        CRES37: Energy Code – Comparative Analysis

        Wireless Lighting Control and Energy Code Review examines the many wireless protocols lighting control manufacturers are implementing today along with their benefits and detriments to our already crowded wireless atmosphere. These new technologies, along with their communication, are becoming vastly more popular and well adopted in the commercial space; one strictly dictated by a constantly evolving energy code. This presentation explores these protocols and offers helpful compliance paths to ease the daunting task commercial consultants face with the newest release of ASHRAE 90.1 2016.

        After this course you will:

        • Be aware of wireless communication protocols available to manufacturers of controls and how they differ
        • Understand the energy code requirements adopted by each state and the compliance path associated with each
