Gallery Talk: Sensing the Future Through Lighting

Join the Building Energy Exchange for our new Gallery Talk series, which marries technical presentations from industry experts with the interactive content of our Lighting the Future advanced lighting exhibit. These lunch-and-learn sessions will guide attendees on configuring, selecting and installing the most advanced lighting, shading, and control systems available, and how those systems can maximized convenience, savings, and flexibility.

By embracing the “internet of things” movement, advanced lighting control systems can harness real-time data on occupancy, temperature, and daylight to control lighting levels as well as communicating with other systems like energy management, vertical integration, and room scheduling. This talk will discuss how an advanced sensor network can capture energy savings and improve facility management through data collection.

This is the final session in our four-part Gallery Talk series which will utilize our Lighting the Future interactive exhibit as a classroom. The sessions will also draw lessons and data from our Living Lab Demonstration Project, a joint program with Lawrence Berkeley National Lab which deploys and monitors advanced lighting and shading systems in working offices to document the components and processes that lead to successful lighting and shading retrofits.

NOTE: You must register by June 7 at 5pm.

A moderated Q&A discussion will follow the presentations, and a guided tour of the exhibit will round out the event. Lunch will be provided.

Lighting the Future‘s gallery talk series features four lunch-and-learn programs that focus on the integrated controls, shading, and fixture technologies in each section of the Living Lab Demonstration Project. The Living Lab Demonstration Project has carefully documented the selection, procurement, and installation process to identify challenges and solutions to scaling up retrofit projects. The Lighting the Future explains how advanced technologies can save energy and money and showcases the systems installed in the Living Lab Demonstration Project.
