Good lighting does not necessarily mean more lighting nor does more lighting mean more energy consumption. Good lighting does mean more effective lighting while keeping energy consumption low. It is important to ensure that while the most appropriate equipment to meet the lighting requirements is used, it should also be the most efficient equipment of its type.

The most energy efficient lighting installations ensure that lighting is provided only where and when it is required. This may be achieved with appropriate design to produce either uniform general lighting or localized lighting.

This 4-hour online course provides an overview of good lighting practices and discusses the performance assessment methodology. This course is aimed at electrical and control engineers, architects, energy auditors and others.
