IES Presents Final Installment of Webinar Series

The IES, in collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), is pleased to offer the final installment of our special five-part free webinar series, “Taming Controls Complexity” on Thursday, September 1st at 12:00PM ET.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU) per webinar.

In this webinar, presenters will discuss how the challenges with configuration, commissioning, and maintaining control settings over time have slowed progress towards integrated lighting and building system controls. Overcoming such challenges can enable energy savings, adaptive lighting for occupant alertness and wellbeing, and better space management in buildings. This webinar will explore some practical solutions to address controls complexity, including development of a clear and concise sequence of operations, the use of controls narratives, and online tools and templates to make these solutions more accessible.
