Lighting the Classroom of the Future: A DOE Project
- Brought to you by Finelite
- Presented by Amy Hansen
- Where Microsoft Teams
- Time 12pm-1pm
The Department of Energy has initiated a research project to develop and test novel SSL luminaire designs for the classroom of the future. This presentation will present key findings from this research effort. Topics covered will include how major drivers such as new trends in lighting and controls, new trends in learning, new requirements for the classroom, and a new understanding of how human centric lighting changes the way we need to light classrooms. The presentation will cover the DOE-proscribed goals for energy efficiency, teacher control over lighting intensity and CCT, lumen maintenance and color stability, luminaire performance and lighting levels on classroom desks and walls. After the presentation, the attendee will understand how to meet or exceed the DOE goals.
