RTM Engineering Consultants’ content has been featured on the Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s website. The article, Understanding the Impact of IECC updates on Lighting Controls, details the updates made to the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), which recognizes the impactful role interior lighting plays in the electricity usage of commercial buildings, and so included various major updates to lighting control systems for energy conservation. The IECC is revised periodically to stay up-to-date on current technology and practices.
Since energy conservation is an essential aspect of building design in today’s society, the International Code Council (ICC) developed standards to encourage energy conservation through efficient design and installation of building envelopes and mechanical, lighting, and power systems. Although the 2012 IECC is not the most recent edition, it’s increased focused on energy efficiency surpassed that of previous years’ versions and has been adopted by nearly half of the states. Implemented at the state and/or local levels, varying editions of the code are adhered to based on where a design is located.
