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.

UC Davis News and Information—As ambulances at a Vacaville hospital speed off to their next patient, an ultrasmart, energy-efficient system is lighting the way. Installed in partnership with the University of California, Davis, the lighting system now illuminates the emergency vehicle routes, parking lots and outdoor walkways of the NorthBay VacaValley Hospital. The system is reducing outdoor lighting energy use at the 24-hour site by 66 percent, saving about 29,000 kilowatt-hours annually -- enough to offset the greenhouse gas emissions of 7.2 tons of waste.
LD+A – Multiple studies have demonstrated the significant energy savings that bi-level, occupancy-based lighting controls can achieve in outdoor applications. These controls maintain recommended illumination levels during occupied periods and automatically dim lights, reducing power by 50 percent or more, during vacant periods.
On August 19, 2014, CLTC Co-director Dr. Konstantinos Papamichael delivered the keynote address at the SSLNet Conference, hosted by the Smart Sustainable Lighting Network in Toronto. Workshops were held in conjunction with the conference on August 18 and 20.
Under California's latest Title 24, Part 6 standards, new installations of exterior lighting must be controlled by motion sensors. Adding the same adaptive features to the lighting already installed in parking lots throughout California could also achieve sizable energy and cost savings in a very short period of time.
California’s newest Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6) take effect July 1, 2014 and include an unprecedented number of requirements for lighting controls. To ensure newly installed lighting controls operate properly, the new standards also require that a certified lighting controls acceptance test technician conduct and document all required lighting controls acceptance tests.
