Maximize Energy Savings

Lutron can help save in electricity and HVAC. Government facilities must achieve a 30% total energy reduction from the 2003 baseline, according to Executive Order 13523. You can reduce up to 60%1 of your building lighting electricity usage, which translates to a 23%2 overall electricity reduction with Lutron solutions alone.


Annual electricity usage in commercial buildings

Government facilities must achieve a 30% energy reduction from 2003 baseline according to Executive Order 13423. You can achieve up to an overall 23%3 energy reduction with Lutron solutions alone.




1Lighting accounts for 39% of building electricity usage (Energy Information Administration, 2003, Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey, released September 2008). Lighting energy savings exceeding 60% is frequently reported by customers using Lutron solutions as part of an overall energy-savings design program.

2 Savings is based on 60% reduction in lighting energy and 14% reduction in HVAC energy use. Lighting and HVAC account for 25% and 51% of building energy use respectively (Source: Energy Information Administration. 2008. 2003 Commercial building energy consumption survey.). Contact Lutron at energy@lutron.com for more information.

3Savings is based on reduction in HVAC energy from a reduced lighting load, from shades, and from HVAC integration. A 60% lighting reduction contributed to a 14% savings in HVAC electricity consumption (Sources: (a) Illuminating Engineering Society of North America. 2003. Advanced Lighting Guidelines.; (b) Energy Information Administration. 2008. 2003 Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey.). Shades contributed to a 5% reduction in HVAC electricity (Source: Lutron commissioned study by Herrick Laboratory, Purdue University.). HVAC integration contributed to a 10% reduction in HVAC electricity (Source: EnergyPlus energy modeling simulations.). Contact Lutron at energy@lutron.com for more information.
