Advanced Lighting Presentation and Workshop
Alaska Center for Appropriate Technology is hosting two one day workshops on advanced lighting. Topics include effective lighting design, equipment selection, daylight harvesting, controls and more. These workshops are designed to give an in depth training on how we can use lighting to be more efficient and save on lighting costs. Workshops will cover in depth explanations of lighting systems, i.e. Induction, LED, T8/T5, cold Cathode, and how to decide which system is best for your application. Also learn how to identify inefficient lighting systems and how to make them more efficient. Understand VEL (Visibly Effective Lumens) and the differences within different lighting systems. Learn how watts no longer translate with efficacy values.
Instructors will be local and national experts including Nancy Clanton, PE and LEED AP from Boulder, Colorado and Dave Inman, of Red Mountain Lighting , Mesa Arizona.
