LD+A Energy Advisor: CLTC

05/01/2009

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. 

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

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 Wins Best-Practice Award for Lighting

06/01/2013

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.

Bear Valley Visitor Center Lighting Retrofit Guide for National Parks

01/01/2011

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.

SCE Smart Corridors: Bi-level Lighting for Office Applications

10/01/2011

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.
