The U.S. Department of Energy issued the Low-Cost Wireless Metering Challenge encouraging manufacturers to produce a cost-effective, accurate, wireless system capable of measuring various electric loads within a building and wirelessly communicating the data. Although commercial buildings spend over 120 billion dollars annually on electricity, much of that energy is not measured or managed. Data provided by submeters can provide visibility on energy use to building owners and operators, allowing them to strategically implement energy efficiency measures that can save money. Unfortunately, the technology for submetering has been cost-prohibitive putting savings out of reach in many circumstances. On May 15, 2017, DOE recognized wireless technology company Meazon for their exemplary performance in meeting the specifications. Although Meazon is the only company to meet the specification so far, the performance specification stands as an opportunity for other organizations to enhance the market for low cost submetering. This webinar gave Better Buildings partners an opportunity to learn more about the challenge, its specifications, and the outcome.

Come learn about the Interior Lighting Campaign – a joint effort by the U.S. Department of Energy, Building Owners and Managers Association International, International Facility Management Association, and the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America. The ILC is a recognition and guidance program designed to help facility owners and managers take advantage of savings opportunities from high efficiency interior lighting solutions, with a specific focus on troffer lighting and associated controls. Troffers are the ubiquitous rectangular fixtures recessed or mounted to the ceiling, and represent half of all commercial fluorescent fixtures. Their annual energy use equates to that consumed each year by more than 8 million homes. New technologies for troffers allow for energy savings of 60%, and much more when coupled with lighting controls. The Campaign offers resources and limited technical assistance to those who join, and the potential for awards to those whose sites demonstrate exemplary performance. In addition to an overview of the Campaign, this webinar discussed high efficiency troffer and associated controls options, and Yamaha Motor Corporation’s experiences as they consider upgrading thousands of troffers.

In hospitality facilities, past efforts to reduce lighting energy use have mostly consisted of implementing compact fluorescent lamps (CFL). CFLs offer reduced energy consumption, higher efficacy, and much longer lifetimes than incandescent and halogen lamps, but they also have drawbacks. LEDs improve upon many of these drawbacks and offer an attractive combination of additional energy savings, longer lifetimes, and other lighting and control benefits. The Hilton Columbus Downtown hotel installed more than 3700 dimmable LED downlights in guest rooms at 450,000 square foot facility, which opened in October 2012. Why did they choose LED and not CFL? Do the LEDs deliver the light levels and color quality needed? How did they make sure the dimming and controls would work properly? Are they saving energy? Did they pay more initially? Would they do it again, and what would they change?
