Proposed ASHRAE Standard for Energy Audits Open for Public Comment

09/01/2016 |

The 2015 review received 600 comments from approximately 100 people

ASHRAE and the ACCA have proposed a joint standard to promote consistent practices for performing and reporting energy audits and are opening it up to the public for a 45-day American National Standards Institute review. 

ASHRAE/ACCA Standard 211P, Standard for Commercial Building Energy Audits, 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 establish 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. 

The ASHRAE public review process is designed to allow anyone to comment on:

  • a standard that is being proposed, revised, or reaffirmed;
  • a proposed or revised guideline;
  • a proposed addendum to a standard; or
  • a proposed title, purpose, and scope for a standard or guideline that is being developed.

ASHRAE/ACCA Standard 211P, Standard for Commercial Building Energy Audits, is open for public comment until September 19, 2016. To give a suggestion or learn more, visit the ASHRAE Public Review Draft Standards.
