Heading to the lighting aisle soon? Keep these key factors in mind when selecting your new light source:
Good retail lighting presents the store’s merchandise in a way that makes shopping a comfortable and engaging experience. In most retail applications, this involves maximizing illumination while minimizing the visibility of light sources. This allows customers to focus on what is being lit, versus the lighting itself. These modules are training materials for the Title 24 Retail course. This intermediate class is for professionals who design, specify, and/or inspect lighting installations in new and remodeled retail spaces.
The Residential Lighting Design Guide outlines best practices in lighting design to help builders comply with California's 2019 Title 24 Energy Standards requirements.
- Explanation of the code
- Technical and compliance information
- Lighting design examples
The lighting design guide will cover code explanation and floor plan examples of the following areas:
This Office Lighting course is designed for those who design, specify, or inspect lighting installations in new and remodeled commercial office spaces. The curriculum includes an overview of current lighting technologies, including LED luminaires, and updates on new lighting requirements and sections in the 2019 standards.
Learning outcomes for course participants include the ability to:
The California Lighting Technology Center’s 2016 Nonresidential Lighting and Electrical Power Distribution Guide assists builders and lighting industry professionals in navigating the nonresidential lighting portion of California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6). California's new nonresidential Building Energy Efficiency Standards took effect on January 1, 2017.
The California Energy Alliance (CEA) unites representatives of a broad range of organizations concerned about energy and the built environment. As a member-based organization, CEA works to improve California’s energy future and the migration toward a Zero Net Energy horizon. CEA focuses on the promotion and realization of deep energy savings, sustainable energy generation, and integration. The Alliance actively participates in the development and implementation of pragmatic, environmentally and economically sound building energy standards and other initiatives.
The California Lighting Technology Center has developed a series of fact sheets designed to raise awareness of the 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards, which took effect on January 1, 2017. These materials are intended to increase knowledge and implementation of code-compliant lighting for California’s residential and non-residential buildings.
Available fact sheets focus on key areas of the Energy Standards including:
CLTC is supporting the Center for Sustainable Energy develop classroom and on-the-job workforce training in SB 535-designated disadvantaged communities in IOU service territories. This project is funded by the California Energy Commission.
Electrical apprentices will learn to install and maintain automated demand-response (ADR) communications equipment in existing buildings to improve grid reliability and advance to goals of AB 758. Specifically, CLTC's role in the project is to:
