issues addressed the Advanced Lighting Luminaires
and Systems Element include the following:
Hotel bathroom lights are often left on all night and
are the largest lighting energy use in the hotel room.
Many hotel/institutional bathroom lighting systems are
inefficient and the rooms have no night-lights. Currently
there are no systems to address this issue cost effectively
that save energy, improve safety and lower overall operating
There are few, if any, integrated energy efficient high-end
residential lamps available in California. The manufacturers
and "Showroom" companies need technical guidance and
support to create these high efficiency products.
The typical California new or remodeled kitchen has
six to eight incandescent downlights, which are very
inefficient. Cost effective high efficiency CFL Downlight
packages do not exist in the marketplace for retrofit
or remodeling application.
Portable task/ambient lighting luminaires with occupancy
and other controls for office, home office, and commercial
applications are currently not available.
Integrated lighting systems designed for glare free
lighting, occupancy, dimming and daylighting controls
from one manufacturer with one overall warranty are
not available in the California or US marketplace. An
integrated system like this could reduce costs and increase
lighting quality and would be ideal for California classrooms
and many other applications.
