Applying Energy-efficient Lighting in New Home Construction

Residential Lighting In this project, the Lighting Research Center minimized the use of recessed incandescent downlights in the demonstration home by using the natural lines of the home and creating coves and valances, making indirect fluorescent lighting the primary ambient source. Warm color temperature linear fluorescents, dimmable in some cases,...

Lighting Handbook for Utilities

Courtesy EPRI, Electric Power Research Institute Lighting uses approximately one-quarter of the nation’s electricity. In the commercial sector, it may represent 40-50% of a building’s total load. Together, commercial and industrial lighting account for a large percentage of utility daytime peak demand. Yet most existing lighting systems, designed before energy...
