Integrated Lighting Campaign
Lighting is responsible for more than 20% of the total commercial building energy use in the United States. Installing energy-efficient lighting and controls systems can provide significant energy savings for nearly all commercial building types. New connected lighting technologies that can integrate with other building systems (like HVAC and plug load controls) present a new opportunity for even deeper energy savings – an additional 50% or more. The data collected by these advanced technologies can give building owners additional insights into how their building operates and opportunities for improvements.
The Integrated Lighting Campaign helps facility owners and managers take advantage of the savings opportunities and benefits of advanced lighting controls and integrated lighting systems. Building on the success of the Interior Lighting Campaign (2015-2019), the Integrated Lighting Campaign provides participants with guidance, technical assistance, and access to resources, as well as recognition for innovative lighting projects.
