New publication provides energy efficiency guidance for warehouses.

The latest publication in the Advanced Energy Design Guide series will help guide the construction of warehouses using off-the-shelf technology that can cut energy use 30 percent or more annually.

The Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small Warehouses and Self-Storage Buildings, published by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, gives guidance to architects, engineers and others on building design teams on how to use best design practices to create energy-saving warehouses. Written in partnership with The American Institute of Architects, the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America, the U.S. Green Building Council, and the U.S. Department of Energy, the book is available for free in electronic form at

Hard copies are available for purchase in the ASHRAE Bookstore through the same Web page. The Metal Buildings Manufacturers Association (MBMA) contributed to the book's authorship.

The book, intended for use by contractors, designers and owners of small warehouse buildings, covers an integrated design process for delivering energy efficient warehouses as well as sets of prescriptive requirements for efficient warehouses in each climate zone. Case studies of exemplary warehouse designs are also provided, as well as detailed "how-to" design guidance to help guide construction teams.

Recommendations cover the subject areas of building envelope, lighting and daylighting, HVAC and service water heating.

"The Guide provides a clear, straightforward prescriptive path to meeting the 30% target savings," says Ron Jarnagin, chair of the committee that wrote the publication.

The cost of the print version of Advanced Energy Design Guide for Warehouses and Self-Storage Buildings is $59 ($47 members).
