AES Engineering Selected for ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1 Lighting Computer Modeling Project

New York, NY, February 9, 2018 – The Illuminating Engineering Society is pleased to announce that AES Engineering has been selected as the contractor for the ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1 Lighting Computer Modeling Project.

The project, funded jointly by ASHRAE, BC Hydro, IALD, and IES, supports the development of the Lighting Power Density (LPD) limits in the ANSI/ASHRAE/IES 90.1 Standard that form a significant part of the basis for most of the building energy code lighting requirements across the United States. Using AGi32 software, the project tasks support the work of the 90.1 Lighting Subcommittee (LSC) by providing computer modeling that parallels the current Excel models used in Lighting Power Density (LPD) development.

AES Engineering provides comprehensive electrical engineering and lighting design services for building construction projects. They have offices in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Victoria, Canada. Their team of five, lead by Principal in Charge Sunny Ghataurah, have extensive experience with both AGi32 software and Standard 90.1. The team has a combined 40 years of lighting experience, and includes members of IES and IALD.
