About the Event

Please note that this is a past event.

The world of lighting design is changing rapidly. Alongside continual technological advancements, the codes and laws that govern the design and construction of lighting systems are being progressively improved. New laws, stricter codes, and new Department of Buildings filing requirements now effect most all New York City spaces.

Green Light New York has developed a concise and vital three-part series of presentations on how to meet and exceed these new lighting requirements. Offered in 90 minute segments, the presentations cover 1) the laws and regulations themselves, 2) strategies for applying the new requirements to lighting retrofit projects, and 3) demystifying lighting controls. The courses have been developed with the assistance of an extremely knowledgeable advisory group and have been very well received in previous deliveries.

Instructor: Moreno Tagliapetra

Lighting Retrofits begins at 11:00AM and Lighting Controls begins at 1:30PM.

The instructor of New Lighting Regulations will cover the following:
- Overview of Greener Greater Building Plan Lighting Upgrade law
- Overview of the NYC Energy Code lighting requirements
 - Laws, code, and compliance;

- Strategies to meet or exceed code

- Sources of funding, rebates & incentives

Each course provides 1.5 AIA HSW/SD learning units. Coffee and light refreshments will be served.
