The original AEDG
prototypes were designed to be in compliance with ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.
These journals joined Estudos de Gestao (published by the Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestao), Gestao e Desenvolvimento (published by the Universidade Catolica Portuguesa-Viseu) and Revista Portuguesa de Gestao (formerly Revista de Gestao, published by AEDG
, see above) as the main publishing outlets in the field of organization and management studies.
The objective of this project is to compare Energy Utilization Indices (EUIs; site energy use per unit area per year), normalized based on standard hours of operation and plug load energy use, for a sample of small office and K-12 school buildings designed in accordance with the first (30%) ASHRAE AEDGs
to the modeled EUIs of small office and K-12 school buildings in the same climate zone that meet the requirements of ASHRAE Standard 90.
2% as implemented in the base-case model to 7% of the total roof area as recommended in the technical support document for the AEDG

The 50% AEDG
for Medium to Big Box Retail Buildings recently completed the first peer review.
The first of these volumes, the 50% AEDG
for Small and Medium Office Buildings has now been printed.
ASHRAE intends to initiate an AEDG
series to achieve 50% savings targeted for completion between 2011 through 2012; and plans are under way for an AEDG
series to achieve net zero energy buildings, targeted for completion between 2013 and 2016 (subject to funding).
My thanks and compliments to the AEDG
steering committee and to all of the guide project teams for a great job, well done.
