Abstract

This guide shows results from a field demonstration of sensor-controlled, bi-level corridor lighting. Occupants had positive feedback, and considerable energy savings were achieved. Monitoring results from 14 other apartment buildings enabled energy savings calculations comparing market rate vs. below market rate buildings. As energy codes move toward increased adoption of sensor-controlled lighting, these results show how to use bi-level lighting to improve energy efficiency without occupant dissatisfaction.
