California's new nonresidential Building Energy Efficiency Standards take effect on January 1, 2017. The 2016 Standards focus on several key areas to improve the energy efficiency of newly constructed buildings, additions and alterations to existing buildings. California's Standards now align with ASHRAE 90.1 2013 standards and include more stringent lighting power density limits for many indoor and outdoor spaces. Updates enhance and simplify many aspects of the 2013 requirements including indoor lighting control requirements for new construction and alterations.
