I would like to know if the District Cooling System needs to comply with ASHRAE mandatories. I have read the DES Guide and seem like choosing the Option 2, the project needs to comply with the Standard. However I'm working in a project that the system is existent.
Does the upstream system needs to comply with the ASHRAE mandatories (even the exist system)?
On the same project, they are planning to install a renewable energy system to supply energy for the project (the energy will be supplied only for the project). Can We use the system to account energy efficiency for the Propose building in the both option (Option 1 and Option 2)?
As the renewable energy system supply energy only for the project, even though is outside the LEED boundary, does the system comply with the EAc2?
