Task tuning—the dimming of lights to create levels appropriate for the activities in a space—can save energy without sacrificing occupant satisfaction. Why? Because most commercial spaces, for a variety of reasons, are over-lit.

We will share proper task tuning techniques and discuss the results of our research study, including verified energy savings and how task tuning could be included in utility Conservation Improvement Program offerings in Minnesota.

We will also provide a high level characterization of the types of buildings for which task tuning is appropriate.

The final report has been posted and the fact sheet will be available soon.

Who should watch?
Building designers, lighting designers and electrical engineers, architects, energy modelers, building owners, general contractors, energy efficiency specialists, commissioning authorities, and anyone involved in the building design process.
