Lighting Savings Report

Built Environment

A lot of energy consumption happens indoors, making buildings an important target for energy efficiency. And the energy efficiency toolkit is getting smarter: emerging innovations around building systems and grid-interactive technologies are combining with proven solutions like high-efficiency windows and insulation to make the promise of decarbonization a reality in the buildings sector. But to get there, we need to do more to push energy efficiency into the market.


Lighting Savings Report

These are findings from a new report, Commercial & Industrial Lighting Lifetime and Peak Demand Savings Analysis, published jointly by the Alliance (funded by GE Current, a Daintree company) and the DesignLights Consortium (DLC).

The report, prepared by Energy Futures Group as a component of the Alliance’s Systems Efficiency Resource Hub project, additionally provides a first-of-its-kind compilation of estimates related to peak demand impacts possible through such a systems approach, noting that peak savings available for targeting from commercial and industrial lighting technologies by 2035 could be over 37,000 megawatts.
