LRC Announces New Webinar Series for 2020

LDS LRC 400

Dec 16, 2019

The Lighting Research Center (LRC) is presenting a series of monthly webinars on a variety of leading-edge topics in lighting. The live, one-hour webinars will include information on the latest research in lighting, and will be interactive to allow participants to ask questions of LRC researchers about each of the topics presented. The webinars will be held from 1:00 to 2:00 PM Eastern Time from January to May 2020.

Webinar Topics and Schedule

Lighting Controls: What works? Lessons from the Field

January 14, 2020 | 1:00 – 2:00 PM ET

Presenters: Jennifer Brons, Jean Paul Freyssinier, Dan Frering

Lighting control systems have become increasingly complex in the past few years, with claims of systems that are simple to use, while providing tremendous energy savings. But what should one believe? This webinar will present the results of three recent field studies of lighting control systems of varying complexity. These will include a connected control system in an office building; a luminaire-integrated control system installed in hallways of a high-rise multifamily building; and a bi-level control system in a parking lot application. Presenters will review information on system set-up, commissioning, and operation of the controls; user acceptance; energy savings; economics; and other factors.

Light and Health: Cutting through the Noise

February 4, 2020 | 1:00 – 2:00 PM ET

Presenters: Mariana Figueiro, Mark Rea

There is growing interest about the effects that light and lighting can have on human health and wellbeing. However, there is substantial confusion about how to apply the science of light and health when selecting lighting systems and applying them in a lighting design or application. This presentation will include information on the science involved in how lighting affects human health. It will also present guidance on how to apply these findings in lighting applications to improve the health and wellbeing of people. “Tailored lighting, when properly designed to deliver the correct amount of light at the right time, can positively impact health and wellbeing. We have seen firsthand the many benefits of lighting, but it is important to get the right lighting to see the positive effects.” –Dr. Mariana Figueiro

Outdoor Lighting: Making Uniformity a Priority for Security Lighting

March 10, 2020 | 1:00 – 2:00 PM ET

Presenters: Jennifer Brons, John Bullough

We often light streets, parking lots and other outdoor locations to help reinforce a sense of safety and personal security. In recent years there have been many discussions about the role of the spectral distribution (color) of outdoor lighting for visual effectiveness and energy efficiency. These discussions are based upon the obvious differences between yellow high pressure sodium lamps and white light emitting diode sources. This webinar will help participants understand that spectrum is a relatively unimportant factor compared to the uniformity of lighting when it comes to making people feel safe and secure outdoors, and will help them demand not only better standards for outdoor lighting, but better products for achieving those standards.
 

Lighting: Red, White, and Blue

April 14, 2020 | 1:00 – 2:00 PM ET

Presenters: Andrew Bierman, Mariana Figueiro, Mark Rea

When we think of lighting, we typically only think of white light. However, research is providing new information on the potential impacts of both short and long wavelengths of light. This webinar will present information on the impacts of both red and blue light on such issues as improving alertness for people, circadian entrainment, and even preventing diseases in plants. Presenters will also discuss the issue of blue light hazard.

UV: Beyond Red, White, and Blue

May 12, 2020 | 1:00 – 2:00 PM ET

Presenters: Andrew Bierman, Ziggy Majumdar, Mark Rea

There is growing interest in the application of Ultraviolet (UV) energy for purposes ranging from disinfection in hospitals and other healthcare settings to preventing or combating several types of plant diseases in controlled-environment agriculture and in field production. This webinar will review recent research on the use of UV for a variety of applications. It will also provide information on UV safety and photodegradation issues.
