UC Davis Institutional-Level Adaptive Controls for Exterior Lighting

02/24/2014

The Institutional-level Adaptive Controls for Exterior Lighting system incorporates exterior light points — pathways, building perimeters, parking lots, and roadways — into one smart, wireless system.

Originally launched as a pilot study, this system has since been installed for over 1,600 luminaires at the University of California, Davis.

Smart Lighting Phase 2 in 43 buildings

Phase 2 of the UC Davis Smart Lighting Initiative will upgrade lighting in offices, labs, classrooms, corridors, and other spaces in selected buildings built in 1985 or later. Implementation of energy-efficient light sources, vacancy sensors and lighting control systems will reduce energy use by an estimated 5.5 million kilowatt-hours annually, saving the campus about $475,000, according to Scott Arntzen, senior project manager with Design and Construction Management.
