Establish Mexico Lighting Center

Establish Mexico Lighting Center

In the fall of 2017, the Mexican Ministry of Energy awarded funding to the Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara in collaboration with the University of California Davis to establish a lighting technology and design research center known as the Centro de Tecnología de Iluminación (CTI). This is a multi-year, public-private investment focused on addressing growing climate change concerns through translational research committed to clean energy and sustainability in Mexico.

The purpose of CTI is to accelerate the adoption and development of energy-efficient lighting and daylighting technologies, as well as to build capacity and training programs for Mexico’s lighting industry through university and industry collaborations. CTI’s research capabilities will help meet Mexico’s long-term energy-efficiency and greenhouse gas emission reduction goals.
