The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published NEMA LSD 79-2018, “Predicted Energy Savings from Lighting Systems,” a white paper that includes a framework used to gauge the effectiveness of different lighting control methods.
“While the potential to save energy short term is clear, a method is necessary to determine the average savings that can be captured based on the specific efficiency measures selected by a building owner,” says Dr. Robert Nachtrieb, lead scientist, Lutron Electronics Co., and chair of the LSD 79 ad hoc committee. “This paper describes the complexity of this determination and suggests a potential path forward.”
NEMA LSD 79-2018 is available as an electronic download on the NEMA website.
