Codes and Standards Enhancement—Quality Demonstration Program


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.

Performance Testing Report: Omni-directional LED Replacement Lamps


A number of lighting manufacturers now produce LED replacement lamps for traditional 60W incandescent lamps, and stakeholders at the state and national levels face decisions regarding quality standards for this product category. To assist these stakeholders and assess the current state of this segment of the lighting market, CLTC performed photometric and electrical tests on samples of 26 commercially available A19 and A21 omnidirectional LED replacement products.
