Blake Jackson and Stephen Palumbo of Tsoi/Kobus and Associates and Jacob Knowles of BR+A Consulting Engineers offer "10 practical strategies to help guide decision-making to further elevate sustainable laboratory design, regarding resource utilization, carbon footprint and long-term viability." Strategy No. 1: Reduce lighting power densities. The authors note that building codes are lowering LPD thresholds, thanks to the availability of cheaper and more energy-efficient LEDs for ambient and task lighting.
