    New Ideas in LED Lighting (Print Course)

    This learning unit will discuss the benefits of LED lighting when compared to other traditional bulb types and will provide a general overview of how new technologies allow for greater control of LED fixtures, light quality, and lumens. Architects will also learn how LED fixtures are including new options and benefits specifically intended to create unique and functional interior lighting designs. This learning unit will also explore the next generation of LED fixtures made possible by innovative contemporary designs, improved secondary optics, and wireless technology, and OLEDs. Finally, this learning unit will glimpse into the future, exploring developing technologies such as laser diodes and battery free sensors. Enroll

    Let There Be Daylight: Deploying Advanced Daylight Controls

    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.

    The Light Stuff: Energy-efficient Lighting for a Healing Environment

    This course looks at the advancements and opportunities for providing energy-efficient lighting in a 24/7 environment such as a hospital. The course discusses concepts such as harvesting daylighting, which looks at the amount of lighting in a space to determine when electrical light doesn’t need to be on; tones of white light; color temperature; spectral power distribution; and color rendering of white light. The healing and emotional power of lighting is examined through various case studies such as the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, Bethesda, Maryland, a rehab center for solders suffering traumatic brain injury who are easily disoriented triggered by light, the Loyola Bone Marrow Treatment Facility Renovation, Maywood, Illinois; and the Banner Page Hospital Emergency Department addition, Page, Arizona. Lighting solutions are proposed such as minimal interior contrast, no point lighting, creating wayfinding with sconces, and using passive light. Enroll

    Lichen and the Rock: An Integrated Response to Daylight

    Daylighting professionals explain daylighting design principles, criteria and metrics you can use to optimize daylight use for your projects. Specific examples from projects on the University of Washington campus demonstrate tools and techniques used to analyze, manipulate and maximize daylight performance in different types of spaces. They found their inspiration from an unlikely source: lichen growing on a rock. Enroll

    The Science of Circadian Lighting

    Expert panelists define circadian lighting and provide insight as to how it impacts the human body. Referencing the WELL Building Standard®, an evidence-based performance standard for measuring and certifying building features that impact occupant health and wellness, learn how to design for circadian lighting in different environments. What does a circadian smart space look like? Are there tradeoffs? Panelists will present examples of technologies that help accomplish these metrics, and show images of completed projects that have implemented circadian-smart designs. Enroll

    Measuring Circadian Light in Buildings: Findings and Actions

    Lighting design for office buildings has focused largely on providing sufficient illumination for visual performance, minimal glare, good color rendering and energy efficiency. Little attention has been given to understanding how light affects the non-visual systems, including circadian regulation that affects sleep and mood. This course will discuss basic information about the importance of light and dark for entertaining circadian rhythms will be discussed. Findings from the field evaluation will also be presented with some “lessons learned” on how to maximize daylight and electric lighting in a space to increase circadian stimulation. Enroll

    Challenges with LED Controllability and Changing Energy Codes (Print Version)

    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. Enroll
