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.
CLTC, UC Davis, is collaborating with other stakeholders to launch the statewide Lighting Retrofit Information, Training and Education program (Light-RITE California). The program will provide public building facility managers with the knowledge and tools they need to get the best possible results from lighting upgrades. The program focuses on the top 10 lighting retrofit strategies that have been proven to reliably capture the most savings. It will include instruction on conducting lighting audits, completing measurement and verification, and minimizing maintenance costs.

Agenda from the November 5, 2013 Light-RITE California Roundtable.
The California Advanced Lighting Controls Training Program (CALCTP) is offering a course for lighting controls acceptance test technicians and technician employers on May 7–8 at the SCE Energy Education Center in Irwindale, CA. Those who successfully complete the course will be certified to conduct lighting controls acceptance tests as required by the new 2013 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6) set to take effect July 1.
A one-day symposium focusing on cost-effective, water-wise and energy-efficient solutions for K–12 facilities in.
Join energy efficiency experts Gina Rodda, Kelly Cunningham and Tom Herbert on November 12, 13 or 14 for “Decoding Lighting," a free 90-minute interactive online event to discuss and decode new Title 24 indoor lighting controls requirements for nonresidential buildings. Compliance triggers and paperwork will be included in the topics covered.
