The course was interactive and with comprehensive content: energy efficiency in lighting, energy efficient light sources, LED lighting, natural lighting, tube lighting, control systems, interior lighting, exterior lighting, the management of outdoor lighting systems, general lighting plan of a village, influence of lighting on users health, and environmental lighting. The course included explanations about the European program Dialux, calculating and measuring energy performance according to SR-EN15193, lighting solutions to improve energy efficiency in lighting, creating a LED luminaire and an illuminating system with photovoltaic cells . We were presented some case studies about lighting in offices, schools, hotels, commercial spaces, lighting in car parks, public lighting, public lighting management.

The course is not hampered with much technical data or calculations, thus being accessible to the non-experts who are interested in the topic.

Examples and case studies show some errors made in certain choices, with an issue of liability and economic analysis of lighting, but also the influence on health and the environment.
