ABOUT THE SESSION

Human-centric lighting has the potential to help solve one of the largest problems facing energy providers as we transition to renewable sources. Late afternoon peaks - known as the "Duck-Shaped Curve" - are becoming a significant concern. In the afternoon, solar generation starts to taper off just as loads are increasing, creating a curve that looks like a swimming duck. Using advanced controls and light fixtures, lighting can help provide circadian entrainment while reducing late afternoon energy peaks.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Basic principles of circadian entrainment with implications to human health.
  • Trends in transitioning to renewable sources – benefits and challenges in the current state.
  • Lighting as an energy consumer compared to other energy consumers, and why lighting is important to manage through controls.
  • Putting together lighting and energy concerns to deliver the highest value for the consumer.
