BCEA & IES Advance Lighting Seminar

October 7, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm


4 LEU credits from NCQLP

6.75 Core AIBC LU credits

AIA approved

The Vancouver Section of the Illuminating Engineering Society in partnership with BC Electrical Association invites you to attend a full day Advanced Lighting Seminar.




Session 1:

Complying with ASHRAE/ IES Standard 90.1-2010 for lighting: 10 points to remember

In December 2013 the British Columbia Building Code was updated with a new set of requirements for Part 3 buildings’ energy performance directly based on the NECB 2011 and ASHRAE/ IES Standard 90.1-2010 documents. As a result, the energy performance of the lighting systems has increased significantly. However, while the general lighting design trends have adjusted well to the new standards, after almost 2 years of enforcement some particular requirements are still not effectively comprehended. This presentation will reveal some important details of the lighting and electrical power requirements of ASHRAE/ IES Standard 90.1-2010 that lighting designers, electrical engineering consultants, green building consultants need to make sure of when complying with the current BC Building Code energy requirements.


Session 2:

Advancements in lighting controls have changed how we Plan for and Wire them.

Presentation will look at impact of wiring for lighting controls, no longer just power; you also have to be mindful of the network topology. Some best practices to select and plan for a successful installation, along with improvements in LED driver control technology.


Session 3:

Making the best of conventional and LED technology in commercial & industrial applications

The variety of lighting related products has never been greater and consumers may find it difficult to choose the solution(s) that best suit their needs. To complicate matters, the same light source that works for one space, may not work for another. ‘One-size’ does not fit all, and this presentation will identify several traditional as well as LED sources that can be used in a variety of applications. Case studies will be presented to help illustrate this concept.


Session 4:

Lighting beyond LEDs

Although LEDs are poised to irreversibly change the lighting industry is the convergence of these digital light sources with (digital) intelligent controls that will transform the world. The next few years will mark an exciting chapter in the convergence of disparate systems within commercial, municipal and industrial applications. Providing services in addition to the visual scope, network-powered LEDs can be added, moved, and changed like other plug-and-play network devices. Presentation will explore SSL’s huge potential for changes not only for the lighting industry but for communications, financing and connectivity.
