Ashrae 90.1..?

Hi Miklos,

Am I correct in undertstanding that ED* will provide analysis to Ashrae 90.1 (2007)..?

If I am, may I suggest that for the final version Graphisoft look to implementing assessment to Ashrae 90.1 (2010).

The 2010 version of Ashrae is now the adopted code compliant version here in Vancouver, Canada and also I believe in Ontario, Canada.

I also understand that all US states must adopt the 2010 version by the end of 2013... see http://www.buildingsmartalliance.org/index.php/cc/news/Entry/doe-ashrae-reference

For the extent of current adoption of Ashrae 90.1 (2010) in the US, please see here http://www.energycodes.gov/status-state-energy-code-adoption.

Would be a shame to launch and then find that ED* was a bit out of date already and miss out on the requirements of the market.

Kind Regards,

Adam

Hi Adam,

Thanks for the links and the useful comment!

To be honest, it's kind of disappointing for us that by the time we're finally approaching the finish line of our development marathon, the organizers are about to move it another 5 kilometers further away. Still, we've run 42 kilometers already, so that 5 extra should come naturally...

On a more serious note - 90.1-2007 is the development milestone that's a prerequisite of product release. Naturally, we'll keep on working on the upgrades to keep the software up-to-date.

Best Regards,
