DOE Announces Webcast Describing High-Efficiency Troffer Lighting Specification for April 19, 2012

On April 19, the U.S. Department of Energy will host a 90-minute live webcast on a new lighting specification that sets performance requirements for high-efficiency LED and fluorescent troffer products in 2’x4′, 2’x2′, and 1’x4′ configurations.

Developed by DOE’s Commercial Building Energy Alliances (CBEAs), High-Efficiency Troffer Lighting Specification v3.0 was released in February and expands on an earlier version that only addressed 2’x2′ troffers.

If designed and installed properly, high-efficiency troffers that meet the new specification can realize energy savings of 15-45% on a one-for-one basis compared to traditional fluorescent troffers, and up to 75% if integrated with dimming, occupant, or daylight controls. In addition to the direct energy cost savings, maintenance costs are reduced because of the need for fewer and less frequent lamp replacements.

In the webcast, Jeff McCullough and Michael Myer of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will describe the technical, design, and performance aspects of the specification. Kevin Powell of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), who served as CBEA chairperson for the project, will discuss opportunities for high-efficiency troffers in GSA facilities and provide an update on troffer lighting demonstration projects underway at GSA.

The webcast will begin promptly at 1:00 p.m. ET and will include a 60-minute presentation, followed by a 30-minute question-and-answer session with attendees.

The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) is presenting a symposium on the role and effects of lighting on older adults to be held in Washington, DC, March 6-7, 2012.

The two-day symposium is designed to disseminate the latest research about the special lighting needs of older adults with aging eyes. The researchers delivering the presentations will address the implications for proper lighting and its effects on vision and health. Topics related to vision include susceptibility to glare, visibility of tasks, prevention of falls, and quality of life (e.g., independent and varying levels of assisted living). Coverage of health will address sleep, depression, and circadian rhythm.

The conference is directed at lighting designers, builders and facilities managers of single and congregate residential housing, builders of commercial buildings, educators, lighting manufacturers, architects, associations and government agencies of all levels serving older adults.

After six years of detailed renovations of the Jacob K. Javits Center, New York Governor has proposed razing it and turning it over to development of other commercial and residential property. The new convention center would be built in Jamaica, Queens.

Looks like LIGHTFAIR is staying in Philadelphia, at least for 2013, and now possibly beyond that.

The New York Times has the story here.
