A technical presentation from Chartered Engineers Pacific on the LED lighting revolution

The LED lighting revolution is well on its way with benefits that include higher efficacy, longer service life, the ability to dim, harvest daylighting, effectively schedule lighting, create virtual zones of control to suit changing floor layouts, and provide feedback on the energy consumption and time of use of each fixture.


The LED lighting system also provides the physical infrastructure to incorporate non-lighting sensors to facilitate the deployment of hardware required to support dispersed communication technologies and thus become a “de facto” framework for connectivity. These features can be used to reduce both a customer’s energy use and demand, as well as provide non-energy benefits such as improved health and productivity.

Speaker

Dr. Cristian Suvagau 
Team Lead, Conservation & Energy Management Engineering


Dr. Cristian Suvagau has been practicing and teaching architectural lighting design and energy efficiency in Europe and North America for over 35 years. He is a lighting specialist and an energy management engineer and the lighting team lead in the Conservation and Energy Management department of BC Hydro, the crown-corporation utility of the province of British Columbia.

Cristian is a Professional Engineer and holds a doctorate in Lighting from the Technical University of Construction in Bucharest, Romania. Cristian is a Past-President of the Vancouver IES Section, the Division 4 (outdoor lighting) representative of the Canadian National Committee of the International Commission on Illumination (CNC/CIE).

Cristian also participates actively on standards committees of the Canadian Standards Association (CSA, Chair of the C419 committee on performance of lighting equipment), IES, CIE, Design Lighting Consortium (DLC), Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) and many other associations to develop performance standards for LED, lighting, and control equipment.

An adjunct professor with the New York Institute of Technology (Vancouver campus), Cristian is often teaching lighting classes for continuous education and is presenting at national and international industry seminars, while authoring numerous technical lighting articles for publications around the world.
