About this Course

The IES offers Educational Webinars throughout the year, purposefully spanning a broad range of topics and speaker expertise. This course was a live webinar, now available as an archived webinar and CEU course.

Description: Within the last year, we’ve witnessed states, provinces, and cities across North America update their building energy codes and standards to further energy efficiency and conservation as well as construction practices. This presentation will review the most important and recent code changes as it deals with lighting and lighting controls. Most importantly, will review best practice lighting power and control design application for multiple common space types, while avoiding common code mistakes and misunderstandings reducing the confusion or challenges for lighting designers and engineering professionals when designing building lighting power and controls to meet codes.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this course learners will be able to...

1. Identify changes in the motives and dialogue of energy codes, and how these changes impact lighting practice.  
2. Describe Lighting Power Allowance and learn about the downward trend.
3. Apply Interior and Exterior Lighting & Controls strategies including occupancy based control, daylighting controls, lighting reduction, etc. in lighting design practice.
4. Identify "Compliance Help" resources including recommended practices, manuals, code & design education.
