 Implementation Manual

April 2014 Implementation Manual

The April 2014 Implementation Manual will provide new opportunities to help support utilities achieving cost effective energy savings. With the most recent version of the Lighting Calculator, version 3.2, BPA has added several new measures for LED products

 The T8 Lighting Project

Converting commercial and industrial spaces to energy efficient lighting remains one of the most cost effective areas in conservation. Incentives for high performance linear fluorescent will continue to be offered to promote cost saving energy efficiency. The BPA Program Marketing team developed a suite of marketing tools to help utilities reach commercial end users - The T8 Lighting Project.

 Lighting Resources

 Energy Efficient Lighting Research

Solid State Lighting (SSL)
Solid State Lighting, also known as LED Lighting, is improving rapidly in terms of performance, cost and energy savings. BPA's SSL research includes case studies at more than a dozen sites in the Pacific Northwest, guidelines for LED retrofits of fluorescent ceiling troffers, and a test facility for outdoor lighting.

Advanced Lighting Controls (ALC)
Lighting controls can save energy by dimming or turning off lights when the lights are not needed. "Advanced" lighting controls use wired or wireless networks to combine multiple control functions such as occupancy sensing, high end tuning, daylight harvesting, etc. ALC can help save 50% to 80% of the energy for lighting a commercial or industrial space. BPA's ALC research includes an integrated sensor that won a 2013 R&D 100 Award, and free open source software to model daylighting accurately and easily
