Performance Target: Can an ENERGY STAR MFHR building be modeled using ASHRAE 90.1-2013 Appendix G, as modified by Addendum bm? If yes, how is the Addendum applied? Follow

Projects in states that have adopted ASHRAE 90.1-2013, regardless of whether Addendum bm has been adopted by the state, can meet the ENERGY STAR MFHR Performance Target by demonstrating 15% savings above ASHRAE 90.1-2013 using the original Appendix G OR Appendix G from ASHRAE 90.1-2016. If the latter is used, projects must use the Simulation Guidelines_AppG2016 and Performance Path Calculator_AppG2016 to demonstrate compliance. Projects in any state may choose to use Appendix G from ASHRAE 90.1-2016 and the files above to meet their Performance Target, but only if using the 15% savings above code target. Projects that are using the 20% or 25% Performance Target Options are not able to use the 2016 approach. Read more about ENERGY STAR’s MFHR program requirements.
