The guide describes various control strategies that can be applied to classrooms to minimize operating costs, enact energy-code compliance and support high-performance school design

A new application guide from the Lighting Controls Association entails various control strategies that facility managers can apply to classrooms to minimize operating costs, enact energy-code compliance and support high-performance school design.

The guide is designed to address commercial building energy codes, which contain detailed mandatory lighting control requirements related to buildings such as K-12 schools.

Key Strategies

Manual control: Manual controls enable users to turn ON/OFF or reduce their lighting in response to visual needs. Incorporating flexibility provides a selection of light levels and can increase satisfaction while producing energy cost savings. The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) estimates average lighting energy savings of 31-36%.

Occupancy sensing: Occupancy sensing controls turn lighting OFF or reduce it in response to whether the space is occupied. LBNL estimates average lighting energy savings of 24%.

Daylight-responsive control: Daylight harvesting controls turn lighting OFF or reduce it based on the contribution of daylight to task lighting needs. LBNL estimates average lighting
energy savings of 28%.
