Office of the Future: Integrating DR and EE in Commercial Office Space Lighting
This project focuses on demand response potential of lighting in a commercial office space. The lighting design goal was not only to provide energy efficient and demand responsive solutions but also to improve significantly the lighting quality and the overall look and feel of the space. To accomplish this goal a combination of modern fixtures with reflector technology that maximized light output, and daylight sensors, occupancy/vacancy sensors, energy efficient lamps, and dimming ballasts were used creating a fully integrated and highly controllable lighting system. The project site consists of a small office area occupied by the owner, Brookfield Properties, in the Landmark Square Building in Long Beach, California.
