I2SL Workshop: Lighting Control Workshop:
Effective, Efficient, and Sustainable Light Control Strategies for Laboratory and Healthcare Facilities

Workshop Description

Effective light management saves significant energy, reduces operating costs, and increases productivity in laboratories, healthcare facilities, data centers, and related environments. Learn how sustainable lighting practices can improve your bottom line, increase occupant productivity and comfort, and create a more flexible space for a highly efficient work environment.

This half-day course will cover a range of topics including lamp types and control technologies, digital light controls, and whole building light control systems. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss how to use light control systems to enhance building safety and security and create new opportunities for facility energy load management.

This course also features significant material from the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC). This organization, based out of the University of California, Davis, is one of the top lighting research and development centers. Particular topics of interested added by CLTC are the inclusion of several laboratory lighting case studies and an extended exploration into LED lighting.

Continuing Education Credits

This course is worth 3.5 Green Building Certification Institute Continuing Education Hours toward the LEED Credential Maintenance Program, as approved by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC); 3 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) for professional engineers; and 3 Continuing Education Credits (CECs) from the American Institute of Architects for registered architects.
