Winner of the top award for Research, Publications, Software, and Measuring Devices at Lightfair International 2014, the IES's RP-5-13: Recommended Practice for Daylighting Buildings includes the most up-to-date technological solutions and data for addressing the challenges of daylighting while maximizing its benefits.
These presentation slides cover best practices for residential lighting design. The material is designed to help builders meet, or exceed, California's 2008 Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards. It includes background and policy, common lighting terms and technology updates, guidance in residential lighting design, a step-by-step overview of the Title 24 compliance process, and additional resources.
LD+A – California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) has continued research over the past year to develop and commercialize a next-generation daylight harvesting system with automatic commissioning and increased reliability through the use of two photo sensors. CLTC is working with Wal-Mart to demonstrate the product protytype in a retail store and with Watt Stopper/Legrand to commercialize the system.
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.
