PNNL Presents Findings From Lighting Energy Efficiency Codes & Standards Work at the International Association of Lighting Management Companies

October 2014
Senior Research Engineer, Eric Richman completed an invited presentation at the NALMCO (International Association of Lighting Management Companies) Annual convention where he presented the work that PNNL and the Department of Energy is doing in the areas of Lighting Energy Efficiency Codes and Standards and Market Based Technology Advancement of Energy Efficient Lighting. In addition, the presentation provided the audience with the latest information on the current strengths and weaknesses of energy efficient lighting and how organizations like NALMCO and its members it can play a part in code compliance. Lighting Energy efficiency is especially impactful since over 12% of all the energy used in the U.S. is used for lighting purposes. DOE's energy efficient lighting work led by PNNL is focused on working with industry to encourage the development of products that produce the same amount of light while consuming 25% less energy. It is estimated that PNNL developed lighting standards have the potential to save U.S. households nearly $6 billion dollars in 2015 alone.
