Please join the IES Detroit Section as we welcome Ruth Taylor of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). Parking lots are typically seen as a very simple lighting design exercise, however, innovations in controls and occupancy data gathering have made them a new area of exploration and transformation. Ruth will guide us through understanding the current state of parking lot connected lighting technologies, and discuss suitable installation and configuration methods for applying these technologies, and the perceived benefits and drawbacks to what is currently available.

About the Presenter:
Ruth Taylor currently serves as a project manager on the Advanced Lighting Team at the PNNL where she contributes to a number of projects focused on the commercialization of solid-state lighting. She is also the sole proprietor of her own residential architectural design firm. Ruth’s responsibilities include managing outreach and deployment activities for the Department of Energy’s Building Energy Codes Program, including the evaluation of the economic and environmental impacts of various building energy standards. Currently, Ruth manages the Next Generation Luminaires commercial SSL design competition, a nationally recognized program that encourages technical innovation in the design of energy-efficient LED luminaires.
