Strategies for Successful Deployment of LED Streetlight Upgrades


Public works staff, transportation directors and engineers, and municipal sustainability leaders are encouraged to attend this in-depth workshop on strategies for successful LED retrofit projects. Over 50 representatives from local agencies, including the City of Oakland, Foster City, San Bruno, and San Jose, will share their insights and experiences. Topics covered will include financing options, ways to engage stakeholders, and factors to consider when purchasing products. A roundtable discussion of best practices for timely action will also be on the agenda.

California is embarking on some of the boldest building retrofit programs in the country to achieve its pioneering climate goals set by the state’s legislature and voters.

UC Davis undergraduate student Thao Tran is the recipient of a Robert E. Thunen Memorial Scholarship from the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES). The scholarship will fund research she began last year in Professor Siminovitch's Designing with Light course (DES 136B).

“I’m interested in how lighting impacts health and wellness,” says Tran.  “And I want to learn more about how to execute that in a way that also saves energy.”
