The Lighting Quotient – The Lighting Quotient, manufacturer of elliptipar and tambient, will unveil the company’s first LED fixture, as well as a number of new elliptipar and tambient products at the 2010 AIA National Convention in Miami, FL, from June 10 to 12, 2010. Dave Pfund, the president of The Lighting Quotient’s tambient division will also lead a learning session focused on lighting and sustainable energy solutions.
Philips Day-Brite and CLTC partnered on this SPEED-sponsored project to demonstrate a adaptive high intensity discharge (HID) wall pack from Philips Day-Brite’s established NiteBrites product line. The product provides dynamic light levels to surrounding areas based on occupancy using a single HID lamp and fixture-integrated occupancy sensor.
CLTC – The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC), a research, development, and demonstration facility at the University of California, Davis, has installed more than 100 demonstrations of energy-efficient lighting since the Center’s inception in 2004. The wide range of demonstrations has been installed at University of California, California State University, California Community College campuses, and state and federal buildings throughout California in an effort to prove energy-efficient technology and report the findings to the public through case studies.
EMerge Alliance – The EMerge Alliance is an open industry association leading the rapid adoption of safe, low-voltage direct-current (DC) power distribution and use in commercial building interiors announced it has added 15 more companies to its coalition. Now more than 60-members strong, the Alliance continues to gain the support of building industry and technology leaders in a collaborative effort to bring greater energy efficiency and sustainability to new and existing facilities.
PIER-sponsored research, development, and demonstration has focused on the combination of occupancy-based lighting controls and broad-spectrum light sources to create intelligent, bi-level luminaires designed for street and parking area applications. These products achieve 30 – 75% energy savings compared to traditional street and area luminaires, meet stringent energy-efficiency standards, and provide excellent light distribution for reduced night sky pollution.
The California Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) Program through the California Lighting Technology Center funded development of a bi-level parking garage luminaire that integrates state-of-the-art induction sources and occupancy-based dimming controls.
Lighting California's Future – The Advanced LED Downlights project takes downlights in a whole new direction—up! The LCF project partners developed a dimmable downlighting system based on indirect optical design that reduces glare, decreases installation time, averages LED color variations and improves thermal management.
Six private offices and 44 open cubicle spaces on the ninth floor of the University of California Office of the President Franklin Building in Oakland, CA, received an IOLS retrofit in 2009. This site was selected because it provided a large, open office space, a high-occupant density, and expected long-term employee occupancy in the space.
