The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) at the University of California, Davis announces the publication of five downloadable lighting design guides to help builders, contractors, and other lighting industry professionals meet or exceed California’s 2013 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6).
Electrical Marketing—Smart building control and management system maker Daintree Networks, Los Altos, Calif., has formed an affiliate partnership with UC Davis' California Lighting Technology Center with the goal of advancing lighting controls. Daintree and CLTC will collaborate on efforts to raise awareness about the benefits of networked lighting controls.
The California Lighting Technology Center’s Retail Lighting Guide is designed to educate builders, lighting designers, contractors and others about the retail nonresidential lighting portion of California’s 2013 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6).
The California Lighting Technology Center’s 2013 Outdoor Lighting Guide for Title 24, Part 6 compliance is designed to help builders, lighting industry professionals, and others navigate the nonresidential outdoor lighting portion of California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards. The new standards, which took effect July 1, 2014, include updated requirements for retrofit standards, lighting controls, and uplight and glare limits.
The commercialization of Echelon's Lumewave MWX-LVE long-range outdoor microwave sensor illustrates CLTC's success in supporting advanced sensors for adaptive outdoor applications.
CLTC demonstrated and supported the next-generation sensor, which detects movement and can distinguish between slow and fast moving objects such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorized vehicles. The sensor reacts to the size of objects from longer distances, automatically raising the light levels to high output when the areas are occupied and lowering them when areas are vacant.
Daintree Networks, the leader in open wireless smart building solutions for enterprise control and energy management, today announced its affiliate partnership with UC Davis' California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) with the goal of advancing lighting controls.
The California Lighting Technology Center partnered with San Diego Gas & Electric and two Southern California cities on a project to help accelerate the adoption of energy-efficient advanced outdoor lighting control systems.
The project evaluated outdoor wireless lighting control systems that allows for remote operation and monitoring of fixtures using a web-enabled central management system. Laboratory and field assessments were conducted for separate systems installed as part of citywide retrofit projects in San Diego and Chula Vista.

In designing a lighting platform for exterior spaces, there are unique challenges to be met. Environments like academic and corporate campuses, as well as municipal entities, have varying needs and requirements. To accommodate for the time of day, the season and activities on site at any moment, the lighting will have to be flexible and highly customizable.
