Topic:  ASHRAE Building Energy Quotient (bEQ)

ASHRAE has developed a comprehensive building energy labeling program called Building Energy Quotient (bEQ) to provide an analysis of a building’s energy consumption or energy features and allow comparison to similar buildings.  bEQ includes both an In-Operation rating,  based upon actual energy billings,  and an As-Designed rating that normalizes for operational variables to assess the efficacy of the building’s physical characteristics and energy using systems.   This presentation will describe the justification for developing the bEQ, will provide a comparison of the bEQ to existing benchmarking tools, will describe in detail each of the rating methods and will document the procedures by which the applicant can acquire a rating for a building.  The presentation also shows the documentation developed by the ratings procedures and demonstrates how they can be used to improve the energy efficiency of buildings.
