AEDG Implementation Recommendations: Interior Lighting Sample Layouts for Office Buildings

The Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) for Small Office Buildings, 30% series, seeks to achieve 30% savings over ASHRAE Standard 90.1-1999. This guide focuses on improvements to small office buildings, less than 20,000ft2. The recommendations in this article are adapted from the implementation section of the guide and focus on the 0.9 W/ft2 foot goal for lighting power which represents an average lighting power density for the entire building. An example design describes one way (but not the only way) that this watts-per-square-foot limit can be met.
