ƒ SSPC 90.1 responsible for our energy targets


ƒ Standard 90.1 IS NOT the foundation for
meeting Vision 2020 or NZEB
ƒ AEDGs are mechanism for NZEB
ƒ Promote EUI as measurement

• Alternate Performance Methodologies


ƒ Determine “base minimum” using whole
building designs
ƒ Explore regional utility rates
ƒ Explore time/demand rates
ƒ Consider water use and rates
ƒ Explore criteria metrics other than cost
savings (e.g. system efficiencies)
ƒ Address renewables (site based & grid based)
ƒ Use AEDG format for the 90.1 standard
