Facilities Cut Parking Energy Use by 60%
As part of its ongoing effort to
reduce building energy use,
the Better Buildings Alliance’s
Lighting Energy Efficiency in Parking
(LEEP) campaign has recognized 18 or-
ganizations for exceptional performance
in improving lighting efficiency in park-
ing garages by an average of 60%.
Together, the 2014 and 2015 LEEP
award winners save almost 30 million
k Wh and $3 million per year through the
use of efficient technologies for lighting
and controls, with over 140 organizations
participating in the campaign to install
While many of the recognized organizations made the leap to LED light
fixtures, others opted to replace high-pressure sodium fixtures with high-efficiency metal halide or fluorescent bulbs,
as well as implementing wireless lighting
controls to cut energy waste.
Occupancy and ambient light level sensors were
popular efficiency improvements among participants,
along with applications
that allow FMs to manage
parking lighting from mobile
devices such as smartphones
Some of the award
winners also developed
customized lighting control
schemes with additional
illumination that allowed occupants to feel safer walking
to and from their vehicles.
“It might only take one person to
change a light bulb, but it took dedicated
efforts by the many thoughtful leaders of
LEEP award winners to demonstrate how
much can be gained through advanced,
parking lots and garages,” says David
Danielson, Assistant Secretary for Energy
Efficiency and Renewable Energy. “These
innovative solutions also enhance safety
and improve working conditions for cus-
tomers, tenants, and employees.”
LIGHTING IMPROVEMEN TS saved nearly 30 million k Wh and $3
million per year for 18 award-winning parking facility owners.
