The Green Proving Ground program has commissioned Department of Energy National Laboratories to perform real-world measurement and verification of the following technologies in pilot installations in federally-owned buildings. Preliminary technology assessments are available below as PDFs.
Preliminary Technology Assessments
LED Lighting with Integrated Controls > This lighting technology integrates the LED lamp, driver, daylight controls, and occupancy sensors into a single fixture for easy one-for-one replacement of the existing luminaires. Auto-calibration of daylight sensors and use of a handheld remote to group fixtures promises to overcome a key hurdle to realizing lighting energy and cost savings: the effective integration and commissioning of controls. The luminaire builds on the inherently dimmable nature of LED lighting by integrating occupancy and daylighting controls directly into the fixture and its driver. Findings available in 2015.
