Adaptive exterior lighting products are entering the marketplace at a rapid rate. By coupling features such as occupancy-based lighting controls with efficacious, dimmable sources, these solutions offer 30 – 75% energy savings over traditional systems.
The outdoor lighting products presented in this compendium utilize features that have been tested and verified through RD&D activities supported by the California Energy Commission. CLTC case studies demonstrated the commercial readiness of these technology features as they progressed from the lab to the marketplace. This collection focuses on the combination of occupancy-based lighting controls and dynamically tunable light sources. It is not intended as a comprehensive catalog, but offers a starting point for facility managers considering the implementation of adaptive lighting technologies today.
