CxEnergy 2020 Virtual Conducting Webinar on Key Changes in ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2019

Session will Highlight Commissioning and Comparisons to the current International Energy Efficiency Code

The popular CxEnergy 2020 Virtual webinar series will next examine the overhauled ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2019 which provides minimum requirements for energy efficient designs for buildings. The timely event includes an examination of the commissioning requirements for the new edition as well as comparisons to the current International Energy Efficiency Code. Many states apply ASHRAE 90.1 to buildings being constructed or under renovation and most apply it (or comparable standards) for all commercial buildings.

ASHRAE 90.1 Cx Requirement Changes and Comparison to the International Energy Efficiency Code

Thursday, June 11, 2020, 2:00 PM Eastern
Approved for 1 AIA LU

Register

CxEnergy Virtual is presented by the Energy Management Association (EMA), along with its affiliates the Associated Air Balance Council (AABC) and AABC Commissioning Group (ACG). ACG’s Certified Commissioning Authority (CxA) Certification comprises the world’s largest group of independent, certified commissioning professionals.

Abstract: ASHRAE Standard 90.1–Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings–was recently overhauled to clarify commissioning requirements for the 2019 edition. An important expansion of typical commissioning work is a review of the design for compliance with 90.1 requirements. The boundaries between a full commissioning project and items required in 90.1 will be explained. In addition, comparisons to the current version of the International Energy Efficiency Code will be made.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the commissioning requirements in ASHRAE Standard 90.1.
  2. List additional Cx items required by 90.1 not typically included in the Cx process.
  3. Note the differences between standard 90.1 and the IECC relative to Commissioning required by energy codes.
  4. Describe the difference between normative requirements and informative information in energy codes.

8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
$650 (includes application fee, workshop & exam)
Note: Individuals who are interested in CxA certification must submit a completed CxA Application in advance of the test date to get approved to take the CxA exam.
 

CxA certification is open to independent industry professionals who meet all education and experience prerequisites and implement commissioning processes in new and existing buildings.

The CxA exam is a four-hour, closed-book exam consisting of 130 multiple-choice questions. The exam tests candidates on elements of the commissioning process, as well as general understanding of building systems and how commissioning fits in with the construction process. ACG recommends that all candidates thoroughly study the ACG Commissioning Guideline to prepare for the exam. Other reference materials are also available. Individuals who are attending CxEnergy may also want to register to attend the Workshop as final preparation for the exam.

The Energy Management Process Seminar is designed to help candidates understand the energy management process and how it can be applied and serves as the final preparation for the Energy Management Professional (EMP) exam.

This program is based on the process described in the Energy Management Guideline. The detailed, phased process uses a data-driven approach and is designed to achieve maximum energy efficiency while ensuring optimal building performance. The Energy Management Professional (EMP) designation raises the bar for energy-related certifications. The EMP is a “master’s degree” for individuals who provide independent energy services and have not only a deep understanding of energy concepts, but also an intimate, hands-on understanding of how building systems operate.

COVID-19 Update

 

Dear CxEnergy attendees, ACG, EMA & AABC members:

After taking into account the current COVID-19 situation, continued hotel restrictions due to the virus, current registration numbers and, most importantly, feedback from our members and other potential attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors on their willingness to attend in-person, the ACG Board of Directors has made the decision to hold CxEnergy 2021 as a fully virtual event.

The Board did not make this decision lightly, holding biweekly discussions since November on the status of the conference. In the end, they concluded that because of the continuing uncertainty, pivoting now to a virtual event was the best decision. This will allow the event to take place during the month of April, while bringing the largest number of educational sessions to the greatest number of people.

Registration, including free access for members of ACG, EMA and ACG, will open soon. To see the complete virtual program, click here. Highlights of this year’s format include:

  • Two live virtual presentations each week during the month of April (Tuesdays & Thursdays).
  • A short virtual business session for ACG and EMA association updates.
  • 8 additional prerecorded technical sessions available to members and registered attendees, for a total of 16 hours of educational offerings.
  • A separate, dedicated “Technology Day,” designed to allow you to attend short, rapid-fire sessions with CxEnergy exhibitors over a period of a few hours, to keep up with their latest offerings in support of your commissioning, energy management, and testing businesses, as well as the opportunity to win a number of sponsored prizes.   

More information will be forthcoming soon. Please email info@commissioning.org with any questions. We hope that you are all staying safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you virtually again this year and then in person again, finally, in Orlando in 2022!

Sincerely,

ACG Headquarters Staff
