IES Request For Proposal: ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1: Lighting Computer Modeling Project

RFP Deadline: January 31, 2018

This project 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. Project tasks will 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. Computer modeling will help improve the accuracy and applicability of the LPD values which in turn will strengthen the effectiveness of the Standard and other nationally applied energy codes and standards.

The Contractor shall work under the direction of the IES Director of Research and with representatives of the ANSI/ASHRAE/IES 90.1 Lighting Subcommittee (LSC). The LSC representatives have been responsible for Excel calculations and are most familiar with the inputs and assumptions utilized in the Standard 90.1 lighting calculations, and will provide the assumptions used within their existing program for input into the computer modeling. All work will be coordinated through the IES Standards & Research Department.
