Lighting Fact Sheets for 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards

02/23/2017

The California Lighting Technology Center has developed a series of fact sheets designed to raise awareness of the 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards, which took effect on January 1, 2017. These materials are intended to increase knowledge and implementation of code-compliant lighting for California’s residential and non-residential buildings. 

Available fact sheets focus on key areas of the Energy Standards including:

Driving Research and Leadership in Buildings and Transportation Efficiency

CLTC, in collaboration with the Office of Naval Research, developed new, improved strategies and technologies for occupancy sensing in outdoor applications that address the shortcomings of existing strategies and technologies.  The project approach included the systematic identification of the pros and cons of existing strategies and technologies, formulation of new strategies and/or technologies, and implementation of new approaches in the form of laboratory prototypes that will be tested and demonstrated in the laboratory and in the field.

CLTC is partnering with Liberty to create a zero net energy community in West Sacramento along the Sacramento River. The Liberty Lighting Guide provides design and technical specifications, application of directives, as well as Title 24 code compliance requirements for residential, outdoor, private community clubhouses, K – 8 schools, private clubhouses, neighborhood commercial spaces, parks, greenbelts, trails, sports, and recreation centers.

Dynamic Exterior Lighting for Energy and Cost Savings in Department of Defense Installations

03/01/2015

Exterior lighting for streets, roadways, parking lots, and other outside sites represents nearly 10% of the electricity consumed on military bases. Lighting in these areas typically consists of high pressure sodium or sometimes metal halide lamps that are normally controlled by photo-sensors located centrally or sometimes on each fixture. This limited functionality includes turning the lights on in the evening and off in the morning regardless of occupancy levels, thereby consuming more electricity than necessary.

2013 Title 24, Part 6 Outdoor Lighting Guide

2013 Title 24, Part 6 Outdoor Lighting Guide
02/24/2015

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.
