Power quality solutions often involve a certain level of compromise between
the electrical system design and the design of the end -use equipment. In many cases,
it will be easier to provide protection and power quality design features to specific
equipment rather than generically throughout the facility.
Follow the established procedures as described in the Illuminating
Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) Lighting Handbook, for lighting
calculations. Ensure personnel are trained and qualified to perform such calculations.
Appendix F provides an overview on interior lighting.
2-10.1.1 Executive Order (EO) 13123, Greening the Government Through Efficient
Energy Management, was issued on June 3, 1999. This EO requires that energy
efficient products must be considered and applied wherever they are life -cycle cost -
effective. EO 13123 requires, through life -cycle cost-effective measures, that each
agency reduce energy consumption p er gross square foot of its facilities by 30 percent
by 2005 and 35 percent by 2010 relative to 1985. The following is an excerpt of Section
403(b), ENERGY STAR and Other Energy Efficient Products:
"(1) Agencies shall select, where life -cycle cost effe ctive, ENERGY
STAR and other energy efficient products when acquiring energy-
using products. For product groups where ENERGY STAR labels are
not yet available, agencies shall select products that are in the upper 25
percent of energy efficiency as designated by FEMP. The
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and DOE shall expedite the
process of designating products as ENERGY STAR and will merge
their current efficiency rating procedures.
(2) GSA and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), with assistanc e from
EPA and DOE, shall create clear catalogue listings that designate these
products in both print and electronic formats. In addition, GSA and DLA
shall undertake pilot projects from selected energy-using products to
show a "second price tag", which means an accounting of the operating
and purchase costs of the item, in both printed and electronic
catalogues and assess the impact of providing this information on
Federal purchasing decisions.
(3) Agencies shall incorporate energy efficient criteria co nsistent with
ENERGY STAR and other FEMP -designated energy efficiency levels
