The purpose of this specification is to define the desired performance characteristics of retrofit kits designed to convert existing systems used in troffer, linear ambient, low bay, and high bay applications to light-emitting diode (LED) technology. By adopting this specification for retrofit kits, building owners can save more than 50% of the energy on a one-for-one basis and up to 80% with controls.This specification is being developed in collaboration with building owners and operators, technical experts, manufacturers and other stakeholders. Retrofit kits installed in target luminaires that meet this specification are expected to deliver energy savings, reliable performance, and energy cost savings. We would like your feedback (general comments or specific technical suggestions).
