Energy analysis programs are becoming more advanced and energy standards are becoming more stringent. This is driving more design teams to use a performance approach to comply with codes or to qualify for incentive and recognition programs. Each software application produces output in a different format and each code authority or energy program administrator requires that information be submitted in a different format. Energy modelers spend considerable time translating software results in to a suitable format for the program administrator.

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.
