LED Vanity Luminaire

LED Vanity Luminaire

Effective July 1, 2014, California’s new Title 24, Part 6 standards require that bathrooms in residential homes have at least one high-efficacy luminaire installed in them. (The remaining installed luminaires may be low efficacy and controlled by a vacancy sensor.)

In an effort to accelerate market advancement in this product category, CLTC is collaborating with Pacific Gas and Electric Company and LED manufacturer Seoul Semiconductor to develop a high-efficacy, “best-in-class” LED vanity luminaire for residential bathrooms.

All High Efficacy Lighting for Residential Applications

All High Efficacy Lighting for Residential Applications

California’s current Title 24 requirements for building energy efficiency call for some high-efficacy lighting in a limited number of residential space types, such as kitchens and bathrooms. A future code requirement that all residential lighting be high efficacy has the potential to yield significant energy savings across the state, but implementation must first be proven practical and cost-effective.

Adaptive Circadian Lighting Demonstration: Honda Smart Home US

CLTC and UC Davis have partnered with affiliate American Honda Motor Co., Inc. on the Honda Smart Home US project. Groundbreaking took place April 23, 2013 at UC Davis West Village. Project leaders from UC Davis and Honda celebrated the project's completion at an open house event on March 25, 2014. The zero net energy (ZNE) home is a model of residential sustainability, demonstrating best-practice solutions for lighting in new construction projects.

UC Davis Smart Lighting Initiative

UC Davis Smart Lighting Initiative

The UC Davis Smart Lighting Initiative was established in 2010 to improve the quality and efficiency of both indoor and outdoor lighting on campus. The initiative's primary goal is to reduce UC Davis's electricity use for lighting by 60 percent, based on 2007 levels of energy use. The effort was inspired by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and its call to reduce statewide electricity consumption for lighting by 60 percent or more by 2020.

CPUC Support

CPUC Support

CLTC communicates and collaborates with the Energy Division of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to provide objective information and expert analysis that may inform the Commission’s lighting-related energy policies, programs and mandates. CLTC supports the CPUC’s Energy Division in its lighting-related goals, initiatives and activities, including the Lighting Action Plan, a near-term implementation guide for achieving the goals stated in the Lighting Chapter of California’s Long-Term Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan.
