Module 2 focuses on light sources that must be certified to the Energy Commission as compliant with JA8 to be classified as high efficacy. This is followed by information on relevant lighting related to high efficacy lighting, as well as, specific performance requirements for high efficacy light sources.and light source testing.
California’s new residential Building Energy Efficiency Standards took effect on January 1, 2017. New regulations in the 2016 Energy Standards require that lighting in new homes be high efficacy, while also expanding the types of lighting that qualify as high efficacy. This change eliminates most space by space requirements and ensures that a variety of lighting technologies and techniques are available to builders and contractors. This video series provides an overview of the requirements for high-efficacy lighting in the 2016 Energy Standards. A downloadable fact sheet covering the same topics are available here: http://cltc.ucdavis.edu/sites/default/files/files/publication/High%20Efficacy%20Lighting.pdf
The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) at the University of California Davis collaborated with the California Energy Commission to provide this educational video in support of the 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24).
