Registration Now Open for DesignLights Consortium’s 2024 Controls Summit

Convening October 15 and 16 in Milwaukee, this year’s DLC Controls Summit is a forum for networking, problem-solving and collaborating on ways to increase market penetration and integration of energy-saving NLCs

MEDFORD, MA – May 6, 2024 – Registration is now open for the DesignLights Consortium’s (DLC) two-day Controls Summit in October. Convening in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, “Integration for the Future” will provide opportunities for utility executives, energy efficiency specialists, lighting controls manufacturers and installers, decarbonization advocates and other industry stakeholders to discuss the latest trends in networked lighting controls (NLC) and collaborate on ways to eliminate barriers to wider market adoption.

The Summit will take place from Tuesday, October 15, through Wednesday, October 16, at The Westin Hotel, Milwaukee. Interested participants can register and make hotel reservations here . An Early Bird rate is available through September 15, 2024. (Please note that, since space is limited, registration is restricted to no more than two attendees per company or organization. Please contact to request additional registrations.)

NLCs have had low market penetration despite research that shows they can increase energy savings of commercial lighting projects by an average 49 percent beyond LED savings alone (with even greater potential when paired with HVAC). The DLC Controls Summit will gather professionals who design, promote, install, and incentivize NLCs to collaborate on ways to get NLCs into more commercial buildings of all types and sizes. Attendees will also have educational and networking opportunities. See the full meeting agenda here .

“We look forward to collaborating with our members and other stakeholders in Milwaukee this October, as we share information and ideas about unlocking the valuable potential of networked lighting controls to save energy, reduce carbon and enable a suite of smart building functions,” DLC Executive Director and CEO Christina Halfpenny said.

Those encouraged to attend the Summit, include:

  • DLC members
  • Utility energy efficiency program staff and efficiency program implementers
  • Lighting controls manufacturers and representatives
  • Lighting controls installers and other trade allies
  • Decarbonization advocates
