Webinar: Implementation of Successful Daylighting Control Systems


Date: Thursday, Feb. 28
Time: 1–2:30 p.m. CST
Presenters: Scott Schuetter, PE, LEED AP BD+C and Scott Hackel, PE, LEED AP

Daylighting control, or daylight harvesting, has become a common energy-savings strategy when designing for sustainability. Although automatic daylighting controls are growing in popularity, several barriers still exist to successfully implement these technologies in mainstream construction.

Best practices suggest that successful automatic daylighting controls require a significant commissioning effort (including calibration and functional testing) in order to reach full energy-savings potential. In this webinar, the presenters will discuss their research findings from monitoring and commissioning several daylighting control systems in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Field performance results will be shared and guidelines for successful execution, startup and commissioning of these systems will be addressed.

This webinar is free and will present the results of a CARD project funded by the Minnesota Department of Commerce.
