Under 'Further explanation - Exceptional Calculation method - Changes from earlier versions of ASHRAE and LEED', the CI reference guide states "All project types may count energy savings from efficient refrigeration equipment, cooking and food preparation, clothes washing, and other major support appliances. LEED Appendix 3, Retail Tables 1–4, defines the baseline conditions".

Does this mean any project type, e.g., new construction or commercial interiors, can use the Appendix 3 Retail table energy consumption data to establish the baseline energy usage of a standard refrigerator for comparison with a more efficient unit in an energy model?
