Last week, ASHRAE published a press release announcing the creation of ASHRAE Standard 214P, Standard for Determining and Expressing Building Energy Performance in a Rating Program, to standardize building rating programs.

According to the article, the standard would establish requirements for:

  • Disclosure of building energy use via  a rating label and supporting summary documentation
  • Determining and expressing energy use, with metered data, of buildings and building sites that are in operation
  • Acceptable credentialing criteria for individuals applying the standard and reporting building energy use
  • Pre-occupancy (design) and post-occupancy (in operation) conditions
  • Format and content of the rating disclosure, the label and supporting documentation

“There are many entities that are rating buildings utilizing a number of different building rating systems yielding varying results,” Wayne Stoppelmoor, chair of the Standard 214P committee, said. 

“Feedback from government and regulatory agencies has shown there is an overwhelming need for a standard that provides uniformity in the building energy labeling and disclosure process. We want to provide a non-commercial consensus standard that can be used in international, national and regional legislation, policy making and regulation activities. The goal is to write a standard that provides guidance for establishing rating systems that produce meaningful and consistent results.”

The proposed standard is currently open for public comment until Sept. 28, 2015. To learn more or to comment, visit http://www.ashrae.org/publicreviews.
