This document published in 2015 was the eleventh of the Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG
meet the need for a large number of projects where project budgets and design professionals might be in short supply.
This is the third book in a series of four AEDG
publications that provides recommendations to achieve 50% energy savings when compared with the minimum code requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings.
The original AEDG
prototypes were designed to be in compliance with ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (ASHRAE 1999).
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 90.1-1999.
This value was obtained from the AEDG
for medium to big box retail buildings (AEDG
2011) and the technical support document for the AEDG
for small warehouse and self-storage buildings (Liu et al.
does not disclose what energy rates were used in the simulations, but since $0.0939/kWh for electricity is used by the Standard 90.1 committee for their work, it is assumed that the AEDG
uses the same rate.
VAV System Parameters The VAV system in the building was designed to perform better than the AEDG
recommendations are shown in parentheses and the building VAV design parameters are shown after.
He is an author of the AEDGs
for small hospitals and healthcare facilities and for large hospitals; and is a member of SSPC 189.1.
The 50% AEDG
for K-12 Buildings is on track for download availability in September 2011.
