- Scaling Up Education: How to train the workforce on networked lighting controls technology?
|10:00am - 10:15am
|10:15am - 11:00am
Small group breakouts on various topics related to NLC program design and technology adoption:
- Preparing for Full Scale Adoption
What market and technology characteristics are necessary to allow for full scale adoption? What can the different stakeholder groups do to prepare for this change?
- Program Marketing
What is the best way to market and message a controls program? What are the ways to make contractors, end users, and manufacturer representatives more aware of available incentives and product benefits? What are the attributes of an effective promotional program?
What kind of training is needed? What content is online versus in-person? How should training be incentivized?
- Ease of Use
How can we make it easier for contractors, end users, and manufacturer reps to participate in incentive programs? Is an incentive worth the trouble to get it? What are attributes and characteristics of a simple, easy-to-use NLC program?
- Utility Incentives
In this scenario, utilities would like to increase their incentives for networked lighting controls but are concerned about the cost-effectiveness and risk of not realizing the savings they predict. How do they justify higher incentives and mitigate risk?
- Non-Energy Benefits
The value of each of these benefits varies by vertical market segment, and may be described in various ways by different actors. When the value of these benefits can be clearly communicated and/or quantified, they can be leveraged to increase sales and adoption of the technology. As the IoT market grows, new benefits are created, and the scope of known benefits expands. When quantified, some utilities may even be able to incorporate them into their cost-effectiveness calculations.
