Electric lighting is a major energy consumer. Enormous energy savings are possible using energy efficient equipment, effective controls, and careful design. Using less electric lighting reduces heat gain, thus saving air-conditioning energy and improving thermal comfort. Electric lighting design also strongly affects visual performance and visual comfort by aiming to maintain adequate and appropriate illumination while controlling reflection and glare.
There are several types of energy efficient lighting and affordable lighting technology. In this course the student will learn a few examples of energy-saving opportunities with efficient lighting.
