Advanced Course on Sustainable Lighting Practices (organised by TERI and PHILIPS)

A good lighting design enhances architecture but energy-efficient lighting design enhances both the design and the performance of a building. Energy-efficient lighting design focuses on methods and materials that improve both quality and efficiency of lighting. A good lighting design should be able to provide desired quantity and quality of light at minimum energy consumption. Lighting contributes to significant energy consumption in buildings.

Philips and TERI have joined hands to offer this unique course on sustainable lighting solutions that shall enable participants understand the tools and techniques of efficient and effective lighting solutions, enable understanding of GRIHA (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment: The National Rating System for Green Buildings in India) requirement for energy efficient lighting including integration of control strategies as per requirements of the Energy Conservation Building Code of India. The course has balanced content of theory and practical exercises. Participants shall be given exposure to use of software tools for design of efficient lighting systems. Practical training on audit of existing lighting system and derivation of retrofit solutions shall be done. The course shall have equal emphasis on indoor and outdoor lighting solutions.
