OFF is the new ON: Challenging the Assumptions of Lighting Energy Consumption - Presented by Kim Mercier

Centuries of progress have created the environment we now enjoy….we are the creators of light.  And, as is the case with other skills we have attained, it is difficult to recall the thinking we had when we could not create light.  In this presentation, Kim will explore the new perspectives required by "users of light” to embrace the technology features that are the future of lighting systems.  She will share thought leader opinions about the future of lighting technologies and controls, pilot project occupant survey findings that will inform approach to future lighting designs, and suggestions for challenging the lighting energy assumptions of your design teams and project managers.
