Berkeley Begins LED Streetlight Project

The City of Berkeley recently approved a project to upgrade approximately 8,000 streetlights to LED technology by the end of 2014. The project is expected to cut the city’s CO2 emissions from streetlight energy consumption by 50% and reduce Berkeley’s total emissions by about 7%.

“We would like to thank the Bay Area Climate Collaborative, California Energy Commission and the California Lighting Technology Center for their support in getting this project to design and construction,” said Phillip Harrington, Berkeley’s Deputy Public Works Director.

LED Retrofit Options for Linear Fluorescent Luminaires

Fluorescent lamps currently constitute 80 percent of lamps installed in the U.S. commercial sector, according to the Department of Energy's latest Lighting Market Characterization report. LED lighting products are receiving a great deal of 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.

Honda Smart Home US

04/03/2014


The Honda Smart Home US is a model zero net energy (ZNE) home located in the UC Davis West Village. Honda collaborated with UC Davis, CLTC and WCEC to build this forward-thinking example of residential sustainability. The home includes daylighting, advanced lighting controls, and high-efficacy, circadian-friendly LED lighting.

ZNE Model Home Opens Its Doors

Published: Fri, 03/14/2014

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. hosted an open house event to showcase the Honda Smart Home US on Tuesday, March 25 at UC Davis West Village. UC Davis, CLTC and the WCEC collaborated with Honda to design and build the model zero net energy (ZNE) home. It uses a photovoltaic (PV) system and ultra-efficient lighting and HVAC technologies to produce more power than household operations consume.

UC Davis Institutional-Level Adaptive Controls for Exterior Lighting

02/24/2014

The Institutional-level Adaptive Controls for Exterior Lighting system incorporates exterior light points — pathways, building perimeters, parking lots, and roadways — into one smart, wireless system.

Originally launched as a pilot study, this system has since been installed for over 1,600 luminaires at the University of California, Davis.

LEDs: The Next-Generation Light Source

08/31/2010

This paper reviews the key market and technology drivers associated with the emerging application of light-emitting diode (LED) technology in the lighting of buildings. The paper focused primarily on the evolving marketplace, the technology, and how current market and regulatory pressures will form the key drivers for near-term and long-term market penetration for emerging light sources.

Seoul Semiconductor and LEDLab Team Up with CLTC, UC Davis for 10th Annual Luminaire Design Competition

02/07/2014

This year, 2014, marks the 10th Annual Luminaire Design Competition for students enrolled in Designing with Light (DES 136 B) at the University of California, Davis. The competition gives students the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art lighting technologies and to share their designs with professionals in the lighting industry. Seoul Semiconductor and LEDLab supported the 2014 competition and provided each student with an Acrich2 LED module for use in their energy-efficient outdoor luminaire prototypes.
