SPEED Business Case: Adaptive Street and Area Lighting

06/13/2014

This business case explores various lighting control options for LED retrofits of street and area lighting, along with funding and financing sources. It provides a general economic analysis of the costs and benefits associated with street/area retrofits and new-construction installations of post-top luminaires. The scenarios presented in this business case analysis have the potential to reduce lighting energy use and carbon emissions 72–93%, in areas with an average occupancy rate of 20%.
 

Adaptive Corridor Lighting, UC San Francisco

Adaptive Corridor Lighting Demonstration at UCSF
05/28/2014

In 2013 the SPEED team collaborated with UC San Francisco to demonstrate three lighting retrofits of fluorescent fixtures. Three control systems, each with different system architectures, were installed in three different UCSF corridors. All three systems utilize occupancy controls, but each one provides a different level of control, different programming capabilities, and energy and maintenance monitoring features. The demonstrations produced energy savings of 53–68%, based on occupancy rates of 12–16%.
