SEED Guidelines
The SEED Guidelines describe the SEED program and requirements in detail. They are intended for use by state agencies/building owners, building design team members, energy analysts, and Department of Energy (Energy) staff.
The Guidelines underwent a major revision after the SEED Rules were amended in November 2001. Representatives of several state agencies provided input on the Guidelines through a series of meetings.
The SEED Guidelines are in PDF format and can be downloaded with Adobe Acrobat. Appendix H (Class 1 Building Energy Analysis Report Template) is also available in Word format. You can download the complete SEED Guidelines or individual sections (see below).
