Lighting Legislation & Energy Efficiency


The objective of this course is to cover the important considerations and requirements for energy efficient lighting solutions in buildings.

It is well established that mankind needs light for life and for carrying out visual tasks at workplace, home and places for leisure. The light for this visual activity can be natural (daylight) and artificial (electric) light source. To help in the reduction of carbon emissions, electric lighting needs to be provided energy efficiently by having the right lighting criteria, the right lighting scheme installed and operated by the appropriate system consisting of lamps, ballast, luminaires and controls.

Covering some of the basics of terminology and benefits of different light sources and luminaires, the course explores governance in design, such as standards, regulations and impact assessments. Importantly, it demonstrates how energy efficiency is achieved through the application good design practice and how this can be demonstrated to clients.

The course can be delivered in-house directly through LPA Lighting or we deliver it for the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).
