LD+A – CLTC and Berkeley Lab partnered to test the ADR-readiness of commercially available networked lighting control systems. All three systems tested were configured for automated demand response (ADR) communications, and all three successfully accessed the demand response automation server (DRAS) to retrieve DR events.
The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) was created in 2003 to accelerate technology transfer from the laboratory to the marketplace by fostering collaboration among lighting and energy stakeholders. The center was founded at the University of California, Davis, with support from the California Energy Commission, California utilities, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association.
Jade Sky Technologies – Jade Sky Technologies (JST), a clean-tech start-up manufacturer of driver ICs for LED lighting applications, announces its affiliate partnership with the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC). The aim of the partnership is to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of meeting the best-in-class standards set by the California Quality LED Lamp Specification, which is set to take effect in January 2014.
California is embarking on some of the boldest building retrofit programs in the country to achieve its pioneering climate goals set by the state’s legislature and voters. In order to ensure that this large-scale investment is wisely executed and achieves maximum energy savings, stakeholders need to quickly develop an integrated statewide educational program that will teach our public building facility managers best practices and implementation strategies.
Winner of the top award for Research, Publications, Software, and Measuring Devices at Lightfair International 2014, the IES's RP-5-13: Recommended Practice for Daylighting Buildings includes the most up-to-date technological solutions and data for addressing the challenges of daylighting while maximizing its benefits.
Presentations from the Smart Schools Symposium 2013.
Rambus Inc. – Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS), the innovative technology solutions company that brings invention to market, today announced it is now an affiliate of the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) at the University of California, Davis.
LD+A – CLTC researchers incorporated passive infrared (PIR) occupancy sensors and networked controls into a test set of dimmable LED roadway fixtures. The adaptive street lighting system yielded energy savings 27 to 42 percent greater than when the fixtures operated at a static level. All occupants, 100 percent, were detected by the PIR occupancy sensor selected for field testing, whether they were traveling on foot, by bicycle, on a motorcycle, or in an automobile.
