CLTC, in partnership with the Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) and the California IBEW-NECA Labor Management Cooperation Committee (CA LMCC) is working to expand career pathways in the electrical industry. With new funding from the California Energy Commission, CLTC will develop training resources to increase workforce development opportunities in disadvantaged communities.
Professor Michael Siminovitch recently presented, “Circadian Design Principles—Application to Healthcare Facilities,” at a lecture sponsored by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC). This seminar reviewed the ongoing collaboration in circadian design research and development for healthcare applications.
With new funding awarded from the Asia‑Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), the California Lighting Technology Center, UC Davis will continue to lead an initiative focused on developing lighting strategies designed for use in sustainable building projects. The funding, awarded under the winning proposal titled “Establishing Lighting Best Practices and Educational Programs to Achieve Deep Energy Savings,” will support workshops intended to build a collaborative of researchers committed to the development of sharable lighting best practices that will achieve deep energy savings through retrof
UC Davis Today—In most classes, coursework involves sitting in front of a computer. But UC Davis students in professor Michael Siminovitch’s Design with Light class are hard at play. They’re using their hands and their imaginations to devise what could become the next big thing in lighting. Read the full story.
CLTC hosted the University of California Global Climate Leadership Council meeting on February 25.
UC President Janet Napolitano formed the council to advise UC campuses on achieving the ambitious goal of carbon neutrality by 2025 while providing guidance for furthering other longstanding sustainability goals. The council will offer direction on integrating the carbon neutrality initiative into UC’s teaching, research and public service mission.
CLTC Director Michael Siminovitch and undergraduate student Elaine Swiedler represents UC Davis on the council.
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).
Presentation to ASHRAE Golden Gate Chapter
Presented by Konstantinos Papapmichael, Ph.D
Overview of human light sensing and processing, focusing on well-being and health effects, especially the effects of blue light on circadian rhythms. Lighting strategies and implementation technologies that support human well-being and health, considering key indoor and outdoor applications.
This course covers the latest Title 24, Part 6 code requirements for office lighting. Attendees will gain a firm understanding of the new state standards now in effect, and they will be able to ensure lighting in new and remodeled commercial offices is in compliance. The course will also provide an overview of current lighting technologies available to help meet or exceed code requirements.
