Singapore teams with UCD on lighting center

By From page A5 | September 24, 2013

UC Davis is working with the Singapore Green Building Council and Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority to develop a lighting efficiency demonstration and training center in that country.

The three signed a memorandum of understanding on Sept. 12 laying out goals and strategies for pursuing sustainable lighting solutions.

“Singapore has been a leader in the energy efficiency arena,” said UCD design professor Michael Siminovitch, who directs the decade-old California Lighting Director Technology Center on campus, in a news release.

“This close collaboration will help build new ideas and advance best practices for efficient lighting. It will bring together different perspectives and ideas while helping bridge barriers to sustainable lighting design, and it will be mutually beneficial in addressing our carbon reduction goals.”

Buildings and households consume about 49 percent of Singapore’s electricity.
