Overview: Saving energy from high-efficiency parking lot and parking structure lighting technology is a proven opportunity for commercial buildings to cut operating costs. Case studies have shown that implementing this strategy can save up to 70 percent on energy costs and 90 percent on maintenance costs. The Lighting Energy Efficiency in Parking (LEEP) Campaign is a collaboration to help businesses take advantage of this savings opportunity. The campaign is led by the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), Green Parking Council (GPC), and the International Facility Management Association (IFMA). The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) supports LEEP by providing implementation resources, including specification documents and technical assistance, to LEEP campaign participants via DOE's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

This webinar is an introduction to the LEEP campaign and a review of strategies that businesses have used to implement high-efficiency lighting technologies in parking applications. LEEP campaign organizers will discuss the campaign, how to get involved, resources available to participants, and recognition for organizations that achieve the highest energy savings. This webinar will also feature two case study examples of businesses that have implemented high-efficiency parking lighting projects. Speakers will discuss their projects in detail, including energy and financial results and strategies for overcoming barriers to implement this technology.
Target Audience: Those interested in high-efficiency parking lighting technologies, specifically commercial sector owners, operators, or managers of buildings with parking lots or parking structures.
