Lighting Savings Report | Alliance to Save Energy

Lighting Savings Report


Limitations of state efficiency policies routinely result in understated energy savings potential of lighting systems, and particularly advanced lighting control technologies, inadvertently leaving substantial savings on the table. Efficiency programs that capitalize on system-level lighting efficiency measures – combining lighting technology upgrades with networked lighting controls – could see an additional 22 percent lifetime energy savings on average.

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.
