The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) recently launched to educate building owners and managers, energy managers, specifiers, contractors, distributors, and allied trades involved in building management, design, and construction.

The site covers a broad range of application issues, including controls options, placement, technology, projects, compatibility, lamp life, and other issues involved in controls specification. It also includes a standard interface product matrix for finding product specifications, educational resources, and application support from several controls manufacturers.

“The LCA’s new Web site was formed to educate professionals and simplify controls selection, specification, and application to accelerate the adoption of their energy-saving, work environment, and pollution reduction benefits,” said Kyle Pitsor, executive director for LCA.
