CPD Talks Series: Energy Efficient Lighting Controls


Are you Interested in developing your understanding of energy efficient lighting and lighting controls? On Thursday 30 May 2013 the AAA in association with InHouse Group 3 will be running the first of it's CPD Talks series for 2013.

In a typical office lighting accounts for 15-20 percent1 of energy used. In the average home lighting contributes to around 7 percent2 of the total energy used. Selecting appropriate energy efficient lighting and light controls makes good sense for reducing the costs of lighting buildings and reducing the emission of greenhouse gases.

Presented by Shane McIntosh (Director at CP Electronics Australia), who has 40 years experience in the electrical/data communications industry, this CPD talk will focus on the importance of efficient design with regard to lighting control.

You will gain an understanding of lighting controls both simple and more complex and be able to understand industry terminology for dimming commercial lighting. You will learn about when automated lighting control is required and the benefits.

The Energy Efficient Lighting Controls talk is also perfect for architects or designers looking to top up their continuing professional development (CPD) before 30 June. Earn 1 CPD point by attending the seminar.

Tickets: $25 (public) / $15 (AAA members)
Presentation Duration: 1 Hour (1 Formal CPD Point)
Time: 6pm Light refreshments served. 6.30pm start of presentation.
Location & Parking Details: ACTIU Showroom, Unit 5, 37-69 Union Street, Pyrmont
