In addition to his professional accomplishments in the Miami area, William Pino holds membership in the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) of North America.

In a recent study of the impact of the 2016 IES and American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Standard 90.1 on the cost of energy compared to previous standards, Pacific Northwest National Laboratories (PNNL) found that Standard 90.1 saves just north of 34 percent compared to IES’s previous standard published in 2004. PNNL conducted this research as part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Building Energy Codes Program.

Commenting on the study, ASHRAE president Tim Wentz noted the four decades of cooperation between his organization and IES to constantly update Standard 90.1 in accordance with modern developments in energy savings and production. He also predicted that the two groups would continue to push forward to find the most energy savings possible, even as the work becomes more difficult in the face of inherently efficient new technologies.
