ASHRAE, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc., updated its standard on energy conservation in existing buildings, designed to help owners maximize efficiency by improving operation, maintenance and energy monitoring. ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 100-2006, Energy Conservation in Existing Buildings, was updated to bring it in line with other ASHRAE guidance, specifically ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, and the ASHRAE Handbook, HVAC Applications.

Other changes incorporated in Standard 100-2006 include updated requirements for compliance that allow for newer technology, such as more efficient lighting, that has been made available since the last update, and a revised bibliography to reflect current documents and new publications.
