Getting from AEDGs to ZEBs

Buildings account for more than 40% of U.S. 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 four building types were completed in 2012. 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 employed.

All eleven AEDGs can be freely downloaded here
