2-part question regarding the BCL measure "Create Baseline Building":

  1. I've downloaded Create Baseline Building into OpenStudio (v 1.14.0), but when I try to run the measure, I get the following error: "Failed to Show Arguments, Reason(s): Failed to compute arguments for measure: cannot load such file -- openstudio-standards." -- Any suggestions for solutions here?

  2. When I get this measure up and running, is there a way to set the baseline to California Title 24, rather than ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix G?

If you are using OpenStudio measure that use the 'openstudio-standards' gem outside of one of our interfaces, you will need to install the gem into your ruby environment. See the QuickStartUserGuide for the gem.

For your second question, the answer for now is no, but I'll let @aparker address our development plans for extending 'openstudio-standards'

Any update on this? I would like to use OS for a modeling project but it requires generating Title 24 baselines
