Advanced Lighting Control Systems Bench Testing - Plug Load Controls
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 en 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.
Outcome-based energy codes are relatively new. They incorporate strategies that quantify a building’s actual energy performance over time to demonstrate code compliance. The term "outcome-based" refers to the fact that compliance is linked with a building’s actual energy “outcome” which may be measured post-occupancy.
CLTC is excited to announce an update to the Daylight Harvesting for Commercial Buildings publication! This in-depth tool provides guidance towards meeting and exceeding California's 2019 Energy Code for daylight harvesting.
Daylight design guidance and associated Energy Code are provided in an easy to read, side-by-side layout, organized into sections for each building-related discipline that impacts daylight performance from building siting, through architectural and interior design, to construction, commissioning and operation.
The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) at the University of California Davis collaborated with Southern California Edison, RMS Energy Consulting, LLC and the California Energy Commission to provide this educational video in support of the 2019 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24). California’s new Building Energy Efficiency Standards took effect on January 1, 2020.
