Adaptive Lighting Symposia

Adaptive Lighting Symposia

Bi-level lighting controls save energy when higher lighting levels are unnecessary. It has well established applications in stairwells and parking areas, and potential additional applications such as office buildings. The Adaptive Lighting Symposia challenged facility and energy managers to look deeper for opportunities to couple efficacious light sources with occupancy-responsive controls to maximize energy benefits and create a more desirable lighting environment for those who live and work within those spaces.

A 3.5-hour symposium was presented on four occasions in the fall of 2010: once in Portland, Oregon, once in Spokane, Washington and twice in Seattle, Washington. Of the attendees who completed a survey, 97 percent felt that the information presented would be beneficial to their organizations. All respondents were interested in future presentations on emerging electrical energy efficiency technology.

We would recommend using the “symposia” platform to offer future education and training events that transfer knowledge about energy efficiency technologies that hold promise within BPA’s service territory. This is a good way to introduce emerging technologies to a larger audience and to those who can make decisions about whether or not to use them in their facilities.
