The Lighting Project Evaluator provides actionable "how to" guidance on ways to improve your building interior lighting efficiency and reduce your energy consumption, without compromising quality design criteria. Strategies include the use of high performance commercially available products, daylighting, and lighting controls, all within the context of integrated designs supported by performance specifications.

The UAC Cost Estimator provides an alternative to complicated building simulation models, while offering more detail than simplified estimating tools that are commonly available. The estimator accounts for local climate and partial-load, as well as full-load efficiencies. It also helps building owners and operators as they purchase or replace packaged rooftop air conditioning equipment by estimating a product's lifetime energy cost savings at various efficiency levels.
A set of specifications for continuous performance monitoring systems that can be easily adapted and routinely used by a variety of organizations for both new construction and control system retrofits
To maximize the benefits of converting to light-emitting diode (LED) technology from the traditional high-intensity discharge (HID) technology used in most parking lot lighting, CBEA members developed a performance specificationPDF that should be applied to a specific site, rather than a specific product.
To maximize the benefits of converting traditional high-intensity discharge (HID) technology to high-efficiency alternative technologies, including LED, induction, and fluorescence, a CBEA Project Team developed parking structure lighting performance specifications that should be applied to specific sites rather than specific products.
Light-emitting diode (LED) technology is advancing into new categories of white light applications, including refrigerated display case lighting. This specification for high-performance LED luminaires and controls is intended to provide adequate illumination of refrigerated display cases while reducing both connected load (kW) and ongoing energy consumption (kWh).
A CBEA Project Team working to support the market introduction of high-efficiency troffers developed a specification that allowed for high-efficiency LED and fluorescent technologies, and addressed the 2'x2' category of troffer products. Version 3.0 of the Specification was released, expanding the specification to address 1'x4' and 2'x4' product configurations. Potential savings from applying the specification range from 15-45% on a one-for-one basis and up to 75% with the use of controls.
This guide explains the benefits and process of building commissioning thereby providing owners and other stakeholders a tool to improve building efficiency and operation. It is intended to be a resource, as well as a call to action, for building owners and facility managers who want to verify their buildings are not only operating as originally intended, but also as efficiently as possible. Commissioning of new construction and major renovations is the primary focus, although commissioning of existing buildings is also briefly discussed as well.
This guide provides an overview of the different energy audit options available and information on how to select an energy auditor.
This series of fact sheets was developed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Hospital Energy Alliance. These fact sheets help hospital and healthcare institution owners and operators use effective, energy-efficient technologies and practices to decrease energy consumption and its related costs and to address energy-related environmental issues. Each fact sheet covers a particular area of potential savings in healthcare facilities and includes one or more hospital case studies: Building Envelope Fact Sheet, Boilers Fact Sheet, Chillers Fact Sheet, CHP Fact Sheet, Existing Building Commissioning Fact Sheet, Energy Management Program Fact Sheet, Fast Paybacks Fact Sheet, Ground Source Heat Pumps Fact Sheet, HVAC Fact Sheet, Integrated Building Design Fact Sheet, Lighting Fact Sheet, Plug Loads Fact Sheet, Water Efficiency Fact Sheet.
