DOE Recognizes 10 Organizations in 2019 Interior Lighting Campaign

DOE’s Better Buildings Interior Lighting Campaign (ILC) recognized 10 organizations for integrating highly-efficient lighting equipment solutions into their portfolios demonstrating typical energy savings of more than 50%. Additionally, nine of the organizations incorporated lighting controls such as dimmers, timers, and occupancy sensors bringing total energy savings to as much as 80%. These leadership efforts, as well as new recognition for innovative projects incorporating integrated controls between lighting and other building systems like HVAC and plug loads, were presenting at the Illuminating Engineering Society’s Annual Conference in August. Cumulatively, almost 1 million luminaires were upgraded with an annual savings of $10 million. Since 2015, ILC Participants have installed or upgraded more than 3.5 million lighting and controls systems, with an expected savings of over $84 million to building owners.
