Advanced Lighting Controls for Demand Side Management (Demand Response Assessment)Project Number PGE 0826 Organization PG&E End-use Other Sector Commercial, Public, Industrial Project Year(s) 2008 - 2009
This report summarizes the functional performance and demand response (DR) potential of three advanced lighting control technologies that were assessed in office environments in Northern California. The technologies assessed included the Adura LightPoint System, Universal Demand Control Lighting (DCL) System and DEMANDFlex ballast, and the Echoflex Solutions system.
The assesment approach was two-fold, including functional testing of the system (i.e. did the control technology work as intended) and quantification of load shedding resulting from use of the controls. The control strategies were also evaulated for ease of installation, reliability, and customer acceptance. Additional technology performance criteria, including system costs, are presented in the report. For more information, please contact the sponsoring organization.
