CLTC Releases 2019 Nonresidential Lighting & Electrical Power Distribution Guide

Published: Fri, 04/03/2020

CLTC is excited to announce that our 2019 Nonresidential Lighting and Electrical Power Distribution Guide is now available!  The guide assists builders and lighting industry professionals in navigating the nonresidential lighting and electrical power distribution portions of California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6 or Energy Code) that took effect on January 1, 2020. 

Adaptive Sensor-Based Lighting for Security Applications

Traditional outdoor lighting technologies operate at full power throughout the night, even when areas are vacant.  This extra load, energy waste and light pollution can be averted by updating the lighting system with energy-efficient light sources and lighting controls.  By installing these technologies, adaptive lighting strategies can be implemented that provide the right amount of light when and where it is needed.  

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.

The commercialization of Echelon's Lumewave MWX-LVE long-range outdoor microwave sensor illustrates CLTC's success in supporting advanced sensors for adaptive outdoor applications.

CLTC demonstrated and supported the next-generation sensor, which detects movement and can distinguish between slow and fast moving objects such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorized vehicles. The sensor reacts to the size of objects from longer distances, automatically raising the light levels to high output when the areas are occupied and lowering them when areas are vacant.

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.
