LD+A – CLTC researchers incorporated passive infrared (PIR) occupancy sensors and networked controls into a test set of dimmable LED roadway fixtures. The adaptive street lighting system yielded energy savings 27 to 42 percent greater than when the fixtures operated at a static level. All occupants, 100 percent, were detected by the PIR occupancy sensor selected for field testing, whether they were traveling on foot, by bicycle, on a motorcycle, or in an automobile.

CLTC's website is now one of the best online resources for those engaged in lighting research, development, and commercial innovation. Our new site is updated and streamlined for faster, easier navigation, and it offers a wealth of news and information on innovative projects and demonstrations. It also features upcoming events, case studies, articles and publications, video clips, and more. We hope you enjoy exploring our new website.
Join UC Davis representatives, including staff from CLTC and WCEC, at this year's CHESC event hosted by UC Santa Barbara. Visit booth #203 to learn about lighting and HVAC innovations tested through the State Partnership for Energy Efficient Demonstrations (SPEED). Information on incentives and project financing options will also be available.
Reducing energy use and maintenance costs with demonstrated lighting technologies — With the growing availability of new technologies, smart lighting systems, wireless controls, and improvements on traditional sources, the search for lighting solutions for campus applications is growing more complex. Presentations included lighting technology choices for exterior lighting, office workspaces, classrooms, and demonstration installations. Case studies showed the results of projects that have recently been installed.
CLTC and UC Davis have partnered with affiliate American Honda Motor Co., Inc. on the Honda Smart Home US project. Groundbreaking took place April 23, 2013 at UC Davis West Village. Project leaders from UC Davis and Honda celebrated the project's completion at an open house event on March 25, 2014. The zero net energy (ZNE) home is a model of residential sustainability, demonstrating best-practice solutions for lighting in new construction projects.
