The California Lighting Technology Center’s 2013 Outdoor Lighting Guide for Title 24, Part 6 compliance is designed to help builders, lighting industry professionals, and others navigate the nonresidential outdoor lighting portion of California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards. The new standards, which took effect July 1, 2014, include updated requirements for retrofit standards, lighting controls, and uplight and glare limits.
CLTC is providing key guidance and coordination in developing the next generation of Title 24, Part 6 standards for residential applications. The proposed lighting measures in the draft 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards will increase the adoption of high efficacy and high quality solid-state lighting products in new homes being built.

The LED Show 2014, Los Angeles, CA
Presented by Kelly Cunningham
Outreach Director Kelly Cunningham presented CLTC case study findings at The LED Show, September 16 in Los Angeles, CA. Attendees learned the results of indoor and outdoor lighting installations that paired LED sources with networked adaptive control systems. The presentation covered end-user feedback and data indicating energy savings of up to 90 percent.
The CASE-Q DP Program Manual contains the requirements and processes for future field demonstrations. It can be used by any team wishing to conduct a sound, thorough and well-documented technology demonstration. In addition to providing this resource, the CASE-Q DP directly supports identification, selection, installation and performance assessments of energy-efficient building technologies ready for current or near-term inclusion in California's Codes and Standards Enhancement (CASE) initiatives.
