In 2012, UC Davis upgraded its exterior lighting as part of the university’s Smart Lighting Initiative. Wall packs on campus, like other exterior lighting fixtures, were retrofitted with dimmable LED sources, motion sensors, and wireless controls. This allowed the units to be incorporated into an adaptive campuswide lighting control system. The system offers an intelligent, networked approach to lighting and energy management, with improved lighting quality and optimal energy efficiency.
CLTC has partnered with Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) to offer classes on lighting for retail and residential spaces. The classes are specifically designed to help contractors, engineers, designers, and other building professionals meet—or exceed—California's Title 24 building energy efficiency standards. The courses will explore how to apply best practices in compliance with new and existing code requirements, and they will provide technology updates on energy-efficient lamps and ballasts, as well as advanced sensors and controls.
Best practices and lighting designs to help builders comply with California’s 2008 Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards.
NOTE: California's 2013 Title 24, Part 6 standards took effect July 1, 2014.
