California’s newest Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6) take effect July 1, 2014 and include an unprecedented number of requirements for lighting controls. To ensure newly installed lighting controls operate properly, the new standards also require that a certified lighting controls acceptance test technician conduct and document all required lighting controls acceptance tests.

CLTC Co-director Konstantinos Papamichael discusses how new lighting strategies and technologies can impact human health and circadian function, both positively and negatively.
CLTC recently released “Lighting Retrofit Strategies for California Schools,” a new guide designed to help K–12 schools and community colleges maximize the long-term benefits of energy-efficient lighting upgrades. The guide provides expert advice on best practices for planning projects, incorporating daylighting and lighting controls, and selecting solutions for applications commonly found at school sites. The interactive electronic guide also includes Web links to case studies, product specification sheets, free or low-cost support programs, and other online resources.
CLTC’s “Lighting Retrofit Strategies for California Schools” is designed to help project managers navigate the many options now available for lighting retrofits and installations. The guide covers lighting and daylighting retrofit strategies that have consistently proven to provide the greatest long-term energy savings and lighting quality improvements on K–12 and community college campuses.
A new award has been created for undergraduate students who demonstrate exceptional interest and aptitude in lighting and energy efficiency. The Susan Woodward Lighting Design and Research Award will help further the education of students enrolled in undergraduate lighting courses at the University of California, Davis.
Join CLTC Co-director Konstantinos Papamichael as he discusses how new lighting strategies and technologies can impact human health and circadian function, both positively and negatively. Networking begins at 6:00 p.m., followed by the presentation at 7:00 p.m. and a Q&A session, at Gensler Architecture Design & Planning in San Francisco.
This program will help clear up much of the misinformation and confusion surrounding LED technology while giving building and design professionals dependable guidelines for lighting indoor and outdoor applications.
