LED Linear Retrofit Solutions and Advanced Lighting Control Systems for Small Commercial Retail Applications

Linear fluorescent lamps account for 83 percent of installed lamps in the California commercial sector per a lighting market characterization performed in 2014. LED lighting products are receiving attention for their potential to replace fluorescent lighting, reduce energy use and improve lighting quality in a variety of indoor commercial applications, including offices, classrooms and retail stores. LED alternatives to linear fluorescent lighting products fall into three main categories: linear retrofit lamp solutions, linear retrofits for troffers and dedicated luminaires.

Case Study: UC Davis Exterior Lighting Retrofit

06/01/2009

Most parking garages use high intensity discharge light sources that operate continuously regardless of lighting needs. These facilities typically do not employ energy-saving control strategies such as daylighting or time clock scheduling, and no considerations are made for lighting control based on occupancy. Garage lighting, designed to only a single static level, wastes energy and contributes to peak demand during the day and light pollution at night.

2013 California Higher Education Sustainability Conference

06/24/2013 to 06/25/2013

Join UC Davis representatives, including staff from CLTC and WCEC, at this year's CHESC event hosted by UC Santa Barbara. Visit booth #203 to learn about lighting and HVAC innovations tested through the State Partnership for Energy Efficient Demonstrations (SPEED). Information on incentives and project financing options will also be available.

2009 Campus Lighting Retrofit Forum Presentations

07/01/2009

Reducing energy use and maintenance costs with demonstrated lighting technologies — With the growing availability of new technologies, smart lighting systems, wireless controls, and improvements on traditional sources, the search for lighting solutions for campus applications is growing more complex. Presentations included lighting technology choices for exterior lighting, office workspaces, classrooms, and demonstration installations. Case studies showed the results of projects that have recently been installed.

PIER Solutions for Classrooms and Conference Rooms

11/01/2009

PIER-sponsored research, development and demonstration (RD&D) has focused on development of integrated lighting systems for shared occupant spaces such as classrooms and conference rooms. These systems combine energy-efficient luminaires, multi-level scene control, occupancy sensors and daylight harvesting to create optimized lighting systems tailored for the modern learning space. 

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.
