California’s 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards

The 2016 Title 24, Part 6 Code Standards take effect on January 1, 2017:
• Residential Lighting: The 2016 Standards focus on several key areas to improve the energy efficiency of newly constructed buildings, additions and alterations to existing buildings. The most significant efficiency improvements address attics, walls, water heating and lighting. http://cltc.ucdavis.edu/publication/2016-title-24-code-changes-residential
• Nonresidential Lighting: 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 contained in the 2016 nonresidential lighting energy efficiency standards.http://cltc.ucdavis.edu/publication/2016-title-24-code-changes-nonresidential
