This Advanced Energy Design Guide is for typical hotels found along highways having up to 80 rooms, generally four stories or less, that use unitary heating and air-conditioning equipment, which represent a significant amount of commercial hotel space in the U.S. Application of the recommendations in the Guide should result in hotels with 30% energy savings when compared to those same hotels designed to the minimum requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings.

This guide explains the benefits and process of building commissioning thereby providing owners and other stakeholders a tool to improve building efficiency and operation. It is intended to be a resource, as well as a call to action, for building owners and facility managers who want to verify their buildings are not only operating as originally intended, but also as efficiently as possible. Commissioning of new construction and major renovations is the primary focus, although commissioning of existing buildings is also briefly discussed as well.
This guide provides an overview of the different energy audit options available and information on how to select an energy auditor.
This document is part of the Best Practices for Laboratories for the 21st Century Handbook and focuses on energy recovery for laboratories. It applies to both federal and private sector facilities.
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for K-12 School Buildings is the second in a series of Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) publications designed to provide strategies and recommendations for achieving 50% energy savings over the minimum code requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings.
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for Medium to Big Box Retail Buildings is designed to provide recommendations to achieve 50% energy savings for retail buildings 20,000 to 100,000 ft2. Energy costs are typically the second-highest operating expense for a retailer, so use of this guide can help in creating a cost-effective design for new retail buildings and major renovations that will consume substantially less energy compared to the minimum code-compliant design and that will result in lower operating costs.
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for Large Hospitals shows that existing reliable technologies and design philosophies can be used to reduce energy use in large hospitals by up to 50% of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004 recommendations.
Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small to Medium Office Buildings is the first in a series of Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) publications designed to provide recommendations to achieve 50% energy savings when compared with the minimum code requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (ASHRAE 2004). This guide applies to small to medium size office buildings with gross floor areas up to 100,000 ft2.
