This course looks at the results of a recent report called Let There Be Daylight, the result of retrofitting daylight controls in New York City office buildings. Lighting is the largest electric end use of a building and New York City’s new lighting laws will drive massive retrofit activity in its commercial buildings. The course discusses the process and challenges of measuring and verifying lighting and shading controls, the energy and cost benefits of daylighting, deploying daylighting technologies and components, and the role of operations and building management in the success of such systems. Wrong ways to daylight a building such as over-glazing it, ignoring shading and glare control, and skipping automated controls are examined along with GSA’s Proving Ground data that looks at its own energy savings from lighting controls, along with case studies such as the New York Times Headquarters Building and the Time Warner Center retrofit, which reduced its lighting energy by 55 percent.
This course will discuss lighting in LEED v4 and introduce new credits, metrics, and methods of compliance for LEED lighting-related credits.
LED lighting is gaining in popularity but there are still some limitations of LEDs, including their higher cost, limited applications and controls compatibility; because LED systems work differently from traditional fixtures dimming is often a challenge. This course will help you understand how to work around these challenges and how to interpret new energy codes as they apply to LED lighting.
It's undeniable that the lighting industry is in the midst of dramatic change. Today's smart systems now respond to changing conditions to deliver the right kind of light for the current task when needed. All while consuming less energy and maintenance. See why Acuity Brands is the right partner for your lighting options.

Prismatic daylighting has been around for more than a century and can provide the best quality light without hot spots and glare. Correctly specifying these passive units allows building owners and facility managers to turn off their electric lights for an average of eight hours per day.
Today, more and more demands are being placed on lighting systems, including better performance, better energy use, better light quality, and simpler management. Read about the first and only high performance LED lighting fully integrated with a robust digital controls platform.
Daylighting has become one of the fastest growing green building strategies in the last few years due to its simple application, significant cost savings and its ability to create healthy, enjoyable work and living spaces. This course is designed to give an overview of how to achieve sustainable design goals with tubular daylighting devices.
