Lighting Energy Management for Colleges and Universities.
National Lighting Bureau, Washington, DC.
Colleges and universities probably rely on more types of lighting than do other facilities. This booklet is intended to help administrators achieve the goal of lighting energy management--gaining maximum benefit from illumination systems while minimizing energy waste. The development of a lighting energy management plan requires knowledge of the components and systems available, of the existing systems, and of the benefits of lighting. Major lighting concerns and terms are explained and a glossary is provided. The benefits discussed include improved safety and security, increased worker productivity, reduced lighting maintenance expense, and better student achievement. Directions and a form are provided for conducting a lighting energy audit. The final section discusses lighting energy management options (LEMOs) in the areas of lamps, fixtures, ballasts, controls, and maintenance. A hypothetical situation is presented to illustrate a basic method for computing the values of various LEMOs prior to their application. Throughout the booklet a total of nine case histories illustrate various applications of the lighting energy management plan and the associated financial savings. Publications and organizations are listed as sources of assistance. (Author/MLF)
