Lighting can shape an environment, set a mood, and enhance overall well-being, yet stringent energy codes are the driving force in the lighting industry. How is this impacting design and technology? Learn about the increasing complexity of lighting energy codes, advances in lamp and control technology, and design strategies to balance an energy efficient lighting system with the best lighting quality.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the factors driving energy codes to become more stringent.
  2. Examine the growing importance of lighting control systems due to the increased complexity of energy codes.
  3. Explain how advances in lamp technology such as LEDs are shaping how buildings are being designed.
  4. Describe strategies for designing high quality and energy efficient lighting
