Networked Lighting Controls V4.0 Requirements

Networked Lighting Controls V4.0 Requirements

Networked lighting controls can save 35% or more of lighting energy used in commercial buildings while providing a host of additional capabilities and benefits, yet adoption of the technology remains limited. Barriers such as technology complexity, high cost, and lack of standardization and interoperability have prevented the technology from achieving its full potential. Education, common standards, and system selection guidance, are needed to address these barriers and achieve widespread adoption.

The DLC’s Networked Lighting Controls Technical Requirement and associated QPL provide an essential resource to efficiency program administrators, designers, specifiers, distributors, contractors, and end users to identify, compare, and select rebate-eligible, high-performing control systems for use on projects. To keep pace with quickly evolving technology and standards, the DLC revises its requirements for Networked Lighting Controls annually in June.Final policy goes into effect
