This practical guide has been designed to provide highly useful information on lighting technologies, components and devices that are commercially available. The content of the guide can be used to review lighting systems design and allows for identifying and capitalizing on energy efficiency opportunities through a design approach. This revised version includes information on several new developments that occurred in the lighting industry since the guide was first published in 2007.

Although standards and regulations presented in this guide apply mainly to the Canadian market, the technical content is of general relevance to utilities, companies and customers interested in identifying and tapping into energy-saving opportunities.

It is strongly recommended that individuals or companies undertaking comprehensive energy efficiency projects secure the services of professional energy efficiency specialists qualified in lighting design to maximize the benefits and return on investment by considering the internal rate of return and related benefits of a ‘quality’ design.
