Consulting-Specfiying Engineer's Top 5 most read articles online, for May 16-22, covered designing generator systems, 2016 Product of the Year finalists, 40 Under 40 winners, generator demand-response programs, and intelligent buildings. Link to each article below.

1. Designing generator systems

When designing generator systems, engineers must ensure that the generators and the building electrical systems they support are appropriate for the application. Many questions must be addressed before starting the generator system design.

2. 2016 Product of the Year finalists

Another year of innovation and technological advancement has led up to the 12th annual Product of the Year awards. This year, companies submitted their new and improved products to be judged for this distinguished honor.

3. 2016 40 Under 40 winners

Exceptional. Dedicated. Driven. These are a few of the words used to describe the 2016 Consulting-Specifying Engineer 40 Under 40 winners. Now in its ninth year, the program honors young building and engineering professionals, each of whom was nominated by a mentor.

4. Generator demand-response programs may disappear

Changes to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations will very soon restrict or eliminate owners of standby generators' ability to participate in utility "demand-response programs."

5. A comprehensive look at the intelligent building

Most infrastructure systems deployed in today's buildings are inherently "smart," with self-contained logical control that includes embedded performance optimization and self-diagnostic algorithmic features. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, May 16-22, for articles published within the last two months.
