Eva Sweeney, Facilities and Services Dept., UIUC.
December 2, 2008
The presentation will focus on fluorescent lighting retrofits as a major component of UIUC's sustainability strategies. Ms. Sweeney will begin with an introduction to sustainability goals here at UIUC; why UIUC is choosing to undertake retrofits vs. total replacement; and various technical considerations and some of the lessons learned, from a facility management / project engineer point of view. As this project is under a grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation (ICECF),information on that grant process will also be shared. However, all the material will be equally applicable to attendees interested in the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) or other incentive programs for fluorescent retrofits. The seminar will be broadcast live on the ISTC website www.istc.illinois.edu and archived there for later viewing.
