Human Centric Lighting & Technology Brown Bag Lunch

07 January 2013 (Monday) @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Location:  Maui County Business Resource Center (MCBRC) in the Maui Mall

Human Centric Lighting is also called human factors in lighting, biophilia and other terms. It is for good circadian rhythms, visual acuity, mood, performance and energy saving – sustainability. The new generation of tunable LED products can dim and can color tone from warm white to cool white, which is so good for Human Centric Lighting. Office, school and hospital case studies will be discussed.

Many of these tunable LED products have the same amount of light and efficiency and cost about as much as standard LED products. This lighting cannot only cut electric costs for lighting in half, but it may also improve worker satisfaction, worker productivity, student performance and retail sales, which can dwarf electrical savings. Come to this talk, which discusses this next big step in lighting, which may become as significant as Edison creating the light bulb. This is different material than what Stan will present for Hawaii Energy on January 8.

All MCBRC workshops are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants are asked to bring their own lunches. The workshop is from 12 noon to 1pm. For more information or to reserve limited seating, call the MCBRC at (808) 873-8247.
