The business of performing energy audits has long lacked any regulation or standardization of approaches. What makes an energy audit acceptable, good, or great has been the subject of much discussion and debate. And what are considered best practices in the field has been akin to an oral tradition, where practitioners in the field pass knowledge and approaches from person to person.
Jim shares the results of the development of the first true industry standard, describes some of the contentious issues encountered, and summarizes what the energy auditing community agreed upon for the requirements of Level 1, 2 and 3 energy audits outlined in Standard 211.
