Texas adopted IECC 2015 as its statewide energy code in an initiative towards higher sustainability in late 2016. Lighting power densities have been reduced by as much as 43%, and lighting controls and daylighting are now not just good ideas but code requirements. Wondering how to rethink energy-conscious design strategies and still make your project visually compelling?

Join seasoned lighting and daylighting design experts for a presentation, Sustainable Trends in Architectural Lighting, to learn an overview of IECC 2015 lighting requirements and how they differ from previous codes, sustainable lighting and daylighting design best practices, the latest trends in sustainable lighting products, examples of sustainable lighting strategies used in Texas-based project applications, and what's next in the world of lighting.

About the presenter:

As Principal at Austin-based firm Tanteri & Associates, a collaborative alliance with HLB Lighting Design, Matthew provides thought leadership within HLB's Daylighting and Sustainable Design Studio, while managing the daylighting and electric lighting design of a number of large commercial and institutional projects. Matthew is a Fellow of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), an Educator of the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD), a Certified Passive House Consultant
