Save Energy and Money in Troffer Lighting: Join the Interior Lighting Campaign Now

This webinar highlighted 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.
