Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (ANSI/ASHRAE 189.1-2009 )

Consuming 40 percent of the nation's energy, buildings represent the largest sector of primary energy consumption. High-performing green buildings should have a starring role in reducing the world's collective carbon footprint. But such buildings don't happen by themselves. You need the right project team, the dedication of the building owner, the right site and sustainable materials and of course you need the right technology and set of practices that will tie everything together to make the building a reality. That's where ASHRAE 189.1-2009 comes into play! ASHRAE and its partners have realized the need for this stnadard, and now is the time for you to realize that each of us have a role to play in transforming the marketplace as well. From site location to energy use to recycling, this standard will set the foundation for green buildings through its adoption into local codes. The purpose of this standard is to provide minimum requirements for the siting, design, construction, and plan for operation of high-performance green buildings to
(a) balance environmental responsibility, resource efficiency, occupant comfort and well being, and community sensitivity, and
(b) support the goal of development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
This standard provides minimum criteria that:
*Apply to the following elements of building projects:
1. new buildings and their systems.
2. new portions of buildings and their systems.
3. new systems and equipment in existing buildings.
*Address site sustainability, water use efficiency, energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality (IEQ), and the building's impact on the atmosphere, materials, and resources.
