The State Partnership for Energy Efficient Demonstrations (SPEED) program drives the market adoption of energy efficient technologies. Managed through the California Institute for Energy and Environment (CIEE), SPEED has conducted more than 100 demonstrations and other technology-transfer projects across the state, showcasing the benefits of best practices and state-of-the-art solutions.

UC Davis Smart Lighting Initiative: Lighting the Way to a Sustainable 2nd Century

05/01/2012

Lighting accounts for about a quarter of California’s electricity use, and installing energy-efficient lighting can lead to significant energy, maintenance, carbon, and economic savings, according to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). In September 2010, the CPUC adopted a plan to achieve a 60–80% reduction in statewide electrical lighting consumption by 2020.

Adaptive LED Post-top Luminaires, Los Angeles Trade Technical College

05/01/2012

In the summer of 2010 the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) and Philips Hadco produced an adaptive solution that combined a dimmable LED source and a mounting collar equipped with occupancy sensors. The collar provides 360-degree occupancy sensor coverage. This demonstration involved whole-head replacement of the existing luminaires, but results could also be achieved with a retrofit kit. The new luminaires feature good color quality, improved efficiency and a longer lifespan.

Philips Energy Advantage CDM lamps with AllStart

06/01/2011

Philips Lighting has released a ceramic metal halide, direct-retrofit lamp that can be used with both probe- and pulse-start ballasts. The Philips Energy Advantage CDM lamp with AllStart Technology saves energy, improves efficacy and color rendering, maintains light levels, and is more affordable than traditional metal halide (MH) lamps. Philips says the lamps “provide true universal operation regardless of orientation without compromising light quality, and make installation and maintenance easier than ever.” 

Adaptive HID Wall Packs at CSU Chico

06/01/2010

Philips Day-Brite and CLTC partnered on this SPEED-sponsored project to demonstrate a adaptive high intensity discharge (HID) wall pack from Philips Day-Brite’s established NiteBrites product line. The product provides dynamic light levels to surrounding areas based on occupancy using a single HID lamp and fixture-integrated occupancy sensor. 

Bi-level Street and Parking Area Luminaires at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

05/01/2010

PIER-sponsored research, development, and demonstration has focused on the combination of occupancy-based lighting controls and broad-spectrum light sources to create intelligent, bi-level luminaires designed for street and parking area applications. These products achieve 30 – 75% energy savings compared to traditional street and area luminaires, meet stringent energy-efficiency standards, and provide excellent light distribution for reduced night sky pollution. 

Curfew Dimming Parking and Area Luminaires at CSU Long Beach

06/01/2012

Many of the emerging light sources used for exterior lighting, namely light-emitting diode (LED) and advanced ceramic metal halide (CMH) lamps, provide full-range dimming. Occupancy sensors have provided adaptive lighting controls in exterior parking and area lighting applications, but some applications are not compatible with sensor coverage patterns. In these scenarios, combining dimmable sources with a controller that dims based on time of day can achieve comparable energy savings to utilizing occupancy sensors.
