Webinar: Bright Idea: Lighting Toolkit for K-12 School Districts

Bright Idea: Lighting Toolkit for K-12 School Districts

Webinar
Tuesday, November 6, 2018 3:00 pm EST
Sector: Education

This webinar introduced comprehensive guidance for K-12 schools along with a review of the newest lighting technologies and strategies for classroom optimization and proficiency, with a goal of helping school energy managers use the best available applications for their schools. To assist with decision-making during the lighting upgrade process, presenters reviewed technologies such as tunable lighting, controls, and troffer retrofits, offering economic snapshots for the benefits of these upgrades. While focused on K-12 schools, this toolkit can be useful for multiple building types. 

Speakers: Robert Davis, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; Tracy Beeson, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Webinar: ETRT Members Only Meeting: Discussion of the Building Enclosure Performance Metric Research

ETRT Members Only Meeting: Discussion of the Building Enclosure Performance Metric Research

Webinar
Wednesday, November 7, 2018 2:00 pm EST

Building enclosure technologies account for approximately 30% of the primary energy consumed in residential and commercial buildings. With the advent of energy efficient building envelope technologies, if properly installed, can significantly reduce this energy consumption. Building commissioning has been proven to ensure a better building performance, but what about the enclosure? Why hasn’t Building Enclosure Commissioning (BECx) been given more attention? Is it too complicated? Are true incentives missing? Is BECx too expensive and payback time unreasonable?

Join this session to learn about DOE and ORNL’s research into the costs and benefits of BECx as well as the investigation and development of a new building enclosure performance (BEP) metric to support building owners, designers and consultants in evaluating the benefits of BECx and investment in high performing envelope technologies.  ETRT members will be consulted on the value of the proposed BEP metric and ideas for addressing market challenges in conducting BECx.

Webinar: GPG Outbrief 17 - Advanced Lighting Controls with LED

GPG Outbrief 17 - Advanced Lighting Controls with LED

Webinar
Thursday, November 15, 2018
12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
EST

Please join us for a GPG Outbrief webinar on Advanced Lighting Controls (ALC) with LED. Researchers from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory evaluated five different LED systems with ALC at a test-bed site in Fort Worth, Texas, and provided analysis of the added savings and costs of the controls as well as guidance on where ALC with LED can be best deployed. During the webinar, researchers and facility managers will discuss findings from the evaluation, share operational guidance and answer questions.

Note: Attendees are eligible to receive 1 continuing education credit from the American Institute of Architects for attending webinars.

EST
Sector: Commercial

Landlord and tenant companies representing 1.8 billion square feet of commercial, industrial, and retail buildings achieve energy savings with green (also known as high-performance) leasing. The Better Buildings Alliance and the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) Green Lease Leaders recognition program honors real estate practitioners who continue to push the envelope on sustainability and high performance in leased spaces. In 2018, Better Buildings and IMT released a series of case studies profiling some of the 2018 Green Lease Leaders for their innovative efforts to drive efficiency, clean energy, health & wellness, and smart landlord-tenant engagement strategies in their properties. Attend our webinar to hear their success stories, advice on how to get started greening your lease, as well as how to apply to become a Green Lease Leader in 2019! Speakers include Kilroy Realty and JBG Smith.
