International. ASHRAE opened a new online portal that facilitates construction professionals access to the set of resources related to the 90.1 Standard - Energy Standard for buildings, except for low-rise residential buildings.

"The ASHRAE 90.1 standard is used globally as an industry benchmark to establish minimum energy performance standards and energy codes," says Drake Erbe, chairman of ASHRAE's 90.1 standard committee. "Bringing all 90.1-related resources together in one place will allow construction professionals to focus more on delivering energy efficiency requirements, knowing they have access to the most up-to-date information on the 90.1 Standard."

The features of the portal include:

  • An online multiple publication tool that allows users to view each publication side by side or separately, as well as copy, paste, print or annotate the content as necessary.
  • The ability to see the official interpretations of ASHRAE in the context where they matter.
  • Access the Standard 90.1 User Manual, which provides detailed instructions for designing commercial and high-rise residential buildings to ensure standard compliance. The user manual also includes measurements and calculations in both IP and SI units, sample calculations, application examples, forms to demonstrate compliance and references to resources and related websites.
  • A redlined version of the 90.1 standard that shows the changes that were made since the previous edition.

Users can visit the website www.ashrae.org/901portal to configure login credentials and access the portal. Once inside, users can customize their experience to access the updated resources of the 90.1 Standard in a consolidated location.
