Bui Engineers Net Zero MOB: Decidedly Un-Institutional
by Lois I. Hutchinson
 
Kaiser Permanente
For 20 years electrical engineer Duc Bui has supported the sustainability goals of Kaiser Permanente and its facilities. And 2014 saw the opening of the healthcare giant's first net zero design: the Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley Specialty Medical Office Building. To meet net zero energy, the lighting power density goal for Bui's dpb engineers inc. was 30% below Title 24 2013 requirements - even though engineering began in 2010. Bui's decision to use all LED lighting ultimately achieved a connected load 60% below Title 24 2013: a stingy 0.44 W/sqft.

Yellow to Blue: the Recent History of Lighting and Color
A recent LA Times article that calls attention to the increasing prevalence of blinding headlights on the road at night got me thinking about why this is happening and what it means for the near future of lighting. Maybe it's just my aging eyes, but at times I find myself flashing oncoming cars who appear to have their brights on but don't, because they're too bright and blinding. And the encroaching illumination of roadways with high blue content glaring LED lamps is only exacerbating the situation. These two developments are connected, because as lighting is getting more energy efficient and the cost of new lighting technology is dropping, light is getting bluer.
