As the Architect of Record, <Firm Name> we are submitting a Statement of Energy Design
Intent (SEDI) for the <INSERT building name>, located in <INSERT city and state>, owned
by <INSERT Owner name>. We proudly submit this SEDI, which states our best estimate of
energy use for all specified systems and processes with the intent for the building to be
operated to achieve ENERGY STAR.
This project achieved an EPA energy performance rating of 75 or greater, and we are applying
for the Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR certification graphic. This certification graphic
indicates that the project was designed and specified to be an energy-efficient building and
does not guarantee performance of the building. We also understand that the graphic can only
be displayed on building plans, contract documents, and marketing materials for the specified
project and will adhere to the ENERGY STAR Logo Identity Guidelines.
<Firm Name> understands that the building Owner has been asked to measure and verify the
building’s energy use and, if it performs in the top 25 percent, to apply for the ENERGY STAR
qualified building label. We plan to review the energy use data to better understand how our
design impacted the overall energy performance of the building.
With the Owner’s consent, we agree to collaborate with EPA to create a building design profile
about this project’s energy use including its strategies, technologies, and EPA design rating to
be published in ENERGY STAR program materials.
We have put forth our best to design this building to earn the ENERGY STAR and help
prevent CO2 emissions associated with fossil fuel energy use.
