The Upcoming Lighting Revolution

October 3, 2014 - 8:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.
Where: Two World Trade Center
               121 SW Salmon St.
               Portland, OR 97204
Why: Sure, LEDs can save energy and last a long time. But as solid state devices, they are also very versatile performers. Their controllability allows for color temperature tuning according to human needs. This represents a paradigm shift for designers, specifiers and end users. And how will this impact building codes and affect incentive programs? The benefits of lighting in the future will go well beyond just meeting light level and watts per square foot requirements. How will tunable lighting affect human performance, mood, health and productivity? When do we recommend and how do we specify these advanced lighting features? Welcome to the new lighting revolution.

Thanks to forum sponsor, Portland General Electric, for their generous support for this event.

Because of PGE's support, non APEM members may attend at the member rate of $50 per person.

What Is Oregon APEM?

The Oregon Association of Professional Energy Managers was founded in 1982 as a partnership of business, government and utilities. Oregon APEM seeks to advance the understanding and practice of efficient energy use through forums, newsletters, facility tours, and face-to-face dialogue. Oregon APEM provides a forum for energy and resource management professionals in Oregon and Southwest Washington to share information and to grow professionally. In 2006 Oregon APEM incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Oregon APEM members have a variety of job titles and come from a broad diversity of backgrounds. This diversity enlarges the scope of professional level information disseminated among the members. Oregon APEM members and their communities benefit from informed input into the design of utility programs, government legislation, and efficient business operations.
