DOE Webcast February 2: New Lighting Technologies
January 25, 2012
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) will kick off this year's First Thursday Seminars on February 2 with a live webcast titled New Lighting Technologies. The webcast will take place from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
Experts Jeff McCullough of DOE's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Brian Liebel of The Lighting Partnership, and Shawn Herrera of FEMP, will offer training in the uses and benefits of spectrally enhanced lighting and outdoor solid state lighting.
Specifically, the instructors will provide training on how to:
- Select optimal lighting solutions designed for a range of applications, based on performance data collected from a variety energy-saving lighting products
- Calculate life-cycle costs and assess the feasibility of various system designs and installation options
- Measure the savings you gain from energy-efficient lighting projects to verify the benefits of your decisions
- Use DOE and industry resources to support your selections and facilitate your work
Participants are encouraged to email or call in their questions before and during the program to receive tailored advice from the experts during the live "Q&A" segment. Questions submitted before the program can be sent to FTS@energyworkshops.org.
The 90-minute webcast is free of charge, but you must register in advance to obtain an Internet URL for the presentation. The broadcast of New Lighting Technologies will take place Thursday, February 2, from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. EST.
FEMP First Thursday Seminars are no cost training opportunities to help federal energy, environmental, and fleet professionals plan and execute projects to help meet federal goals and requirements. This upcoming session will benefit professionals seeking training on the best deployment opportunities, correct applications, project examples, and verification protocols for new lighting technologies.
