The Lighting Control Innovation Award was created in 2011 as part of the Illuminating Engineering Society’s Illumination Awards program, which recognizes professionalism, ingenuity and originality in lighting design. LCA is proud to sponsor the Lighting Control Innovation Award, which recognizes projects that exemplify the effective use of lighting controls in nonresidential applications. In this award’s first year, eight projects were recognized with an Award of Merit, with one further recognized with a Special Citation Award. This month, we will explore the role that energy-saving lighting controls play in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Research Support Facility at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, a net-zero-energy office building.

The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) recently announced that it entered into a five-year agreement with the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) to sponsor a new Control Innovation Award as part of the IES’s prestigious Illumination Awards. Twenty projects were submitted in the Award’s first year. IES intends to make a formal announcement in August. However, we are pleased to be able to announce that seven projects were recognized with an IES Illumination Award of Merit, and one of these is being recognized with a higher award. Stay tuned, as further announcements will follow later in the summer.
WattStopper’s Digital Lighting Management and technical lighting control expertise facilitated completion of Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ new iPrep Academy within tight timeframes. The fast track remodeling project challenged the design and construction teams, as the work had to be completed in just three months. When Miami-Dade County Public Schools set out to create an engaging, high tech learning environment for its new iPrep Academy, the project team selected Digital Lighting Management (DLM) controls, including dimming devices, personal controls and occupancy sensors. The controls enhance the remodeled Miami school, updated with colorful open spaces incorporating digital teaching tools, while also meeting the requirements of the ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 energy code.
For both energy conservation and economic reasons, Thomas Jefferson University and Hospital, one of the largest healthcare groups in the Philadelphia region, set the goal of reducing its lighting energy consumption by at least 30% without sacrificing illumination quality. To accomplish that – and much more, Jefferson partnered with Encelium Technologies, the manufacturer of the Energy Control System™ (ECS). Encelium customized its innovative lighting control and energy management solution for Jefferson, which has more than 4 million square feet of clinical, research, teaching and housing property.
NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL, installed a light control system from Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. The Propellants North Administrative and Maintenance Facility is using innovative light control strategies to dramatically reduce energy consumption and maximize the use of available daylight.

Electrical Contractor Magazine recently published a major story on lighting controls featuring LCA members Leviton, Lutron, OSRAM SYLVANIA and WattStopper, in addition to comments from Craig DiLouie representing the Lighting Controls Association. The article, titled “Take Control,” outlines control strategies that building owners and managers can deploy now to reduce energy costs and increase flexibility in existing building lighting systems.
As a manufacturers rep agency covering Tennessee, Arkansas, and Northern Mississippi, John Moore & Associates (JMA) had been singing the praises of DEMANDflex™ ballasts and DCL® control systems since they were first introduced to the market in 2008. And yet, the company was still using 400-watt metal halide ballasts at its 100,000 sq. ft. warehouse just outside of Nashville. Finally, in August 2010, they decided it was time to stop wasting money and start practicing what they were preaching.
