Good retail lighting presents the store’s merchandise in a way that makes shopping a comfortable and engaging experience. In most retail applications, this involves maximizing illumination while minimizing the visibility of light sources. This allows customers to focus on what is being lit, versus the lighting itself. These modules are training materials for the Title 24 Retail course. This intermediate class is for professionals who design, specify, and/or inspect lighting installations in new and remodeled retail spaces.
This Office Lighting course is offered through PG&E’s Energy Training Center and taught by an industry professional from CLTC. This course is designed for those who design, specify, or inspect lighting installations in new and remodeled commercial office spaces. The curriculum includes an overview of current lighting technologies, including LED luminaires, and updates on lighting requirements and sections in the 2016 standards.
Best practices in residential lighting design to comply with California's 2016 Title 24 Energy Standards. This presentation, along with the Title 24 Residential Lighting Design Guide, are training materials for the Title 24 Residential course. This class is for professionals who design, specify, and/or inspect lighting installations in new and remodeled residential spaces.
The California Lighting Technology Center’s 2016 Nonresidential Lighting and Electrical Power Distribution Guide assists builders and lighting industry professionals in navigating the nonresidential lighting portion of California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6). California's new nonresidential Building Energy Efficiency Standards took effect on January 1, 2017.
The California Lighting Technology Center has developed a series of fact sheets designed to raise awareness of the 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards, which took effect on January 1, 2017. These materials are intended to increase knowledge and implementation of code-compliant lighting for California’s residential and non-residential buildings.
Available fact sheets focus on key areas of the Energy Standards including:
Daylight management is an emerging term referring to strategies and technologies for controlling daylight penetration in interior spaces through windows, clerestories, skylights, tubular daylighting devices, and building core sunlighting systems to maximize daylight benefits.
Researchers Konstantinos Papamichael, Michael Siminovitch, Jennifer A. Veitch, and Lorne Whitehead argue that CRI is the proper metric for use today as a complement to efficacy in SSL regulatory policy.
The four scientists write with deep concern regarding the November 2016 article by respected colleagues, Mark Rea and Jean Paul Freyssinier, entitled “CRI should never be used in efficacy regulations but a new lumen definition should” (http://bit.ly/2gyozEC).
