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.
Presented by Bernhard Goesmann at an online webinar for Better Buildings Alliance—This presentation includes information about energy efficiency legislation, exterior sensor types and technologies, testing efforts, field demonstrations, and next steps.
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.
Phase 2 of the UC Davis Smart Lighting Initiative will upgrade lighting in offices, labs, classrooms, corridors, and other spaces in selected buildings built in 1985 or later. Implementation of energy-efficient light sources, vacancy sensors and lighting control systems will reduce energy use by an estimated 5.5 million kilowatt-hours annually, saving the campus about $475,000, according to Scott Arntzen, senior project manager with Design and Construction Management.

Join UC Davis representatives, including staff from CLTC and WCEC, at this year's CHESC event hosted by UC Santa Barbara. Visit booth #203 to learn about lighting and HVAC innovations tested through the State Partnership for Energy Efficient Demonstrations (SPEED). Information on incentives and project financing options will also be available.
PIER sponsored research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) has focused on the combination of occupancy-based lighting controls and dynamically turnable light sources to create intelligent, bi-level luminaires for parking area applications.
The State Partnership for Energy Efficient Demonstrations (SPEED) program drives the market adoption of energy efficient technologies. Managed through the California Institute for Energy and Environment (CIEE), SPEED has conducted more than 100 demonstrations and other technology-transfer projects across the state, showcasing the benefits of best practices and state-of-the-art solutions.
Lighting accounts for about a quarter of California’s electricity use, and installing energy-efficient lighting can lead to significant energy, maintenance, carbon, and economic savings, according to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). In September 2010, the CPUC adopted a plan to achieve a 60–80% reduction in statewide electrical lighting consumption by 2020.
Demonstrations on UC and CSU campuses have proven that SPEED technologies offer reliable, cost-effective solutions for achieving deep energy savings. Effective July 1, 2014, many SPEED technologies will be required under California’s 2013 Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards.
