Throughout this study, Slipstream will provide technical assistance to integrate lighting controls with the building automation system (BAS). Once connected, the BAS uses the signals from the lighting's occupancy sensors to optimize HVAC with measures to reduce energy use in real-time.
This study will quantify the benefits of integrated controls, measure the energy impacts, assess barriers to implementation, evaluate the user experience, and develop recommendations for Focus on Energy programs.
For more on the technology used in this study, see Slipstream's guide to integrating lighting and HVAC controls.
A successful integrated control strategy will help building operators achieve greater energy savings, improve occupant comfort, reduce energy costs, and operate more efficiently. Qualifying facilities may also receive enhanced incentives and other benefits to offset project costs.
In addition, facilities must either:
