Energy Efficient Industrial Lighting Course
When it comes to saving energy, lighting looks easy. All you have to do is replace the existing lights with LED, right?
But it’s a lot more than that. If you aren’t careful, those LED lights you put in may fail early, resulting in unwanted expense trying to fix the problem. At worst, a poorly specified and implemented lighting upgrade could even cause a fire.
Getting the best savings from a lighting upgrade, in many cases, involves much more than putting in a LED light.
Without a good understanding of lighting, those relying and trusting on your advice could be losing out on additional savings. Savings that you may have achieved had you known a bit more about lighting.
What You’ll Learn in This Energy Efficient Industrial Lighting Course
- How lighting works, and the characteristics of light
- The four components of a light fixture – and why each one is important
- How to do calculations related to lighting – and be tested on your ability to do these calculations
- How to prioritise opportunities to save lighting energy
- How you might actually increase energy use when doing a lighting upgrade – and how to avoid this.
- How to develop a robust business case for an energy efficient lighting upgrade.
Energy Efficient Industrial Lighting Course Description
This Energy Efficient Industrial Lighting Course helps you learn about energy efficient lighting by developing a good understanding of the fundamental of light. You’ll then learn about the four components of a lighting fixture and how each is important to having an efficient light.
It teaches a systematic process for identifying lighting inefficiencies, using a Sankey diagram, and how to apply the energy efficiency hierarchy. The energy efficiency hierarchy helps you identify a large range of opportunities, no matter what type of building and lighting.
The Energy Efficient Industrial Lighting Course then looks at some of the practical concerns and issues associated with lighting upgrades and the control of lights.
Learn about assessing existing lighting and those interactive effects that might increase or decrease the energy savings that arise from a lighting upgrade.
This Energy Efficient Industrial Lighting Course guides you in preparing the business case for a lighting upgrade.
This Energy Efficient Industrial Lighting Course Is Perfect For:
Energy Efficient Lighting is for those undertaking energy audits anywhere and for facility and energy managers seeking to reduce their energy usage, carbon footprint, and operations costs.
It’s also for electricians and solar installers seeking other opportunities to help their clients reduce their energy costs and carbon footprint.
This Energy Efficient Industrial Lighting Course is for you if any of the following apply:
- You have little or no knowledge or experience with lighting
- You have energy auditing experience but find that the upgrades you specify aren’t working as well as you would like
- You come from an electrical trades background and are looking to understand more about lighting fundamentals so that you can provide better lighting upgrades and advice
- You want to learn how to maximize lighting savings
- More reliably achieve large lighting energy savings
Become an Investment Grade Energy Auditor
If you want to further improve your energy systems management and optimization skills, we highly recommend completing our Investment Grade Energy Auditor (IGEA) certification.
By acquiring a IGEA certificate, you’ll be qualified to conduct professional energy audits for corporations, manufacturing plants, buildings, and other establishments in the industrial sector.
This Energy Efficient Lighting course is the fifth part of the IGEA certification program (part five of eight).
Part 1: Undertaking an Energy Audit
Every energy auditor should undertake this course to see the audit from the other side of the fence, thus improving their ability to engage with energy users effectively.
Presents a process that, when followed, results in successful audits being delivered. You can apply this process to deliver an Investment Grade Audit (IGA) / Detailed Feasibility Study (DFS).
This course will teach the fundamental concepts of physics and engineering that energy auditors must know.
This course introduces energy auditors to tools, both essential and nice-to-have, for undertaking energy audits.
Part 2: Energy Using Technologies and Savings Opportunities
Learn the fundamentals of energy-efficient lighting in this course, and save more lighting energy!
Knowing how to minimize HVAC energy use is core knowledge every energy manager, energy auditor, HVAC contractor, or consultant needs.
This course covers both domestic hot water and water use more extensively.
This course covers electric motors, compressed air, refrigeration, and steam, and it provides an introduction to these technologies and energy efficiency opportunities.
If you pass all the assessments in this Energy Efficient Industrial Lighting Course you will be issued with a Certificate of Competence in the Fundamentals of Energy Efficient Lighting. The assessment has been prepared by an expert, and is based on those key areas which demonstrate competence.
This Energy Efficient Industrial Lighting Course is accredited by ESTA (Energy Services and Technology Association).
