The Advanced Energy Design Guide series from ASHRAE has been downloaded or purchased 500,000 times since it was first published in 2005. Courtesy: ASHRAESince being introduced 8 years ago to encourage energy-efficient design in a range of building types, the Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) series from ASHRAE and partnering organizations has hit the half-million circulation mark.

More than 500,000 copies of the books have been downloaded or purchased since first published in 2005. In 2008, ASHRAE began making the Advanced Energy Design Guide series available as a free download.

The books provide 30% and 50% energy savings when compared with the minimum code requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1: Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings.

The series was developed by a committee representing a diverse group of energy professionals drawn from ASHRAE, the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and the Dept. of Energy (DOE).

The 50% series includes books for large hospitals, medium to big box retail buildings, small to medium office buildings, and K-12 school buildings. The 30% series books targeting small office buildings, small retail buildings, K-12 school buildings, small warehouses and self-storage buildings, highway lodging, and small hospitals and health care facilities.
