Preliminary Technology Assessments
LED Retrofit Kits with ALC [PDF - 247 KB] This evaluation will test five different LED-based lighting systems with integrated advanced lighting controls (ALC). The retrofit kits are designed to upgrade existing recessed fluorescent troffer lighting to LED lighting without requiring a full fixture replacement or work in the ceiling plenum. Findings available in 2018.
Networked Lighting [PDF - 213 KB] This innovative lighting system enables two-way communication between LED luminaires, sensors and back-end software to dynamically achieve both energy savings and operational improvement. Findings available in 2016.
