Better Buildings Alliance Launches Indoor Lighting Campaign for Commercial Buildings

DOE Energy ManageThe Department of Energy launched a campaign to increase the use of high efficiency lighting in commercial buildings. Through the Better Buildings Alliance, DOE is working with key stakeholders and end users in both the public and private sectors to install more energy efficient lighting.

Currently, interior lighting accounts for 20 percent of US commercial building energy use. More energy efficient troffer lighting offers savings of 25 percent (57 kWh) or $6 over a typical T8 troffer used today, says DOE. The Better Building Alliance’s Interior Lighting Campaign (ILC) will support building owners to upgrade current fluorescent lights. The goal for the first year is for partners to install 100,000 high efficiency troffers and share their success and learning with others. Upgrading 100,000 fixtures can reduce energy use by 5 million kWh and save $500,000 in electricity bills annually, says DOE.
