ASHRAE updates energy audit guide
“As we work to reduce energy consumption in our commercial buildings, we want to ensure that recommendations are cost effective, technically feasible, maintain safety and comfort and result in significant energy savings,” said Jim Kelsey, an ASHRAE member who oversaw the writing of the updated publication. “This volume focuses on how to improve energy audit best practices. Providing the best audits that we can will help move the industry forward to net zero buildings.”
Additionally, the publication addresses how to build a successful team, analytical methods, successful approaches to site visits, incorporating on-site measurements, economic evaluation of measures and how to organize an energy audit report that promotes action on the part of building owners and managers. It includes several tips for conducting energy audits and reviewing results prepared by others.
