- It has been estimated that as much as 60% of the energy used to heat, cool, and illuminate buildings could be saved through better design. Although energy standards provide a benchmark against which designers may measure their designs, compliance evaluation often requires tedious calculation. We are building a computer program, the Energy Standards Intelligent Design Tool (ES-IDT), that addresses these issues. The ES-IDT automatically and continually evaluates a building design as it is being developed on a CAD system. If the emerging design begins to deviate from compliance with ASHRAE Standard 90.1-1989, the ES-IDT notifies the architect, indicating which section of the standard was violated and what design decision(s) caused the violation. The ES-IDT also will suggest some design options to improve the energy efficiency of the building.
