Lighting controls are one of the simplest solutions to reducing energy usage and are required in the most commonly-used building energy codes including IECC. The requirements have become more complex over time, keeping pace with rapidly-changing lighting control technologies. Planning for current lighting control requirement trends ensures that facilities utilize current technologies to their fullest potential while remaining well-positioned to adapt for future needs and growth.
- Demystify lighting control requirements for 2018 IECC and how the requirements have evolved with each revision.
- Develop systematic strategies that consider individual sections of 2018 IECC to consistently provide compliant designs.
- Identify how to design scalable lighting control systems that meet code compliance.
- Review real world applications that meet code compliance for 2018 IECC.
