ANSI EESCC Issues General Call For Input On Energy Efficiency Standards And Conformance Activities Relative To The Built Environment

Note: the EESCC Inventory is not collecting the standards or documents themselves, but rather relevant information regarding such documents that will assist in the development of the roadmap. Individual product and appliance standards are out of scope; however systems-related standards covering communications between appliances and equipment are within scope.

The roadmap will focus on five identified areas of need, addressed by a working group (WG) for each area:

  • WG1: Building energy and water assessment and performance standards (including diagnostic test procedures and health and safety testing)
  • WG2: Systems integration and systems communications(encompassing communications between building automation/operation systems and equipment/appliances, both within single buildings and across facilities)
  • WG3: Building energy modeling, rating, and labeling(includes whole building modeling, and rating and labeling for energy performance)
  • WG4: Evaluation, measurement, and verification(encompassing EM&V; energy performance metrics; and standardized and portable data collection and reporting)
  • WG5: Workforce credentialing(including standards for workforce training and certification programs, and workforce skills standards)

The EESCC working groups were formed in November 2012 [ see related article] and have been meeting regularly since December to begin the standards needs assessment and lay the strategic groundwork for their portion of the roadmap [ see related article].
