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.
California’s new Title 24 standards will require that certain lighting control devices be certified as properly installed and operational before occupancy permits are issued. The new standards also require that this verification process be performed by a trained and certified lighting controls acceptance test technician.
This year, 2014, marks the 10th Annual Luminaire Design Competition for students enrolled in Designing with Light (DES 136 B) at the University of California, Davis. The competition gives students the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art lighting technologies and to share their designs with professionals in the lighting industry. Seoul Semiconductor and LEDLab supported the 2014 competition and provided each student with an Acrich2 LED module for use in their energy-efficient outdoor luminaire prototypes.
The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) held its 10th Annual Luminaire Design Competition on March 13, 2014. Each year since CLTC’s founding, Professor Michael Siminovitch has provided the UC Davis undergraduate students in his Designing with Light class (DES136B) with a design challenge that spans the full 10 weeks of the course. Lighting courses at UC Davis are taught through the Department of Design, under the College of Letters and Science’s Division of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies.
Join Assembly Member Mariko Yamada and representatives from State Senator Lois Wolk's office, the California Lighting Technology Center, Woodland Unified School District, SolarCity, and EverLast Lighting for a celebratory ribbon cutting ceremony.
