Renewable Energy & Advanced Lighting Systems for Exterior Applications

CLTC Studies Renewable Energy & Advanced Lighting Systems for Exterior Applications

Exterior lighting generally operates from early evening through early morning, a period of little to no renewable energy generation, which means this lighting is primarily powered by carbon-dense fossil fuels. Fossil fuel use is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), poor air quality, water pollution and land degradation. In addition, low-quality exterior lighting characterized by poor color, inappropriate light distribution, and inadequate light levels has also been linked to increased crime rates and reduced physical activity within the surrounding community.

US Department of Labor Awards CLTC & Partners $5M+ to Expand Electrical Training Programs

Published: Mon, 03/09/2020

CLTC is excited to share that the US Department of Labor recently awarded $5M+ to CLTC and our training partners to support the expansion of electrical training programs across California and Nevada!  This four-year funding is part of the Apprenticeship: Closing the Skills Gap grant program and will be used to develop a Smart Cities apprenticeship tract that includes advanced electrical training on:

Evaluating Opportunities in Advanced Daylighting Retrofits

Interior lighting remains a large component of electricity use in non-residential buildings. In California, electric lighting has both a direct effect on peak load, and an indirect effect by increasing cooling requirements during summer peak hours. Effective daylighting combined with electric lighting dimming controls can directly offset electric lighting energy by reducing lighting levels when necessary to reduce the load on the cooling system.
