DOE Releases Commercial Lighting Solutions Web Tool for Commercial Buildings
May 5, 2009
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has introduced Commercial Lighting Solutions, designed to improve energy efficiency in commercial buildings. The interactive Web tool will help commercial building owners improve lighting efficiency by at least 30% over ASHRAE 90.1-2004. Commercial Lighting Solutions was introduced at LIGHTFAIR International, the world's largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference.
Developed by DOE in partnership with lighting designers, architects, and commercial end-users, the tool provides energy savings projections based on user input and selections. The solutions are designed to meet or exceed energy savings levels needed to qualify for tax incentives established by the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
