KEEP PA Energy Efficiency Conference  ( September 26th, Harrisburg )
Topic: How Lighting Controls Help Meet Building Energy Code Requirements


Description
According to the U.S. D.O.E., other than process loads (e.g. motors, fans, machines…) lighting is the largest energy user in commercial buildings. Lighting consumes more energy than space heating, cooling, ventilation, refrigeration, electronics, water heating, cooking, and computers. Lighting controls can drastically reduce that appetite. They can eliminate 60% or more of the wasted lighting energy in buildings while enhancing occupant comfort and productivity. Building energy codes understand the importance of lighting control toward reducing energy consumption. This session will review the mandatory lighting control requirements in the latest commercial building energy codes such as ASHRAE 90.1-2016 and IECC 2018.
