Online Tech Session

Getting from AEDGs to Zero-Energy Buildings: AIA (Crawley06) GBCI (0920020231)
Drury Crawley, Ph.D.

Buildings account for more than 40% of worldwide primary energy use. ASHRAE, IESNA, USGBC, AIA, and DOE have collaborated on a series of Advanced Energy Design Guides (AEDGs) for significant energy savings beyond Standard 90.1. The guides provide prescriptive packages for each climate zone to reach the energy savings goals of 30% and 50%. AEDGs for 50% savings in five building types were completed in 2014. This presentation provides an overview of the AEDG process as well as examples of packages and case studies from the 50% guides. Also presented are examples of today’s zero-energy buildings and the key systems and technologies they employ.
