ASHRAE 90.1 Efficiency Improvement - Improving demand-side energy efficiency:

 Energy demand management, also known as demand-side management, is the modification of consumer demand for energy through various methods such as efficient operation, financial incentives and behavioral change through education.

Recent modeling funded by ASHRAE and the U.S. Department of Energy estimated that buildings following the 2013 version will save, on average, 38 percent of their whole building energy cost compared to those complying with the 2004 version.


Improving demand-side energy efficiency by focusing on smart Operation and Maintenance programs:

  • Staff Engagement and training

  • Buildings

  • Guidance/codes: ASHRAE 90.1 and 170, Advanced energy design guides, DOE Retrofit guides

  • Process Team driven ,Metric based,LEAN,6 Sigma, Quick wins,3 or 4 initiatives at a time, Pilot projects on major changes, Risk-taking

  • Systems: Air, Lighting, Hydronic, Building Automation

  • Equipment, maintenance program aligned with Energy efficiency
