In designing a lighting platform for exterior spaces, there are unique challenges to be met. Environments like academic and corporate campuses, as well as municipal entities, have varying needs and requirements. To accommodate for the time of day, the season and activities on site at any moment, the lighting will have to be flexible and highly customizable.
The CASE-Q DP Program Manual contains the requirements and processes for future field demonstrations. It can be used by any team wishing to conduct a sound, thorough and well-documented technology demonstration. In addition to providing this resource, the CASE-Q DP directly supports identification, selection, installation and performance assessments of energy-efficient building technologies ready for current or near-term inclusion in California's Codes and Standards Enhancement (CASE) initiatives.

Outreach Director Kelly Cunningham presented CLTC case study findings at The LED Show, September 16 in Los Angeles, CA. Attendees learned the results of indoor and outdoor lighting installations that paired LED sources with networked adaptive control systems. The presentation covered end-user feedback and data indicating energy savings of up to 90 percent.

UC Davis News and Information—As ambulances at a Vacaville hospital speed off to their next patient, an ultrasmart, energy-efficient system is lighting the way. Installed in partnership with the University of California, Davis, the lighting system now illuminates the emergency vehicle routes, parking lots and outdoor walkways of the NorthBay VacaValley Hospital. The system is reducing outdoor lighting energy use at the 24-hour site by 66 percent, saving about 29,000 kilowatt-hours annually -- enough to offset the greenhouse gas emissions of 7.2 tons of waste.
LD+A – Multiple studies have demonstrated the significant energy savings that bi-level, occupancy-based lighting controls can achieve in outdoor applications. These controls maintain recommended illumination levels during occupied periods and automatically dim lights, reducing power by 50 percent or more, during vacant periods.
