EMAEE April 2019 Meeting - 4/9/19 at Lawrence Tech
The East Michigan Association of Energy Engineers invites you to attend their meeting on Tuesday April 9, 2019.

Overview of Updated Michigan Energy Code

The new Michigan Energy Code (MEC), effective September 20, 2017, is based on ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2013: Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings and requires:
    the commissioning of HVAC controls for all new construction and certain addition and alteration projects;

    for projects larger than 10,000 ft2, commissioning of HVAC systems and equipment for all new construction as well as certain additions and alteration projects; and

    third-party functional testing of lighting controls for all new construction and additions as well as alteration projects involving more than 50% of existing lighting; to ensure that controls and equipment are calibrated, adjusted and in proper working condition when your project is completed

And, for projects larger than 10,000 ft2, the MEC also requires that commissioning requirements be explicitly detailed in the project plans and specifications. If you're planning for a new construction project, an HVAC system replacement or a lighting system upgrade, your project is undoubtedly impacted by the new Michigan Energy Code.

Learn the highlights of the updated code and how it will affect your project plans, commissioning and maintenance.
