New NEMA Framework Predicts Energy Savings from Lighting Systems

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) recently published NEMA LSD 79-2018 Predicted Energy Savings from Lighting Systems, a new 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 very clear, a method is necessary to determine the long-term average savings that can be captured based on the specific efficiency measures selected by a building owner,” sats 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 at no cost on the NEMA website.
