Educational Webinars

Each month, the IES presents a live webinar on topics we believe will be beneficial to our membership and the public at large. We are excited to offer you this education-oriented program where you can expand your knowledge about lighting and earn IES continuing education credits (CEUs). We hope that you will join us.

The Educational Webinar Series features two categories of webinars; IES Standards Webinars and IES Lighting Education Webinars.

IES Standards Webinars: Each webinar is devoted to a specific IES Standard. These webinars are typically presented by one or more lead contributors from the authoring committee of the standard. Webinar attendees have an opportunity to hear directly from experts who have in-depth knowledge on the topic of the standard. In addition, there is an opportunity for a question and answer session at the end. This allows viewers the ability to engage directly with the presenters.

IES Lighting Education Webinars: Each webinar is devoted to a relevant and important lighting topic.

For IES members, viewing the live webinar is FREE. In addition, each webinar is recorded and made available on through our website two weeks after the live event takes place. Viewing the archived webinars is available only for IES members.

For non-members, viewing the live webinar costs $20. The archived recordings are only made available to IES members as a benefit of membership. Click here to become an IES Member

Login information will be sent to each registrant the week of the webinar; on Tuesday morning and again at 10:30 am ET on Thursday (the day of the webinar). Be sure to always check your spam and clutter folders to ensure that you received this important information.

Slide decks of the presentation will not be distributed.

To obtain IES CEUs you must be individually logged in for the duration of the webinar. CEU Certificates will be distributed within two weeks of the live event. No credits are given to those who log in exclusively by phone.

WEBINAR SCHEDULE

Meeting the Moment: Lighting and Value

August 12th 12:00 PM ET

Pacific Northwest National LaboratoryLighting provides value in spaces, allowing them to be functional while providing visual interest and making places more desirable. Lighting value is more than the return on investment of energy or maintenance, and this webinar will discuss new industry efforts and metrics for estimating difficult-to-quantify values related to lighting.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

PRESENTERS:
Michael MyerMichael Myer, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Michael Myer is a senior researcher at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, where he supports U.S. Department of Energy programs including energy codes, appliance standards, and field evaluations.

The Update of LM-79: Optical and Electrical Measurements of Solid State Lighting Products

August 19th 12:00 PM ET

In 2008 the IES published LM-79, “Approved Method: Electrical and Photometric Measurements of Solid-State Lighting Products.” This measurement standard for solid-state lighting products quickly became the world recognized standard for measuring LED lighting products. Last year the IES Test Procedures Committee (TPC) completed a comprehensive review and revision of LM-79. Last fall, the revision was published as ANSI/IES LM-79, “Approved Method: Optical and Electrical Measurements of Solid-State Lighting Products.” The revision includes better guidance on how to make measurement and requirements that help to reduce measurement variations between different testing facilities. Consideration for these changes was based on information collected from NVLAP proficiency testing, independent research, and an effort to help minimize the burden on testing laboratories.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

PRESENTERS:
C. Cameron MillerCameron Miller, National Institute of Standards and Technology
Cameron Miller joined the National Institute of Standards and Technology in 1996 and in 2013 was appointed the group leader for the Optical Radiation Group.

He is also an NVLAP assessor for the Energy Efficient Lighting Program and the Calibration Program. Cameron Miller obtained his PhD in Physical Chemistry from Cornell University (1994).


Meeting the Moment: Lighting and Sustainability

September 2nd 12:00 PM ET

Pacific Northwest National LaboratoryThe adoption of LED lighting has tremendous environmental benefits for its reduced energy use, yet the environmental impact of lighting extends beyond energy use – from the materials used to create a lighting product, to how a product is manufactured, operated, and maintained, to disposal or re-use at end-of-life. This webinar will provide a holistic view of the environmental impacts of LED lighting across its full life cycle, including embodied carbon and emissions, hazardous material concerns, and depletion of resources. Attendees will learn about methods, tools, and resources they can use to develop and support a more sustainable and circular lighting economy.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

PRESENTERS:
Gabe ArnoldGabe Arnold, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Gabe Arnold is a Senior Engineer at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory where he focuses on development and deployment of emerging lighting technologies. He’s a principal investigator on the advanced lighting team supporting the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lighting R&D and Commercial Buildings Integration programs.
