Performance Assessment of Lighting Systems

COURSE NO: E04-013
Performance Assessment of Lighting Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of good lighting practices and discusses the performance assessment methodology.


Good lighting does not necessarily mean more lighting nor does the more lighting means more energy consumption. Good lighting does mean more effective lighting while low on energy consumption. It is important to ensure that while the most appropriate equipment to meet the lighting requirements is used, it is also the most efficient equipment of its type. The most energy efficient lighting installations ensure that lighting is provided only where and when it is required. This may be achieved with appropriate design to produce either uniform general lighting or localized lighting.


This 4 PDH  online course is aimed at architects, electrical and control engineers, energy auditors, O&M personnel and general audience who are interested in learning more about performance assessments of lighting systems.
