ATLANTA – October 25, 2017
-- Acuity Brands, Inc.
(NYSE: AYI) announced today Tricia Foster, Director-Market Development, Acuity Brands Lighting, will be presenting a case study on a Texas School District’s first-hand experience using Tunable White lighting in several classrooms. Foster will present at the 2018 Strategies in Light Conference in February, and will be joined by Catherine Hollenshead, Electrical Engineer and Lighting Specialist with Estes, Mcclure & Associates, Inc., a Texas-based MEP engineering and consulting firm, who specified the district’s classroom lighting systems.
“Tunable White lighting and its potential impact on the K-12 learning environment has been the subject of a number of research studies, but not a lot of practical, in-the-classroom experience exists,” says Foster. “Catherine and I had the opportunity with the Davis Elementary School in Carrollton, TX, to work with the school administration, teachers and students to gain insight and feedback on just how effective lighting can be on student behavior and performance.”
“As part of our presentation, we will walk through deploying a Tunable White system into the classroom,” adds Holleshead. “We will review the return on investment from energy savings over the previous fluorescent lighting system, but also dig into the multiple benefits to the teachers and impact on students as they experience lighting that can be adjusted to mood, activity, time of day and other factors.”
The 2018 Strategies in Light Conference will be held, February 13-15, 2018, at the Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach CA. For more information or to register click here
