July 14th: The Value of Connected Lighting, 10:00-11:00 am PT, Register
The commercial lighting market has seen significant shifts, first with the proliferation of LEDs, and now as controls become more sophisticated. As controls progress from a wall switch with a manual on-off control to more advanced controls that incorporate multi-feature sensors and luminaires embedded with controls, lack of understanding, interoperability issues, and often an unclear value proposition has slowed the adoption of connected lighting systems. This webinar will examine the key trends in the connected lighting market, the benefits connected systems can provide, and the role of energy efficiency, sustainability, integration and interoperability, and codes and standards. Krystal Maxwell, a senior research analyst covering lighting efficiency at Guidehouse Insights, will lead a discussion with Levin Nock, senior technical manager at DesignLights Consortium; Chris Wolgamott, senior product manager at Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance; and Peter Jacobson, lighting specialist at Con Edison, on the challenges faced by building owners and facility managers and how key stakeholders—including facility managers, utilities, standards and quality organizations, and technology firms—can work together to accelerate the adoption of connected lighting systems.
