Lighting Systems

Lighting research is aimed at improving the energy efficiency of lighting systems in buildings and homes across the nation. The goal is to reduce lighting energy consumption by 50% over twenty years by improving the efficiency of light sources, and controlling and delivering illumination so that it is available, where and when needed, and at the required intensity. Research falls into four main areas:

  • Sources and Ballasts,
  • Light Distribution Systems,
  • Controls and Communications, and
  • Human Factors.
