a group of people watching a presenter

Energy Trust and Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) are working together to present a free training webinar on new compliant lighting code requirements.

The new code requirements make compliant lighting more efficient than ever before, which comes with both opportunities and unique challenges. Complex controls can be costly and time-consuming, and delivering above-code energy savings may seem impossible. Offering a streamlined path to meet these challenges is Luminaire Level Lighting Controls (LLLC), an emerging technology with integrated sensors in every fixture.

Hear from our expert panelists, who will unpack each area of code compliance, from occupancy and daylight harvesting to strategies for delivering above-code energy savings. Attendees will learn how this simple and reliable technology helps satisfy commercial energy code requirements and the knowledgeable panelists will address specific questions in a follow-up discussion and Q&A session.

Each panelist will bring a unique perspective and has prior experience with LLLC capabilities and implementation. Read more about the panelists’ expansive experience below.
