Better Plants: Lighting, HVAC, and Building Envelope

Please join the Department of Energy's Better Plants team for a NEW Online Learning Series covering a range of topics that support energy management goals. Understanding energy management best practices can not only help you identify critical improvements in your facility, but also realize tangible energy and cost-savings benefits that can be reinvested into other areas of a business.

This webinar about Lighting, HVAC, and Building Envelope will feature Thomas Wenning from Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Lighting systems, building envelope, and HVAC systems are very important for safety and productivity in manufacturing facilities. This session covers various lighting technologies (CFL, HID, LED, etc.) and lighting system control strategies (occupancy censors, light level sensors, etc.). This presentation also discusses how to measure the energy performance of building envelope and HVAC systems and how to select based on their performance. Attendees will also learn about how to identify conservation opportunities and quantity savings for these three energy systems.

Better Plants partners with leading manufacturers and water utilities to improve energy efficiency and competitiveness in the industrial sector, saving money in the process. Through Better Plants, partners voluntarily set a specific goal, typically to reduce energy intensity by 25% over a 10-year period across all their U.S. operations.
