“Breaking Barriers to Integrated Daylighting and Controls” Webinar
Advanced Buildings® invites you to a one-hour webinar exploring new solutions for designing and implementing integrated daylighting and photocontrols solutions for high performance spaces.
In commercial buildings, the integration of electric lighting and controls systems with daylight performance is typically the largest energy savings measure associated with daylighting. Integrated controls hold huge promise for significant untapped energy cost savings and carbon reduction, reducing operating costs and peak building electric demand. So why aren't they being put to work at the rate you might expect?
Join Barb Hamilton of New Buildings Institute, Christopher Meek from the Seattle Integrated Design Lab and Richard Yancey, Director of Green Light New York, Inc. (GLNY) for this one-hour webinar on the state of integrated daylighting and controls in the lighting industry, design tools to facilitate this practice and new controls research to help drive demand for this crucial element of advanced lighting design. You'll learn about:
- Current industry trends, barriers and potential solutions for driving demand and implementation of integrated daylighting and controls.
- The Advanced Buildings design simulation tool, the Daylighting Pattern Guide (DPG) developed to help facilitate the integration of proven daylighting strategies into a variety of commercial buildings across climate types.
- A new development phase of the DPG that will use climate-specific energy performance data and zone energy use to determine the relative effectiveness of specific integrated lighting design control strategies.
- Preliminary results of a collaborative study between GLNY, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the NYC Mayor's office on the potential impact daylighting controls could have in NYC commercial office spaces.
