UVA Building Energy Performance Requirements

The University of Virginia Building Energy Performance Requirements outline UVA’s energy performance requirements for all new construction and major renovations projects. This document outlines maximum allowable building energy use metrics, methodologies for calculation, and rationale for their development. The energy requirements presented herein were developed to meet the requirements outlined in the UVA Green Building Standards (i.e., UVA Facility Design Guidelines, Appendix G). The University of Virginia Energy Modeling and Reporting Standards provide additional information on expectations for developing project-specific energy performance estimates.
