Energy Conservation in New Building Design: An Impact Assessment of ASHRAE Standard 90-75. Conservation and Environment Buildings Programs. Conservation Number 43B.
Federal Energy Administration, Washington, DC.; American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers, New York, NY.
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), has developed a document governing energy usage in all types of new construction: ASHRAE Standard 90-75: Energy Conservation in New Building Design (ASHRAE 90). To lay the foundation for an evaluation of ASHRAE 90, the Federal Energy Administration (FEA) retained Arthur D. Little, Inc. (ADL), to investigate the potential energy and economic impact the standard would have on the nation's construction industry. It was the intent of the study to quantify those impacts in the energy and economic sectors as well as possible, and to qualitatively assess their impact in the institutional sector. Within the report are many findings, observations, and recommendations concerning ASHRAE 90's effect on building energy consumption, its influences on physical changes in the buildings, its implications on the owning and operating costs of buildings, its potential impact on the nation's energy consumption in construction, its possible economic impact in several selected markets and participants within the construction sector, and its impact on building habitability.
