Efficacy Increase

Efficacy Increase


V5.0 of the Technical Requirements is designed to balance the trade-offs between efficacy, quality of light related to performance and wellbeing, and cost considerations of lighting products on the QPL. Quality of light must go hand-in-hand with energy efficiency if long-term energy savings are to be realized.
 

Objective:

Increase the minimum efficacy requirements for listing on the QPL without sacrificing quality of light of listed products.
 

Desired Outcomes:

gains

Utilities are able to meet their energy efficiency goals without sacrificing the quality of the products they are incentivizing for their customers.

savings

Designers and specifiers can save energy for their customers, achieve shorter payback periods, and unlock better incentives for their projects.

good

End-users can be sure that the products in which they invest will save energy, lower utility bills, and be able to meet strict building codes.
