FSTC Research Engineer, Kong Sham, teaches students from the student-led statewide energy-efficiency program, PowerSave Green Campus, how to perform a comprehensive energy and water audit at their UCLA campus dining hall. For several years the FSTC has partnered with the Alliance to Save Energy and their PowerSave Green Campus program, to present hands-on and classroom based educational sessions for the students of the program, which currently represent over 100 students at 23 UCs and CSUs across the state. This particular session took place at the 9th Annual 2013 PowerSave Green Campus Energy Efficiency Summit.

The Annual Summits give new and experienced PowerSave Green Campus interns the opportunity to attend training sessions on project planning, learn about best practice projects and technologies that have been successful at a number of campuses, and network with professional who have made a career in the energy field.
Here, Kong is demonstrating some advanced LED technologies for MR-16 applications that would work well in the dining hall serving areas and foodservice retail locations on campus – looking great while reducing electric use of the fixtures significantly. These MR16 LEDs are meant to replace halogen lamps and will save about 75% of the energy consumed per watt.
