Non-Residential Lighting Best Practices Report

The Non-Residential Lighting Best Practices Report (Volume NR1) volume presents results of a comparative analysis of six non-residential lighting programs, each of which offered turnkey installations or traditional rebate opportunities to non-residential customers. Although several of these programs offered a range of measures (e.g., refrigeration and HVAC), lighting measures (mostly T8, delamping and CFLs) account for the bulk of energy savings attributed to NR1 programs. Therefore, these programs are referred to as lighting rather than comprehensive programs for the purposes of this study. Three key crosscutting themes that affect multiple program components were identified: a programís target market fundamentally shaped program design, incentive level and marketing approach; contractor relationships were critical to these programs; and standardized incentives and discrete measure lists offered great potential for automated processes.
