ASHRAE Columbus September Event

Topic: The Impact of the Ohio Board of Building Standards adopting ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010.

The Ohio Board of Building Standards (OBBS) is currently in the process of upgrading the commercial building energy code from ASHRAE Std. 90.1-2007 to Std. 90.1-2010 with a projected effective date of Jan. 1, 2017. ASHRAE developed Std. 90.1-2010 with a targeted 30% energy savings relative to Std. 90.1-2004. In order to achieve this level of energy savings 109 addenda that were approved and incorporated into the standard that affect the mandatory and prescriptive requirements in Chapters 5 through 10. Energy savings are achieved with 60% of the addenda while the remaining have no energy impact since they deal with editorial issues: updates to references, improves clarification, fix known errata, reorganize tables, etc.  The presentation will review the major changes in each of the key sections of the standard and explain the analysis procedure used to determine whether the 30% savings were achieved. In addition to the changes incorporated by ASHRAE the OBBS further modified the standard with changes in computer rooms/data centers and roofing projects and deleted sections dealing with circulating pump controls and automatic receptacle control. This overview will summarize the impact that Std. 90.1-2010 will require for all new commercial building designs.
