About the webinar

Building owners are becoming more aware of and interested in selecting LEDs because of their energy efficiency and long lifespan. Good lighting enhances building design, conserves energy, and increases productivity, safety, security, and personal comfort. According to several government sources, up to 40% of the total energy used in commercial buildings is used for artificial lighting. The various codes and standards that dictate their design must be considered as LEDs are specified.

Engineers must understand the basics of LED lighting systems and which building types are best suited for them. It is important that engineers understand how to properly specify LED light sources when it comes to critical factors such as rated lifespan, lifecycle costs, efficacy, lumen output, compatibility with dimming controls, color rendering index (CRI), color temperature, and how LED lighting systems affect the electrical systems of the buildings in which they are installed.
