.5, 7.5 and 9.5) or performance requirements (Section 11) of ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004.

Finally, the project must establish an Energy Performance Rating goal for the facility design using EPA’s Target Finder rating tool.
