Sections 3.4.5 and 3.4.8 of the COMNET modeling guidelines have been updated to be consistent with the ENERGY STAR Multi-Family Highrise Simulation Guidelines, Version 1.0, Revision 03, January 2015, pages 23-35.
In early August 2016, COMNET launched a new website. This is the first major reorganization of the website in more than five years. The changes are described in the following bullets:
The new performance rating method contained in Appendix G of Standard 90.1-2016 fixes the baseline and introduces a new performance metric called Performance Cost Index (PCI). The procedure can be used for beyond-code recognition and/or incentive programs and may be used to show compliance with the 2016 Standard as well as previous versions. Come and see how this new procedure is implemented in the COMNET modeling guidelines and discuss how it will affect energy programs that depend on energy modeling. This discussion will be led by Charles Eley.
An informal session is scheduled to discuss COMNET and how it can benefit software developers, energy modelers, and energy program administrators. The event is scheduled from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM on August 18, 2014 and is part of the ACEEE 2014 Summer Study in Pacific Grove, CA.
Version 1.0 of the COMNET XML schema for simulation outputs is now available for use. Software developers are encouraged to use this schema that is freely available on this website to provide a standard interface for electronic exchange of building energy simulation outputs. Regulating authorities that require simulations for green ratings, incentive programs, or compliance checks are similarly encouraged to use this schema.
