Lumenergi, Newark, Calif., a manufacturer of networked lighting systems, was selected by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to provide the core technology in a lighting retrofit of two California federal buildings, the Phillip Burton Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in San Francisco (21-floors, 1.4-million-square feet), and the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, at 1301 Clay Street in Oakland, Calif. (18-floors, 1.1-million-square feet).
The buildings will be outfitted with Lumenergi's advanced, energy-efficient lighting solution, utilizing the firm's new generation dimming ballasts and networked control systems. In 2009, Lumenergi was chosen to participate in GSA's pilot program on one floor of the Phillip Burton Federal Building to provide workstation-specific lighting solutions. Since installation, collected results demonstrate Lumenergi's systems significantly decreased lighting electricity usage to nearly 70 percent below the national average. Lumenergi continues to gather valuable data on energy and demand savings, occupant comfort, customer satisfaction and effective facility management. Details
