About this Program

Human Centric Lighting (HCL) is becoming a crucial facet in lighting. It includes the benefits of illumination for vision, circadian (24-hour body clock) benefits, and also additional non-circadian benefits. Selecting the correct lighting for any given space has been shown to improve occupants' alertness, mood, visual acuity, and productivity. This webinar focuses on how an energy manager can realize the benefits of HCL using energy-efficient lighting and control solutions and how these benefits can be the catalyst for approving lighting projects.

The content of this webinar applies to most buildings and facilities, such as offices, manufacturing, and high-capacity residential. It is essential for those involved with managing hospitals, aged-care facilities, and schools, especially special needs classrooms, 2nd and 3rd shift workers, and even daytime workers without windows.
