Sustainability goals relating to lighting can be a daunting challenge to achieve. With the rapid advancement of controls and fixture technology, it's important to have a plan. The three main areas of focus should be controls, fixture selection and, most importantly, lighting design. It's the possible achieve sustainability and efficiency gains through the selection of the latest technology in fixtures and controls, but the overall lighting design should be considered first, as it will impact fixture and control selection.
Sware Derua will speak on the efficiency gains through design and how they impact fixture and control selections. This discussion will enlighten the audience through the exposure to many design considerations, so that when presented with the task of creating a project utilizing sustainable methods, they will know where to start, what to look for, and how to apply a system approach to achieve the greatest benefit.
