Statement of Energy Design Intent

The Statement of Energy Design Intent (SEDI) in PDF format is a 2-page summary of the Design Energy inputs and results data from Target Finder. The SEDI can be used to document the energy intent for your design project and may be included in the Request for Proposal.

 

To generate the SEDI for your Design Energy Use, complete the input requirements in sections 1- 4 on the input screen in Target Finder. (See Determine the Energy Performance Rating for Design Energy Use)  The SEDI can only be generated from the Results screen.  Select View Statement of Energy Design Intent or Apply for Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR (located in upper right of the page) on the Results screen.  Note: the SEDI doesn’t display the Target results.
