Since 2002, ASHRAE, the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), USGBC, and AIA, with support from the Department of Energy, have collaborated on a series of Advanced Energy Design Guides (AEDGs) that would result in significant energy savings in the built environment beyond what is expected by using only ASHRAE Standard 90.1. The AEDG series of documents is now one of the most popular publications in ASHRAE’s history with over 600,000 copies in circulation.

This program will review a brief history of the AEDG Series, and then focus on the newest group in the AEDG series – Achieving Zero Energy. The first volume in this new series is for Zero Energy K-12 School Building Design, and the program will highlight the major steps and integrated, systematic approach for achieving Zero Energy in schools.
