Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for Aug. 10-16, covered a microgrid case study at Princeton, engineering on an international scale, a zero-net energy case study, waste heat recovery, and NFPA 72 amendments. Link to each article below.

1. Case study: Microgrid at Princeton University

Microgrids can lower cost and raise reliability for the owner, and for surrounding communities. 

2. Engineering on an international scale

Working on projects clear across the globe may introduce more obstacles to overcome than mere distance and language barriers—each locale comes with its own codes, climate conditions, and unique characteristics. 

3. Case study: Zero-net energy transit center

The John W. Olver Transit Center zero-net energy (ZNE) project is a high-performance building designed with reduced energy loads, passive design strategies, maximized efficiency of mechanical and electrical systems, and on-site power generation.

4. Recycling 101: Waste heat recovery

Waste heat recovery systems are increasingly used in mixed-use buildings to move waste heat from laboratories, data centers, or industrial activities to provide beneficial heating in other parts of the building. 

5. Certified amending motions on NFPA 72 

Motions on the following public comments were certified as motions that were permitted to be made at the NFPA Conference and Expo, June 24-25, 2015.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, August 10-16, for articles published within the last two months.
