Utility Administrators: Learn About Lighting
The LRC is planning its first lighting seminar designed especially for utilities and public agencies responsible for energy conservation programs. Administrators and personnel are invited to attend the jam-packed two-day seminar titled, “What you always wanted to know about lighting but didn’t know who to ask,” scheduled for early May. The seminar will include topics such as:
Separating myth from reality on lighting technologies:
- T5 versus T8
- Are super T8s really super?
- Can full-spectrum lighting deliver on its promises?
Where and how does daylighting fit into new building design and construction?
- How do they work?
- Where do they belong?
- Do they really save energy?
Solid-state lighting and LEDs:
- What works today?
- What does the future really hold for this technology?
Using lighting as a distributed resource to control demand on utility systems, transmission lines, substations and circuits.
- Designing better lighting
- Exploring new technologies
