CALCTP-AT Technician Training Course

02/03/2014 to 02/07/2014

CALCTP has rescheduled its training and certification course for lighting controls acceptance test technicians in order to accommodate more participants. The course will now take place February 3 – 7 at CLTC. Those who successfully complete the course will be certified to conduct lighting controls acceptance tests as required by the new 2013 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24).

Smart Lighting Initiative: Phase 2

Smart Lighting Phase 2 in 43 buildings

Phase 2 of the UC Davis Smart Lighting Initiative will upgrade lighting in offices, labs, classrooms, corridors, and other spaces in selected buildings built in 1985 or later. Implementation of energy-efficient light sources, vacancy sensors and lighting control systems will reduce energy use by an estimated 5.5 million kilowatt-hours annually, saving the campus about $475,000, according to Scott Arntzen, senior project manager with Design and Construction Management.

Eyes on the Road

08/01/2013

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.

Case Study: UC Davis Exterior Lighting Retrofit

06/01/2009

Most parking garages use high intensity discharge light sources that operate continuously regardless of lighting needs. These facilities typically do not employ energy-saving control strategies such as daylighting or time clock scheduling, and no considerations are made for lighting control based on occupancy. Garage lighting, designed to only a single static level, wastes energy and contributes to peak demand during the day and light pollution at night.

2013 California Higher Education Sustainability Conference

06/24/2013 to 06/25/2013

Join UC Davis representatives, including staff from CLTC and WCEC, at this year's CHESC event hosted by UC Santa Barbara. Visit booth #203 to learn about lighting and HVAC innovations tested through the State Partnership for Energy Efficient Demonstrations (SPEED). Information on incentives and project financing options will also be available.

Residential Lighting: Title 24 and Technology Update

01/01/2008

These presentation slides cover best practices for residential lighting design. The material is designed to help builders meet, or exceed, California's 2008 Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards. It includes background and policy, common lighting terms and technology updates, guidance in residential lighting design, a step-by-step overview of the Title 24 compliance process, and additional resources.

Adaptive Circadian Lighting Demonstration: Honda Smart Home US

Adaptive Circadian Lighting Demonstration: Honda Smart Home US

CLTC and UC Davis have partnered with affiliate American Honda Motor Co., Inc. on the Honda Smart Home US project. Groundbreaking took place April 23, 2013 at UC Davis West Village. Project leaders from UC Davis and Honda celebrated the project's completion at an open house event on March 25, 2014. The zero net energy (ZNE) home is a model of residential sustainability, demonstrating best-practice solutions for lighting in new construction projects.
