Schneider Electric offers a free whitepaper addressing measurement and verification of lighting systems. Measurement and verification (M&V) defines a process used to track energy performance of equipment, systems and buildings, enabling evaluation and comparison. M&V plans have become an essential element in many LEED Projects as well as many public projects. The whitepaper, authored by […]

Last month at LightingControlsAssociation.org, we published an article about how to establish daylight zones in sidelighted (windowed) building spaces. We looked at an industry rule of thumb and then how the latest generation of energy codes and standards address it. In review, when designing an energy-saving daylight harvesting control system, a critical decision is to […]
When designing an energy-saving daylight harvesting control system, a critical decision is to establish lighting control zones, identifying lighting loads to be separately controlled. Before this decision can be made, however, we must first determine the daylight zones. A daylight zone, also called the daylight area (expressed in square feet), is defined by the ASHRAE/IES […]
The Lighting Controls Association is pleased to announce that it has updated EE201: Introduction to Lighting Control, a popular offering in the Association’s Education Express series of online distance education courses about lighting controls. The course, authored by Craig DiLouie, principal of ZING Communications, Inc. and LCA’s Education Director, provides an introduction to daylight harvesting […]
As demand for lighting controls continues to grow, advanced solutions are becoming increasingly specified while also becoming increasingly sophisticated. This increasing sophistication translates to greater owner benefit but can also pose greater risk of design and installation mistakes. In a perfect world, designers create clear and detailed lighting control requirements that are easily installed by […]
