Government Energy Audit Compliance
EMAT Program is committed to actively implementing industry standard technologies to further increase energy auditing efficiency, capability, and performance through technical collaboration and integration. We remain actively aware of Federal, state and local government mandates for energy auditing technologies and reporting standards.
The following are examples of technologies and government standards that are being adopted by EMAT:
- FEMP/NREL Initiative – The Federal Energy Management Program/National Renewable Energy Laboratory initiative promotes energy efficiency, renewable energy and water conservation. They assist Federal Government agencies in complying with energy mandates and standardizing the reporting methods necessary.
- BEDES – Building Energy Data Exchange Specification is an energy term driven dictionary to aid information exchange. This is a standardization of energy audit terms, definitions & field formats.
- BuildingSync® – Software developers can use this standardized language to help exchange commercial building energy audit data between audit tools.
- Asset Score – The U.S. Department of Energy has developed a “Building Energy Asset Score” as a standardized tool to assess commercial & multi-family buildings for energy efficiency both physically and structurally.
- ASHRAE Standard 211 – The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE) has developed a standard practices guide for conducting and reporting commercial building energy audits.
The EMAT energy audit team has thoroughly reviewed these standards and are implementing them within our program.
