UC Davis – The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) has been created at the University of California, Davis, to develop energy-efficient lighting with market-friendly design. CLTC was established as a collaborative effort between the California Energy Commission and UC Davis, with support by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association.
NEMA – The University of California, Davis, has announced the opening of the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC), established to develop energy-efficient lighting with market-friendly design. The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) provided seed money to begin this collaborative effort, ultimately joining forces with the California Energy Commission and UC Davis, with some support provided by the U.S. Department of Energy.
TMC News – As a way to more quickly bring the latest energy-saving light emitting diode (LED) lighting concepts to consumers and businesses, OptiLED, Inc. announced today it will partner with CLTC on a number of development and demonstration projects.
University Office of the President – The California Lighting Technology Center at the University of California, Davis works in partnership with industry, end users and others to improve illumination technology.
PG&E—LED retail lighting showcase allows boutique owners to see, firsthand, how LED lamps perform in a realistic store setting.
CLTC Co-Director Konstantinos Papamichael presents on a CITRIS project CLTC undertook in collaboration with UC Berkeley. The advanced algorithms developed and demonstrated through this project will continually adjust electric light output based on real-time and historical data, gathered through both local and remote data streams.
CLTC – The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC), a research, development, and demonstration facility at the University of California, Davis, has installed more than 100 demonstrations of energy-efficient lighting since the Center’s inception in 2004. The wide range of demonstrations has been installed at University of California, California State University, California Community College campuses, and state and federal buildings throughout California in an effort to prove energy-efficient technology and report the findings to the public through case studies.
UC Davis – Michael Siminovitch, director of the California Lighting Technology Center, has been named the first Arthur H. Rosenfeld Chair in Energy Efficiency at the University of California, Davis. The designation honors both Siminovitch, a professor of design whose work is revolutionizing lighting throughout California, and Rosenfeld, considered the “father of energy efficiency.”
CLTC – Lighting control manufacturer WattStopper has launched a breakthrough advance in electric lighting control technology for daylight harvesting. The LMLS- 600 dual-loop photosensor control is the first device on the market to combine open-loop and closed-loop photo sensing strategies, greatly improving the accuracy and reliability of daylight sensing in spaces with skylights. The device is the result of research and development conducted in the labs of the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC), part of the University of California, Davis.
Ubiquitous Communication by Light (UC-Light) is an emerging technology that uses visible light to perform wireless machine-to-machine communication. The mechanism at work with UC-Light is similar to the infrared technology used in TV remote controls, but UC-Light uses visible white light from modulated light emitting diodes (LEDs). Visible light communication (VLC) is potentially cheaper than conventional wireless communications because VLC can use pre-existing LED luminaires for communication purposes.
