Energy Code Requirements, Demystified

Commercial building code regulations can provide energy cost savings and sustainability for building owners. But they can mean growing complexity for engineers, architects and other designers. Today’s codes regulate construction in jurisdictions covering nearly 90% of the U.S. population; that’s a lot of codes!

To help you with the requirements, LC&D has published Energy Code Compliant Solutions Using Digital Lighting Controls. It describes IECC, ASHRAE 90.1 and California Title 24 mandates for lighting controls like auto-shutoff, bilevel switching, space controls, and daylight harvesting. An at-a-glance table summarizes requirements. To help with compliance, the right LC&D digital lighting control is identified.
