Commissioning can lead to energy savings-often 60% or more
Daylighting control-or daylight harvesting-has become a common energy-saving strategy in sustainable building design. A recent Energy Center project set out to determine existing levels of success with daylighting control, achieved savings and missed opportunities. Our findings demonstrate that successful implementation of automatic daylighting control requires a significant commissioning effort to reach full energy-savings potential.

Tri-Chapter XXI: Recap and Photos

Jun. 4, 2012

Tri-Chapter XXI was an amazing success.  IFMA-NEW was host for the 21st annual event where the three IFMA chapters of WI get together for a day of networking, education and fun. 

This year's venue was the not-so-frozen tundra of Lambeau Field.  Over 120 IFMA members and friends from Wisconsin and beyond came to learn about Staying Energized, New Lambeau Expansions, Local Project Successes, Trends in Lighting, Ergonomics, Social Media, Communication, Building a High Impact Facility Department, and understanding the impact of the Packers on the local economy.  Many of the attendeess also got to experience the thrill of the Lambeau Tour and actual saw the playing field up close.

Special Thanks to all that attended and who volunteered on the committee and that day.  You were all a big part of the event.  Watch for details for Tri-Chapter 22 in the Madison Area.
