Lighting projects that involve updating CFL lighting systems should consider all viable retrofit options. When retrofitting between CFL four-pin lamps and LED solutions, it is important to observe safety precautions and consider performance variables.
CLTC is a trusted resource for up-to-date lighting information and practical guidance on energy-efficient building technologies. We would like to introduce our new Lighting Best Practices Series with the release of two publications:
The potential to reduce energy consumption in existing and commercial buildings is enormous. On average, 30% of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Lighting has a large potential for energy savings for any U.S. building end use, with a significant fraction of that potential coming from lighting controls.
CLTC, in partnership with Southern California Edison, completed a project portfolio from 2014-2018 to assess controls, lighting, and daylighting technologies and their potential for commercial applications. The projects have elements of market assessment, EM&V, and selected demonstrations.
The project focus is on evaluating the following technologies:
8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Energy Education Center - Irwindale
6090 N. Irwindale Ave.

This intermediate level class is for energy consultants who will learn about identifying key nonresidential building standards and compliance options for new construction, alterations and additions, compliance related documents, and the importance of staying up to date on compliance codes.
