Appropriate lighting impacts occupant comfort, safety, security and productivity—it's important to get it right. With the industry moving forward quickly, this webcast will get you up-to-speed on the relevant LED technical and cost consideration information you need to know so that you can make an informed purchasing decision. We'll explore LED cost trends, life considerations, glare, color shift and flicker, as well as LED light levels, energy consumption, preferred alternatives and Focus on Energy lighting incentives available in Wisconsin.
With so much to consider, deciding between LEDs or alternatives is not an easy task. Just because the cost of LEDs has plummeted while efficiencies have improved doesn't mean LEDs are always the best option. We'll review what manufacturing standards really mean, what is considered an acceptable incidence of failure and best applications for LEDs in interior and exterior large industrial and commercial settings.
AS A RESULT OF THIS WEBINAR, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:
Discuss the cost trends and other considerations when purchasing LED products.
Summarize various lighting standards used to assess product performance.
Define the basic types of large commercial, outdoor lighting used in roadway, parking garage and parking lot illumination.
Explain the light source improvements that have emerged within the last year.
Discuss the differences between light source life and energy usage.
Communicate about alternative lighting solutions with lighting vendors.
WHO SHOULD WATCH?
Architects, engineers, building owners, lighting and electrical contractors, energy program design and implementation professionals, lighting designers, commercial building energy advocates, interior designers, property managers, facility managers, utility representatives and anyone interested in industrial and commercial LED applications.
