UC Davis Smart Lighting Initiative: Lighting the Way to a Sustainable 2nd Century

05/01/2012

Lighting accounts for about a quarter of California’s electricity use, and installing energy-efficient lighting can lead to significant energy, maintenance, carbon, and economic savings, according to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). In September 2010, the CPUC adopted a plan to achieve a 60–80% reduction in statewide electrical lighting consumption by 2020.

Integrated Office Lighting System at UC Davis

The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) partnered with Finelite, Inc. and Adura Technologies to develop and demonstrate a unique, wireless task/ambient office lighting solution ideally suited for the retrofit market. The system consists of two key elements: a task/ambient lighting system and advanced, wireless lighting controls. The combination provides substantially reduced energy use, improved lighting quality, and personal lighting control for individual work spaces, without the need for any additional wiring or rewiring of existing luminaires or lighting circuits.

UC Davis Smart Lighting Initiative

The UC Davis Smart Lighting Initiative was established in 2010 to improve the quality and efficiency of both indoor and outdoor lighting on campus. The initiative's primary goal is to reduce UC Davis's electricity use for lighting by 60 percent, based on 2007 levels of energy use. The effort was inspired by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and its call to reduce statewide electricity consumption for lighting by 60 percent or more by 2020.
