To aid participants with their high efficiency interior lighting solutions, the ILC provides a listing of search tools, reports, fact sheets, and case studies. Search tools will assist in selecting the right products to fit participants' needs, and the reports, fact sheets, and case studies serve as examples for participants to follow.
Technical assistance from the U.S. Department of Energy, including how to apply the ILC resources such as the Better Buildings Alliance troffer specification, will be provided to campaign participants who request it when they join the campaign. Technical assistance may include help with:
- identifying appropriate sites for a high efficiency troffer installation or upgrade,
- filling out the Join and Recognition submission forms, and
- guidance with properly applying specification guidelines.
- Better Buildings Alliance Model Technical Specification: High-Efficiency Troffers. January 2017
- Controls-Enabled LED Retrofit Kit Performance Specification Verstion 0.12 (draft for comment). January 2017
- ILC Lighting Incentives Database — A list of incentives, organized by state and utility or energy efficiency organization, specific to troffer, high-bay, low-bay, and suspended linear lighting and associated controls.
- Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) — A list of incentives organized by state. Start by selecting your state and searching for lighting incentives.
- Lighting Project Evaluator — An online tool that allows you to compare your proposed lighting system to a building energy code or the existing system, as you specify it. This tool provides the Excel file that is required to submit your project for recognition through the Interior Lighting Campaign. Download the Information Checklist and How-To Guide to get started.
Product Search Tools
- The DesignLights Consortium's Solid-State Lighting Qualified Products List — This qualified product list, maintained by the DesignLights Consortium (DLC), is a searchable database of light-emitting diode (LED) products including luminaires, retrofit kits, and linear replacement lamps.
- The DesignLights Consortium's Networked Lighting Controls Qualified Products List — This qualified product list, provides a new resource to the lighting market and energy efficiency programs to understand, evaluate, and compare Networked Lighting Control Systems. The QPL also identifies systems eligible for new financial incentives and rebates from utilities and energy efficiency programs across North America.
- LED Lighting Facts — The LED Lighting Facts Program offers a robust search tool for LED products. Users can select product type, category, use, base, subcategory, and size. Further filters such as colorimetric, photometric, and power quality filters may be applied.
