IES LD+A Research Matters: Defining Accuracy - Energy Use Reporting through Lighting Control Systems

Publication Date: 

One of the promises of networked lighting controls is to monitor energy use over time and adjust the system to achieve the best possible performance.  Facility managers can match the reporting to expectations and change settings to capture maximum savings.  The promise of real-time energy monitoring has also piqued the interest of utility program managers in locations in the U.S. where rebates assist with the accelerated adoption of emerging technologies. 

The CLTC research published in the November 2015 issue of LD+A examines commercially available advanced lighting control systems and their ability to fulfill these promises.
