A proposed joint standard from ASHRAE and Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) that establishes consistent practices for conducting and reporting energy audits is open for a 45-day American National Standards Institute (ANSI) public review.
Standard 211P defines the procedures required to perform ASHRAE Level 1, 2, and 3 Energy Audits, and provide a common scope of work for these audit levels for use by building owners and others as well as establishes standardized industry practices and minimum reporting requirements for the results.
An initial Advisory Public Review (non-ANSI) of the standard that closed in December 2015 resulted in more than 600 comments from some 100 people. ASHRAE/ACCA Standard 211P, Standard for Commercial Building Energy Audits, is open for comments from Aug. 5 until Sept. 19, 2016. To comment, visit www.ashrae.org/publicreviews.
