ASHRAE/USGBC/IES to Develop Biomass Requirements for Green Building Standard

ASHRAE Energy ManageThe development of biomass requirements is being explored by ASHRAE, the US Green Building Council (USGBC) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), for inclusion in their co-sponsored green building standard.

ASHRAE/IES/USGBC Standard 189.1 for the Design of High Performance Green Buildings, contains minimum requirements for the siting, design and construction of high-performance green buildings in support of reducing building energy, resource consumption and other environmental impacts. To that end, the standard contains requirements for the use of renewable energy systems such as solar, wind and geothermal, but does not include biomass from organic material, such as wood and crop waste, that can be burned to generate thermal energy.
