Integrated Building Control Retrofit Package for Commercial Applications

The California Lighting Technology Center, in collaboration with the California Energy Commission, is conducting research to develop and evaluate technology that integrates automated controls for heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), electric lighting and dynamic fenestration systems. The integrated system is referred to as the Integrated Building Control Retrofit Package (IBCRP), as it is aimed for retrofit projects in existing commercial buildings.

Title 24: Residential Lighting

Title 24: Residential Lighting

The Residential Lighting Design Guide outlines best practices in lighting design to help builders comply with California's 2016 Title 24 Energy Standards requirements. 

Topics include:

  • Explanation of the code
  • Technical and compliance information
  • Lighting design examples

The lighting design guide will cover code explanation and floor plan examples of the following areas:

Energy-Efficient Lighting Systems Evaluations for Commercial Applications

CLTC, in partnership with Southern California Edison, recently kicked off a new project portfolio to assess controls, lighting, and daylighting technologies and their potential for commercial applications. The new projects will have elements of market assessment, EM&V, and selected demonstrations.

The project focus is on evaluating the following technologies:

UC Davis Undergraduate Daylighting Design

UC Davis Undergraduate Daylighting Design

Classes led by Professor Konstantinos Papamichael

California Lighting Technology Center Co-Director Konstantinos Papamichael teaches two complimentary undergraduate daylighting courses, Daylighting and Interior Design (DES137A), and Daylighting Design Studio (DES137B). Both courses combine lectures and studio work.  DES137A focuses on the effects of daylighting on interior designs, while DES137B concentrates on the effects of interior designs on daylight performance.

Core Sunlighting Alliance

Core Sunlighting Alliance

The Core Sunlighting Alliance is a group of leaders in the fields of design, construction, energy-efficient technology development, and energy regulation who are committed to accelerating the commercialization and widespread adoption of core sunlighting systems.

Adaptive Envelope Systems for Retail & Agriculture

Adaptive Envelope Systems for Retail & Agriculture

CLTC is collaborating with the California Energy Commission and the California Institute for Energy and Environment (CIEE) to develop adaptive envelope technologies for retail and agricultural buildings. The objective is to develop systems that optimize both lighting and thermal efficiency in these facilities, using advanced fenestration materials, daylighting technologies and lighting controls.
