President

 

Elizabeth Gillmor is the president of Energetics Consulting Engineers, a solutions oriented energy and daylighting consulting firm in Denver. Elizabeth comes to the land of energy modeling with a unique perspective: As a graduate of the University of Colorado’s Architectural Engineering program with a focus in Illumination and minor in Applied Math, she started her career as a lighting designer, which led to a focus in energy efficiency, daylighting design, and eventually whole building energy modeling. Now she specializes in energy consulting for LEED, Enterprise Green Communities, utility rebates, and energy code compliance. She is a Professional Engineer in Colorado and Louisiana, a certified ASHRAE “Building Energy Modeling Professional”, “Lighting Certified” by the NCQLP, and is on the Board of Directors for the USA chapter of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSAUSA).


ABSTRACT

As energy codes get more and more stringent, and teams seek higher levels of energy savings, capturing lighting energy savings is more critical (and unfortunately more complex) than ever before. If you are a lighting designer, what can you do to make sure that your energy modeler “gets” the efficiencies of your lighting and daylighting design? If you are a modeler, how can you get a better understanding of the intents and opportunities of the lighting? This interactive seminar, led by a former-lighting-designer-turned-energy-modeler, will give you the insider’s view from both perspectives.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Review the codes and rules that both lighting and energy folks follow (how they are different and why that matters)

Show examples of how the lighting information goes from the drawings to the model (and pitfalls of unclear documentation)

Learn to think like a lighting/energy person for better communication

Discover how to find lighting energy savings opportunities, and demonstrate how you can make the most out of it to best reward your project.
