Lighting: Legislation & Energy Efficiency

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

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.
