ASHRAE/IES 90.1-2016

This energy standard provides a model energy code to jurisdictions interested in regulating the energy-efficient design of commercial buildings. The International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) recognizes 90.1 as an alternative compliance standard. ASHRAE recently published the 2016 version, which supersedes the 2013 version. The U.S. DOE recognizes the 2013 version as the national energy reference standard. Starting October 2016, all states must have an energy code in place at least as stringent as 90.1-2013 or justify why they cannot comply. A look at reveals 13 states are currently in compliance.
