- SPEAKER BIO(S)
Daylighting is the technique of bringing natural light into a space and using it to enhance the space's visual quality as well as energy performance. LEDs are a dynamic new technology with tremendous potential.
This webinar will touch on the fundamentals of daylighting and LEDs, as well as the best ways to incorporate them into a single lighting system. We will discuss:
- Goals and methods of daylighting
- Basic daylighting system components
- LED performance specifications
- LED controllability and drivers
- Cost considerations
After watching this webinar, you will be able to:
- Explain the energy-saving and cost-reducing benefits of implementing daylight design using LEDs
- Identify factors that influence LED specifications
- Analyze cost considerations
- Describe criteria needed for successful LED implementation in a daylight design
