CLTC is excited to share the lighting updates made to the ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2019 Energy Efficiency Standard for Buildings that were released in October 2019! Notable changes from the 2016 version include:
Designers, owners and operators are all faced with a myriad of decisions on how best to achieve their building design and operational goals. Complex and often conflicting objectives can make even the simplest decisions appear challenging. Take, for example, thermal comfort. According to the Department of Energy, adjusting temperature set points by just one degree for an eight-hour workday can save commercial building owners 3% in energy costs.
