New GSA Research Sheds Light on Efficient Daylighting and Lighting Strategies
Lighting accounts for over 20% of the energy used by commercial buildings. Research out of the General Services Administration (GSA) Office of Federal High Performance Green Buildings demonstrates how to save energy through integrated lighting and daylighting strategies. The research, conducted by GSA and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) at the Fort Carson Army Base near Colorado Springs, CO, evaluated opportunities for Fort Carson buildings to provide superior lighting with minimal energy use. Learn strategies - including the "layers of light" approach - to save energy through strategic use of daylighting and lighting.
