enLIGHTen: IES International Year of Light Photo Contest 2015
In celebration of 2015 as the International Year of Light as proclaimed by UNESCO, the Emerging Professionals of IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) are giving you a reason to share your love for lighting for the next 6 months. Every month we will announce a “Theme of the Month” to which you will post “lighting” photos related to the chosen theme. You can post as many photos as you wish and at the end of each month, for bragging rights only, we will announce our favourite photo of the month. In August, a group of industry professional judges will select the top 3 entrants based on their photo originality, uniqueness, relevance to the theme of the month, activity and interaction with the public.

New Reports Chart Path to Net-Zero-Energy Commercial Buildings

Consortium of Industry Stakeholders Flag Energy Efficiency in Recommendations to Move Sector to Net-Zero

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) commissioned the reports from the Commercial Building Consortium (CBC), an industry consortium led by the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO), the Alliance to Save Energy (Alliance) and other leading national organizations to identify barriers and make recommendations to industry stakeholders for achieving net-zero-energy commercial buildings over the next two to three decades. The Next Generation Technologies: Barriers and Industry Recommendations for Commercial Buildings and the Analysis of Cost & Non-Cost Barriers and Policy Solutions for Commercial Buildings, focus on innovative technologies and practices and market-oriented strategies, respectively. Free copies of the reports can be downloaded from the CBC website www.zeroenergycbc.org

The IES contributed the “Lighting, Daylighting, and Controls” section of the Next Generation Technologies report and is an active continuing participant as member of the CBC Steering Committee (Bob Horner, Director of Public Policy, is IES’ representative on the Steering Committee and co-chair of the Lighting Working Group). A more formal press release will be issued shortly by the CBC.
