View IESNYC Member LEDucation Sessions On Demand

IESNYC is pleased to acknowledge IESNYC Members who presented at the LEDucation 2021 Virtual Conference.
The Virtual Conference & Online Marketplace took place March 16-17. If you missed the opportunity to attend, the presentations are available on demand. This is an excellent opportunity to gain insight on the latest lighting design challenges and trends, control systems, sustainable solutions, and an overview of various light-based disinfection technologies.

Specifying Lighting for Residential Projects
IESNYC MEMBER: Stephen Bernstein, CBB Lighting Design

Specifying lighting for residential projects has become very complicated. Selections must be made based on color, color consistency, tunable white, dim-to-warm, colored lighting. Add to the mix, issues with retrofit lamps, dimming and dimming protocols and associated cost implications, the choices can make the design team’s head explode! MORE >

IESNYC MEMBER: Rachel Gibney, Available Light
IESNYC MEMBER: Ilva Dodaj, Domingo Gonzalez Associates
Lillian Knoerzer, The Lighting Practice and Jessica Krometis, Hartranft Lighting Design

This presentation will feature four senior lighting designers that will each discuss a project with one particularly challenging lighting detail. Each panelist will review the detail and how it attributed to the overall design concept. From there they will walk the audience through the collaboration process between many different trades but how it ultimately came together and proved to be critical to the success of a project. The purpose of this panel is to spread knowledge, experience, critical thinking and lesson learned while taking a custom/specialty lighting element from initial design through installation and on to the final end product.

LED Lighting Design Essentials
IESNYC MEMBER: Eileen Pierce, Pierce Lighting Studio

The presentation aims to demystify LED lighting for architects and interior designers by outlining the core principals of lighting design and LED design specification criteria. MORE >

IESNYC MEMBER: Yuliya Savelyeva, Arup
Jimalee Beno, OCL Architectural Lighting; Renee Borg and Jennifer Lavins, from Sixteen5Hundred

The designer, manufacturer, and agent all have a role in sustainable solutions but there is little consistency in communicating and evaluating sustainability. We will explore the 17 UN Sustainability Goals and discuss how the lighting ecosystem can contribute to their attainment. Attendees will be guided through a project case study and their targeted SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). Manufacturing will discuss materials evaluation and product transparency, waste diversion, new product development & UN Guiding Principles on Human Rights. Each topic will be related to an SDG. The agent will provide insight into training, awareness, and responsibilities as well as tools for evaluation. MORE >

Embodied Carbon in Lighting
IESNYC MEMBER: Leela Shanker, The Flint Collective
IESNYC MEMBER: Elaine Cook, Moxie Lighting

New York’s 2019 Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act introduced ambitious emissions targets set for 2050. To date, the lighting industry has focused on reducing emissions by retrofitting LED lamps and thereby operational energy consumption. However, considering the full life cycle of production and disposal of lighting fixtures would allow further action addressing the embodied carbon impact of fixtures as well. Currently, there are significant data gaps that prevent accurate measurement and comparison of the embodied carbon impact of different fixtures. Industry-wide standards are needed for consistent analysis. Referencing international developments, the session will conclude with a forum to outline industry participation in such research. MORE >

PANEL DISCUSSION: Raising the Stakes for Presence Detection
IESNYC MEMBER: Dan Blitzer, Practical Lighting Workshop
IESNYC MEMBER: Craig Bernecker, Parsons School of Design
and Ruth Taylor, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Sensors for presence detection have been around for more than 50 years, initially for security and then for energy conservation. Now, research is moving beyond detecting humans to protecting them.Advances in dimmable LED lighting have increased interest in deploying sensors for lighting human/traffic interactions outdoors. Indoors, using germicidal UV radiation to fight life threatening pathogens while maintaining human safety presents new opportunities for sensor technology and deployment.

Nevertheless, critical questions of sensor effectiveness, reliability and deployment need to be addressed as sensors move into applications with significant human risk. This presentation discusses how The Next Generation Lighting Systems program is evaluating various sensor technologies with implications for interior and exterior applications. MORE >
