DOE’s Integrated Lighting Campaign Extends Recognition Application Deadline And Publishes New Case Studies

US DOE’s Integrated Lighting Campaign (ILC) is a recognition and guidance program designed to help facility owners, operators, and managers. The ILC focuses on high-efficiency lighting and control systems that are integrated with other building systems (e.g., HVAC and/or plug loads) for added efficiency and performance. The ILC also focuses on the integration of lighting with operational functions (e.g., asset tracking, wayfinding, security systems, etc.).

The ILC has extended its deadline to submit projects for its 2022 Exemplary Performance Recognition Cycle, from March 30 to now April 15, 2022. The ILC is seeking:

  • ILC Participants (organizations including building owners, operators, and managers) to submit projects that they would like to have considered for recognition.
  • ILC Supporters (utilities, energy efficiency organizations, lighting designers, and ESCOs) to submit for recognition for their efforts to support and implement the use of advanced technologies that facilitate integration in buildings.

ILC Participants (organizations including building owners, operators, and managers) are encouraged to submit projects—indoor or outdoor—that they would like to have considered for recognition. The Campaign seeks to highlight applications that have a positive impact on energy justice, diversity, equity, or inclusion. Projects that support the unique needs of under-served communities through their deployment or installation should provide relevant information in the narratives. Projects can be submitted here.

In addition, the ILC has published several new case studies featuring last year’s recognized participants. The case studies are provided as resources for facility owners and managers who are thinking of completing similar advanced lighting projects. The case studies cover advanced lighting strategies and lessons learned.
