Pacific Northwest National Laboratory staff who lead the U.S. DOE’s Better Buildings Lighting Systems Technology Research Team invited viewers to join and hear from Integrated Lighting Campaign Participants who were recognized for their integrated lighting systems. Shanna Olson of IMEG Corp. and Adam Hutchinson of Denver Water will share insights and recommendations related to their installations a year after being Recognized. Attendees experienced an interactive session and provided input on how DOE resources can help more buildings install systems like these and provide the most valuable impact.

Over the past year there has been increased awareness of the critical role that buildings play in our personal health & wellbeing. As we build back many are now rethinking about how to approach health in commercial spaces. Learn from experts at the University of Washington’s Integrated Design Lab and the University of Oregon’s Energy Studies in Buildings Lab as they discuss how Luminaire Level Lighting Controls (LLLC) have the potential to revolutionize how we monitor and respond to environmental factors that impact human health.

UV lighting has become a hot topic with the pandemic as a means to disinfect buildings and surfaces from viruses and bacteria. Mark Lien, Industry Relations Manager of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), presents on germicidal ultraviolet (UV) lighting. Mark separates some of the facts from fiction and highlights key safety considerations in applying this beneficial technology. There's also an update on two new DOE lighting initiatives: the Integrated Lighting Campaign, and the IoT-Upgradeable Lighting Challenge.

Part 1: High-Impact Envelope Strategies –The Building Envelope Campaign covered a metric that can measure your building envelope performance and can aid in design decisions, success stories were also covered. Part 2: Integrated Lighting Strategies – The Integrated Lighting Campaign discusses how integrating your lighting system with other building systems can enable deeper whole-building energy savings and non-energy benefits with significant value-add. A summary of those that submitted for recognition is also included.

This webinar is for building or facility owners and managers interested in tapping into the benefits of advanced lighting systems and/or the integration of lighting with other building systems. Learn how to access practical resources, gain access to technical assistance and guidance, and receive recognition for your advanced lighting projects. Speakers introduced new recognition categories and explained how to successfully submit your project for recognition. Join other industry professionals like you who are using advanced lighting to improve energy efficiency, operations, and occupant comfort.

The Integrated Lighting Campaign (ILC) confers recognition each year to organizations that are helping drive the adoption of advanced lighting systems and the integration of lighting with other buildings and business systems. Supporters (e.g., utilities, designers, ESCOs, energy efficiency organizations, and manufacturers) help the campaign identify and recruit exemplary projects that may be eligible for recognition from DOE. Learn about the new recognition categories for Participants and opportunities available to Supporters, including recognition available as an Exemplary Supporter or DEI Champion and how your products and/or services may be featured in a future case study.

The Integrated Lighting Campaign’s first year is complete, and the projects that have been recognized are nothing short of exemplary! The innovation that our participants demonstrated with the implementation of these projects is a notable reduction in energy use, increased occupant comfort, the collection of useful data to support business decisions, streamlining/reduction of maintenance efforts, among others. Watch to learn more about the great ideas and advanced technologies that these leading organizations have put into practice.
