Integrating LLLC Technology with Building Systems

Published by EC&M: Luminaire level lighting controls (LLLC) technology enables greater control over a building’s lighting system, all the way down to the individual fixture level, resulting in optimized lighting for the space. One of the most promising features of the technology is that the fixture-level sensors and connectivity LLLC allow for integration with other building systems to achieve even greater energy cost savings. A recently completed research project led by NBI, Leading in Los Angeles, sought to develop, test, and pilot a building retrofit package aimed at reducing total building annual energy consumption by 20% or more. The innovative package combines LEDs, advanced lighting controls, automated interior shades, and minor retro-commissioning of the heating, air-conditioning, and ventilation system that all work together to create an energy-efficient and comfortable space utilizing the LLLC system.
