LD+A – The New York Energy Conservation Expo (NYECE) is dedicated to displaying energy conserving devices and systems on a year-round basis. The director of NYECE met with CLTC director, Michael Siminovitch, to discuss conservation, lighting, and collaboration.
Lighting Controls Association – The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) organized a study in eight private offices at the University of California, Davis in 2008 to attempt to generate useful data related to these questions.
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.
UC Davis – UC Davis' "smart" outdoor lighting network incorporates state-of-the-art technologies developed through CLTC.
PG&E—LED retail lighting showcase allows boutique owners to see, firsthand, how LED lamps perform in a realistic store setting.
CLTC – The University of California, Davis, will receive a best-practice award for its adaptive exterior lighting system at this year's California Higher Education Sustainability Conference (CHESC), June 23–27, 2013 at UC Santa Barbara. The smart lighting network consists of more than 1,500 dimmable LED luminaires, occupancy sensors, and a radio-frequency network control system. The project is saving UC Davis an estimated 1 million kilowatt hours and $100,000 annually.
This lighting handbook and retrofit guide aims to assist in the process of developing high-performance, energy efficient, quality lighting retrofits for the Forest Service community. During the development of this guide, field evaluations were made to a wide range of Forest Service facilities in an effort to identify the most applicable recommendations.
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) business fact sheet looking at current solid-state lighting options for existing luminaries.
This guide aims to assist in the process of integrating energy-efficient lighting technologies as retrofits into national parks, and it offers tips for evaluating light sources, performing a lighting audit, and pairing lamps with lighting controls. This guide is intended to function as an overview of opportunities that exist for lighting improvements in visitor centers in the National Park Service facilities, as well as in other parks throughout the United States.
The objective of the Smart Corridor project is to quantify the potential energy savings in corridor lighting by implementing bi-level lighting technologies in commercial spaces such as office, hospitality, and educational buildings while also evaluating the market potential for the bi-level lighting strategy. The energy savings data gathered from this project is crucial to the large-scale implementation of bi-level strategies, as it will support the inclusion of bi-level lighting practices for secondary spaces in utility incentive programs and, eventually, building code language.
