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.
A significant amount of energy can be saved in our homes today with the use of energy-efficient lighting technologies; many of these approaches also improve lighting quality and comport. The following is a list of some of the best technologies you can use today.
Using compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) to save lighting energy in your home.
This lighting handbook and retrofit guide aims to assist in the process of developing high-performance, energy efficient, quality lighting retrofits for the Forest Service community. During the development of this guide, field evaluations were made to a wide range of Forest Service facilities in an effort to identify the most applicable recommendations.
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) business fact sheet looking at current solid-state lighting options for existing luminaries.
This document provides overviews of exterior lighting technologies that would best be integrated into national parks as retrofits or new designs, as well as tips for evaluating light sources, performing a lighting audit, and pairing lamps with lighting controls. The key issues to consider when performing a retrofit or new lighting design are energy, cost, and maintenance savings, and this guide is intended to help make these decisions easier.
Best practices and lighting designs to help builders comply with California’s 2008 Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards.

This guide aims to assist in the process of integrating energy-efficient lighting technologies as retrofits into national parks, and it offers tips for evaluating light sources, performing a lighting audit, and pairing lamps with lighting controls. This guide is intended to function as an overview of opportunities that exist for lighting improvements in visitor centers in the National Park Service facilities, as well as in other parks throughout the United States.
Adaptive exterior lighting is a relatively new concept recognized by the lighting industry and energy regulators as a potential method to increase energy savings in outdoor applications. This method of lighting effectively reduces energy use in spaces with low occupancy rates where a minimum light level is required for safety or other reasons, preventing the lights from being completely extinguished. This is a guide for implementing adaptive, energy-efficient exterior lighting.
Changes to the lighting requirements under Title 24, Part 6 took effect July 1, 2014. This brief guide offers an overview of important requirements and major updates to these lighting codes and standards.
