The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) includes full-scale laboratories for research and development, prototyping, and product testing. Many of CLTC’s affiliates and partners conduct early testing at CLTC, prior to testing at a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory. This allows them to bring better solutions to market faster. Many of the patented sensors, controls, algorithms, luminaires, and lighting system technologies that originated in CLTC's labs are now transforming lighting energy use in California, across the U.S., and beyond. CLTC also conducts independent product testing and market research, providing accurate data on the state of the lighting market to regulators and end-users.
Who We Are
As lighting technology changes, so too does the terminology used to describe it.
The majority of building power distribution systems use alternating current (AC) sourced from a power grid.
CLTC recently completed a four-year EPIC-sponsored research program that included a long-term performance evaluation
