The Lighting Energy Alliance (LEA) at Rensselaer’s Lighting Research Center (LRC) is a collaboration of members whose common goal is to conduct research to increase the benefits of lighting while reducing its environmental and monetary costs. Now that much of the early conservation measures have been implemented, LEA will work to identify effective new ways to save energy, quantify the savings, and support its members in implementation. LEA invites utilities, efficiency agencies, and ESCOs to join its efforts.
