Lighting energy conservation measures are typically recommended in commercial bui1ding energy audits. Over 60% of the cost in Bonneville Power's commercial building energy conservation programs are related to lighting.

The current generation of building simulation software is based upon separate building and mechanical system simulations.
Michael J. Witte
Collaborative efforts among building simulation researchers in Europe and the US have resulted in wide acceptance of certain features as necessary attributes of future simulation environments.

This paper describes the techniques for validating dynamic thermal models devised by collaborating institutions in the United Kingdom.
David P. Bloomfield
Some details of the optimization work conducted over the last five years in a high rise office complex are described.
Z. Cumali, O. Sezgen
Modellers ands users of simulation softwares need to agree on a standard way to state the physical bases of their models The proposals presented in this paper are not new; they refer to the very classical way of describing thermodynamical systems.
Jean Lebrun
This paper describes a recently developed, multi-chromatic lighting simulation model, known by the acronym DIM (Digital Illumination Model).
J.A. Clarke
Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory is developing a PC-based computer tool, the Retrofit Energy Savings Estimation Model (RESEM) which can provide high-quality estimates of energy savings, based on actual pre-and post-retrofit utility bills.

Many criticisms have been made about existing software for building energy analysis and simulation. In this paper, we try to show the interest of the model-based approach. The credibility of simulation results is pointed out.
Anne-Marie Dubois
The present American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) standard 62-1981 "Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality" is being revised.
Earnest S. McCutcheon, Marino Vardabasso
Computers are currently used for a large variety of tasks in building design and analysis.
Bo-Christer Bjork
A new computer program has been written for comparing the annual energy and economic performances of different window systems in non-residential buildings.
R. McCluney
This paper describes the concept of developing a component program library for building energy simulation and the current state of its development, which has been made by a working group of theSociety of Heating, Air-Conditioning and Sanitary Engi

The Indoor Air Quality Simulator for personal computers (IAQPC) has been developed in response to the growing need for quick, accurate predictions of indoor air contamination levels.
M. K. Owen, P. A. Lawless, D. S. Ensor
Air enthalpy control strategy, or often known as free cooling, has been very effective in conserving building air-conditioning power consumptions-in moderate climatic areas.
K. H. Yang, R. L. Hwang
Proposed construction of high rise buildings near the U. S. Naval Observatory in Washington D.C. caused astronomers to ask what effect the heat released by these buildings would have on their ability to make accurate observations.
Richard E. Hirst, Calvin A. Kodres
Experimental studies during the 1940S concluded that heat loss from slab-on-grade floors is proportional to floor perimeter length. More recent numerical investigations, however, indicate that area and shape are also important parameters.
Curtis O. Pedersen, William P. Bahnfleth
Several single zone, monthly based, correlation methods have been developed at a national level , ver the past few years.
