The 2019 Title 24 Building Energy Standards for Nonresidential Buildings, scheduled to take effect on January 1, 2020, include numerous changes, including extending the scope of Part 6 to healthcare facilities, revising ventilation and lighting requirements, among them updating prescriptive indoor and outdoor lighting power allowance values to assume the use of LED lighting, plus revisions to HVAC and acceptance test requirements.
Martyn Dodd will summarize the new and revised requirements in the 2019 standards for nonresidential and high-rise residential buildings and direct participants to informational and training resources that provide more in-depth Title 24 information. Architects, engineers, lighting designers, energy consultants, contractors, and building department staff should find this training of interest and directly applicable to their work. Participants will benefit if they have some background on California?s Title 24 Building Energy Standards. See: http://www.energy.ca.gov/title24/
