WASHINGTON, July 5, 2017 - Thirteen organizations have been recognized in DOE’s Better Buildings Alliance’s Interior Lighting Campaign. ILC partners upgraded 1.2 million lighting and controls systems, surpassing their goal by 200,000, for a combined savings of $18.5 million. “By investing in more efficient lighting, ILC partners demonstrate how cost-effective measures can make a big difference in a building’s energy consumption,” said Kathleen Hogan, DOE assistant secretary for energy efficiency. The collaborative program is intended to help facility owners reap savings from high-efficiency interior lighting solutions such as dimmers, timers, and occupancy sensors. Better Buildings aims to make commercial, public, industrial, and residential buildings 20 percent more energy efficient by 2027. The full story is available here.
