2013 Advanced Lighting Control Systems FlashTAG
PLEASE SAVE THESE DATES (times PDT):
April 17, 2013, 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
May 2, 2013, 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM
Welcome to the Advanced Lighting
Control Systems FlashTAG. Thanks to all those who have agreed to participate.
We are sending this message out
to all those we invited to the FlashTAG, so that all receive links to two key
events, and are made aware of other FlashTAG resources even if they cannot
participate this time. Future messages will go only to those who have confirmed
their intent to participate at some level. If you declined already, but would
like to receive FlashTAG emails, please let me know.
Anyone can keep up with the
progress of this FlashTAG at the Advanced
Lighting Controls TAG Portal established on E3TNW.org, where we will
archive these messages, maintain a calendar, make announcements, post survey
links, and direct those interested to online and other resources, beginning
later this week.
Advanced Lighting Controls FlashTAG
The main goal of this FlashTAG
is to help Bonneville Power Administration utility programs staff prepare to
administer a new controls incentive readied for the next version of their
lighting calculator. Specifically, we will:
- Help determine what
information and level of detail should be required in reports to qualify
for the incentive.
- Prepare a list of
companies and systems that will do what is needed, including tracking
actual energy use.
- Consider the pros
and cons of pre-qualifying companies.
- Gather accounts of
actual experience with these control systems.
FlashTAGs move quickly
Unlike a full TAG, which has
multiple meetings to establish, rank, and score many technologies within a
focus area such as Lighting, FlashTAGs zero in on a particular technology or
strategy. We examine the technology and its applications and address
programmatic considerations to accelerate their adoption in the region.
The full Advanced Lighting
Controls TAG will convene twice, first during and after an E3T Showcase on the
technology on April 17th during the noon hour. FlashTAG members will
stay on the call for a half hour afterwards to debrief.
The main Advanced Lighting
Controls TAG webinar event will take place May 2nd at 9:30 am
ending before noon. At this meeting we will review and confirm the FlashTAG’s
Between now and the May meeting,
we will ask for your input on TAG Scorecard surveys for specific technologies
under consideration, and we will likely survey members on other aspects of
Advanced Lighting Controls. We will use e-mail and a listserv to exchange
information throughout this FlashTAG, as well as posting material on the Portal.
The Working Group
A handful of volunteers will
begin working to prepare a presentation exploring the technology for the April
17 E3T Showcase, meeting as a working group via conference calls several times
beginning April 2 at 1:30. If you overlooked the opportunity to join this
working group in the invitation sent Friday March 22, please contact Jack
Zeiger, firstname.lastname@example.org 360
956-2017 or contact me soon. Any TAG member who wishes to be kept directly
abreast of the Working Group’s progress may request to be added to the working
group listserv, please contact Alan.
