About: Emergency lighting is so often poorly understood, standards are misinterpreted, there is value engineering by contractors and luminaire suppliers but most of all ignorance about the process of Measurement and Verification, knowledge about how M & V is to be conducted for the emergency lighting environment, comparison of actual results to lighting design, testing, luminaire battery recovery and finally the commissioning process.  In this webinar, we will lift the veil of this complex subject.
