Joined Up Lighting seminar series continues

16 October 2009 10.00 GMT

(UK) - The Joined Up Lighting Seminar Series continues in February with “The New Part L: Will it Really Reduce Carbon Emissions?” Sponsored by Se’lux, the seminar includes opening speakers David Bleicher, Principal Research Engineer, BSRIA Design & FM Innovation and Iain Macrae, Lighting Applications Manager, UK & Ireland, Thorn Lighting and Vice-President of the SLL.

Part L legislation for interior lighting has been with us since the turn of the century – and is now entering its third incarnation. The Government sees it as the most effective method for making energy savings, and subsequent CO2 reductions, from interior lighting schemes.
However, some lighting design practitioners see its energy targets as misguided, ineffective and inimical to good lighting design. Does Part L’s emphasis on luminaire efficiency take into account the overall interior ambience and the visual comfort of users? And does its neglect of automated controls (such as daylight and presence sensing) miss real opportunities for substantial energy savings that don’t compromise good design? This session of ‘Joined up Lighting’ will explore these important questions.

The seminar will take place on Wednesday, February 17, 2010 at 2.30pm at Building Design Partnership, 16 Brewhouse Yard,
Clerkenwell, London EC1V 4LJ (The nearest tube station is Farringdon). Drinks and snacks will be provided after the close at 5.00pm. Entry is free but prior registration (via the website below) is essential for security reasons.
