    In-Depth Seminar
    Luminaires and Lighting Controls: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

    In this two hour course, we’ll explore why traditional lighting control strategies are underutilized today and how the combination of lighting codes and technology are reversing this trend. We’ll also explore how systems and control technologies are advancing to deliver a better user experience and more useful building and occupant data.

    The course will review the technological underpinning of the major technologies of 'Intelligent Lighting,' look at practical applications, as well as current trends that lead to smarter buildings that improve the user experience, and provide access to important data analytics, all while saving significant energy. 

    This emergence of Intelligent Lighting, which touches on the IoT (Internet of Things) and POE (Power over Ethernet) promises to redefine the luminaire and the systems that support it.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Discuss traditional lighting control strategies and how they are changing with the evolution of Intelligent Lighting and the Internet of Things (IoT)
    • Assess the major subsystems of Intelligent Lighting: communications; sensing; power; analytics.
    • Examine the benefits of current Intelligent Lighting systems in use today; what they can do now and will do in the future.
    • Show the difference between energy efficient buildings versus truly smart buildings.

        August 8 Program
      The Value of Energy Analysis, from Design Day One

      IN PARTNERSHIP WITH: ASHRAE-St. Louis Chapter

      This interactive program will provide attendees with a charrette experience for evaluating and driving building energy performance—to analyze results in real time, as early as pre-design. During this session, volunteer participants act as design team members from all disciplines, working with real building characteristics and an actual building design. Using an analysis approach that assists with a cost benefit discussion, the participants will assemble “bundles” of selected energy efficiency measures to play out what-if scenarios, discussing the merits and challenges of each bundle. This program, with live tools and facilitation, will demonstrate an effective method for guiding energy decision-making during early design, towards achieving higher efficiency goals and increasingly stringent energy codes.

      Learning Objectives:

      • Recognize the value early energy analysis provides to the design process and client decision-making
      • Identify a range of energy-efficiency options and their impacts on energy outcomes during various stages of design
      • Interpret building performance and financial information provided by energy analysis results, including lifecycle costs 
      • Examine how decisions made very early in pre-design can increase energy savings opportunities

        Benchmarking Jam
        Presented in partnership with the Green Dining Alliance


        The USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter and the Green Dining Alliance present a Benchmarking Jam for restaurants, food sales, and food service buildings. Resources specific to these building types will be shared, however buildings of all types are welcome to attend.

        Energy benchmarking is the process of measuring how much energy your building consumes, and comparing your energy performance to similar buildings. Benchmarking is the first step toward saving energy and money!

        The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is an online, interactive energy management tool that allows you to measure and track your building’s energy, water, and waste data, identify investment priorities, and verify improvements over time.

        Get hands-on assistance using the free, online ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool at the upcoming Benchmarking Jam!

        In order for this event to be a success, each building representative should bring:
        • Laptop or Tablet
        • The building street address, year built, and contact information.
        • Gross Floor Area (square feet)
        • Energy Use Data
          • Attendees will need at least 12 consecutive months of utility bills for all fuel types used in the building. Bring the number of units of each energy type used, not just the dollar amount of the utility fee.
          • Historical energy use data can be downloaded on the Ameren Missouri website, and requested from Laclede Gas's customer service team.
          • Water and Waste can also be tracked in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Interested building owners should collect 12 months of water usage and cost data and 12 months of waste production (volume or weight of waste in all waste streams) and cost data.
        • Property Use Details: Additional required information varies by building type. See the list below.

        Each year, US Insurers, Federal and State Governments, and citizens spend close to $50 billion to recover from floods, fires, water damage, wind and hail and other natural disasters. Are we getting the best return on this enormous investment? Is the built environment made any more sustainable after this money is spent? This program will explore the connections between risk management, green buildings, and sustainable business practices, offer idea about how to better manage the disaster risks we face and introduce the recently formed Sustainable Disaster Response Council (SDRC).

        • Explore the connections, similarities and synergies between risk management, green buildings, and sustainable practices.
        • Identify risk management best practices to increase resilience and sustainability in the face of disasters.
        • Define disaster in terms of local risks, specifically exploring risks in the St. Louis area.
        • Introduce the recently formed Sustainable Disaster Response Council.

        SPEAKERS
        Stephen Bushnell
        is widely recognized as a risk-focused expert on green buildings, sustainable manufacturing and operations, and the broader business, economic and risk management implications of climate, energy and other sustainability challenges. A highly experienced insurance and risk management professional with more than 40 years of experience, Steve led the development of the industry’s first dedicated insurance policies and risk services for green buildings.

        He has served in advisory or board capacities for organizations like California Sustainability Alliance, the Green California Summit, UL Environment and the U.S. Green Building Council – where he was the first representative of the insurance industry elected to USGBC’s National Board of Directors, serving from 2012 - 2015. He currently sits on the newly formed USGBC Advisory Council.

        Richard Schuessler is an Account Executive at HM Risk. Richard is a life-long St. Louis resident and Truman State University finance graduate. He started with Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company/Allianz out of college. With Fireman’s Fund being the first insurance company to provide specific insurance coverage and discounts for green buildings, Richard quickly became involved with green insurance and the local USGBC Chapter. He has focused his volunteer efforts on government advocacy at the State and Federal level.

        Flance Learning Center opened to students in June 2014, and aims to be an exemplary early
        learning center, serving children of all incomes and backgrounds, six-weeks to six-years of age in a new, $11.5 million facility. The center’s design team placed heavy emphasis on ensuring that indoor and outdoor spaces were resource-efficient, free of toxins, healthy for students, comfortable for teachers, and cost-effective.  In recognition of this emphasis on health and environmental
        sustainability, Flance Center is registered to become only the 4th LEED for Schools Certified
        Preschool in the world.   Universal Design features are also incorporated to create a convenient
        experience for staff and students, regardless of physical ability, thereby creating an environment in which special-needs and typical-needs children can thrive side-by-side in the same classrooms.

        Building Optimization: From Tactical to Strategic, From Sporadic to Continuous

        SPEAKERS: Erik Merker, Director of Energy Services and James Dice, Director of Energy Analytics at Sitton Energy Solutions

        Owners often take a project-by-project approach to optimizing the performance of the buildings. This session will share how some Owners have taken a more proactive approach, one that is based on an overall energy strategy that becomes a continuous process for optimizing the performance of their buildings. The results are maximum savings, optimum comfort and health, and minimized carbon emissions.  

        Learning Objectives:

        • Examine the components and design of an energy strategy that continuously optimizes building performance
        • Discuss the implementation, maintenance, and measurement of a continuous building optimization strategy.
        • Examine case studies of buildings that have implemented continuous building optimization strategies
