As a result of this course, you will be able to:
Who should attend?
Building owners, lighting retrofit and electrical contractors, energy program design and implementation professionals, lighting designers and consultants, commercial building energy advocates, interior designers, property managers, facility managers, manufacturers, dealers and distributors, utility representatives, architects, engineers and anyone with basic knowledge and interest in lighting retrofits.
LED lighting has changed the way we approach lighting retrofits. LED technologies will last a decade or more, so how can you make the right decisions today that will ensure great performance years into the future? This course will help you balance today’s options with their long-term benefits.
Most contractors and facilities managers are very comfortable with the “low-hanging fruit” types of lighting retrofit: T12s, high pressure sodium and standard metal halide, retrofits are usually a slam dunk. But with existing T8, T5, T5 high output and ceramic metal halide systems, it is important you address basic soft savings, the benefits of Human Centric Lighting design, performance certifications and advanced financial tools to receive project approval. We will help you make that business case.
This course will explore types of LEDs that operate with existing ballasts, direct line voltage and dedicated drivers and how these technologies compare with LED lightbars, fixture kits and new fixtures. You will also review considerations when determining if basic lighting controls are cost-effective for your application or if advanced lighting controls should be considered.
