The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) at the University of California, Davis announces the publication of five downloadable lighting design guides to help builders, contractors, and other lighting industry professionals meet or exceed California’s 2013 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6).
2015 DOE Solid-State Lighting R&D Workshop
Presented by Konstantinos Papamichael
The intersection of solid-state lighting, mobile devices, and advanced electronics and sensors will enable completely new ways to control lighting and increase the value of lighting to consumers. Dr. Papamichael shared his insights on new visions for adaptive lighting controls.
Electrical Marketing—Smart building control and management system maker Daintree Networks, Los Altos, Calif., has formed an affiliate partnership with UC Davis' California Lighting Technology Center with the goal of advancing lighting controls. Daintree and CLTC will collaborate on efforts to raise awareness about the benefits of networked lighting controls.
For the first time, the University of California, Davis Department of Design and the California Lighting Technology Center will focus on organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology in one of its most popular design classes, with the help of Acuity Brands, Inc.
CLTC developed the High-Efficacy Residential Lighting guide to provide information about lighting products and key lighting principles and best practice recommendations. The guide is designed to help builders and lighting industry professionals working on zero-net energy (ZNE) and sustainable residential projects.
Lighting designs consisting of high-efficacy luminaires and lamps currently exceed California's energy code requirements. Such designs are increasingly attractive to home buyers as demand grows for energy-efficient smart homes and ZNE residences.
The California Lighting Technology Center’s 2013 Residential Lighting Guide for Title 24, Part 6 compliance is designed to help builders and lighting industry professionals navigate the residential lighting portion of California’s newest Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6). The new standards took effect July 1, 2014 and include updated requirements for high-efficacy lighting, lighting controls, and LED quality.
Daintree Networks, the leader in open wireless smart building solutions for enterprise control and energy management, today announced its affiliate partnership with UC Davis' California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) with the goal of advancing lighting controls.
LD+A—Researchers in California are developing a standard methodology for conducting field demonstrations to better inform energy codes and standards.
