    ASHRAE Building Energy Quotient (bEQ)  (1 PDH)

    ASHRAE has implemented a comprehensive building energy labeling program called Building Energy Quotient (bEQ).  The objective of this labeling effort is to provide motivation for reducing energy use in commercial buildings by expressing the energy performance of buildings in a tangible way. The underlying belief is that public display and disclosure of the energy efficiency attributes of a building and its energy use intensity (EUI) will lead building owners to strongly consider cost effective energy efficiency improvements at the time of design and construction and in any subsequent renovations.  Public display and disclosure of energy efficiency attributes and EUI should be a relevant factor in the real estate transaction marketplace for commercial buildings.

    bEQ incorporates both an operational rating, based upon actual energy billing, and an asset rating that normalizes for operational variables.  The two rating systems will thus be able to communicate both the performance of he building as operated and the potential performance of the fixed assets of the building.

    This session will present the major ideas behind the development of the labeling program and the process for implementation.

    #1  How can building energy labels influence the energy efficiency of the overall building stock?

    #2  How the new ASHRAE bEQ is different from other labeling systems?

    #3   What metrics are most important for conveying the energy efficiency of a building?

    #4   What you need to do to get a bEQ label for your building.



    To attain accurate catering counts, please register for this event in advance. Day-of and on site registration will result in an increased cost of $20.
