Join us this month as we host a joint meeting with IES New Mexico
Topic: Light the Way to LEED V4.0
Speakers: Mitchell Minotti & Mark Bilger
• Understand LEED and certification levels and how to earn points by using lighting control strategies
• Identify key changes in LEED and how they affect design and construction of commercial buildings
• Use Green LEED rating to understand how lighting control can effectively contribute to LEED certification
In 2006, builders registered 1,700 projects under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification system. Today, the number of registered commercial building projects has exploded to well over 35,000. Many of these projects utilize light control to obtain several LEED points. Currently, the USGBC is transitioning to LEED v4. As such, light control remains a key contributor to LEED certification. In fact, light control and light control manufacturer services can contribute to over 40 out of the 110 possible LEED points. This presentation will show participants the key differences between LEED v4 and LEED 2009, and how light control can considerably contribute to LEED v4 certification. Lastly, this session will examine how light control contributed to LEED certification in a real-world project.
Some notable projects include:
City Center Las Vegas - the first LEED Gold project in Las Vegas including a casino
GSA Green Proving Ground – evaluation of networked lighting control
Army, Air Force, and National Guard - NetZero military base applications
