IESVE Software is now officially approved by the Florida Building Commission as a code compliance software tool for the 2020 Florida Building Code, Energy Conservation, 7th Edition. IESVE 2021 utilizes the ASHRAE 90.1-2016 Appendix G Performance Rating Method as the compliance procedure.
Using the Navigator in IESVE, users can step through the process of creating the proposed building model with numerous energy conservation measure options, auto-generate the baseline building model, and auto-generate the required reports.
The Florida Building Code 7th Edition will be in effect from 01 January 2021. Previously, IESVE 2019 was approved for the Florida Building Code 6th Edition (2017) with the 90.1-2013 Section 11 (Energy Cost Budget). For the 7th edition, the 90.1-2016 Appendix G Performance Rating Method (PRM) is used in IESVE for compliance.
