Top 5 Consulting-Specifying Engineer Articles, January 29-February 4Consulting-Specifying Engineer's top 5 most read articles online for January January 29-February 4 covered energy generation, simplifying lighting code compliance, backup and emergency power, NFPA 110 and NEC, and AHSRAE compliance. Link to each article below.

1. Energy generation: using various power sources

Despite (or as a result of) the economic downturn, the use of renewable energy options have grown over the past several years, supported by federal and state programs including federal tax credits, state renewable portfolio standards, and a federal renewable fuels standard.

2.How to simplify code compliance for lighting projects

Asking key questions will ease the process of complying with required energy codes.

3.Designing backup, standby, and emergency power for high-performance buildings

Backup power design for a high-performance building is required, and offers many benefits.

4.Satisfying NFPA 110 and NEC requirements

Consulting engineers who specify emergency power equipment should identify when installations are required to comply with NFPA 110 in conjunction with other codes. This collection of case studies provides examples of recent projects that had various challenges associated with these requirements.

5.Achieving compliance with ASHRAE 90.1

ASHRAE Standard 90.1: Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings is one of the main drivers used in any building design. The 2016 edition hasn't been adopted by all jurisdictions, however engineers should understand the key elements of this important standard.

This list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on www.csemag.com, January 29-February 4, for articles published within the last two months.
