This Journal of Healthcare Engineering article describes the Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities.
This guide was sponsored by the California Energy Commission and developed by the California Lighting Technology Center at UC Davis. It is intended to be used as a supplement for the 2008 Residential Compliance Manual. It is a resource to help contractors, designers, and builders understand the 2008 Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards and how to integrate these changes into new home plans. This guide consists of two key sections: the Technology Overview and the Lighting Design Guide.
Adaptive exterior lighting is a relatively new concept recognized by the lighting industry and energy regulators as a potential method to increase energy savings in outdoor applications. Many adaptive exterior lighting products are being developed and have been introduced into the marketplace, allowing users to implement dynamic lighting designs that offer 30%–75% energy savings over traditional systems. These savings are achieved by coupling advanced lighting controls with an efficacious, dimmable source.
