1 RTF Lighting Standard Protocol Review of Hours of Operations, Controls Savings, and Variation

2 Hours Context: SR relies on interview used for hours with default as backup. How do our proposed defaults look? Review measured hours versus default Caveats – All logged data by some method from studies meant to ascertain hours – Unknown protocols for annualization – Unknown site sampling procedures & duration – Know little about building/occupant charateristics – Litlle know about sample selection It would take substantial time mine for those unknowns

19 Some Conclusions Significant range for hours within some building use types highlights the importance of the interview part of SRM Use of default carries more uncertainty in some use types than others Default hours for some building use types should be revised Test of simplest reliable needs to include how often default is used What is correlation between logged hours and reported business hours?

20 Hours of Operations Conclusion Hours of Operations varies across building types and within building types. It depends on the building, occupants, type of work, and location within the building (e.g.: office vs. break room vs. computer room vs…..) Because of large variation within building types it will be difficult to use defaults and estimate accurate operating hours Even within the same utility, different programs report different operating hours for the same building type. A regional primary study would most likely return the same uncertainty and not be worth the $$.

21 Control savings as a % Issues: – Most analysis, case studies focus on full lighting retrofits not just control upgrades – There are large variations in control only reported data – Type of lights, control settings, and operating hours all effect results – Location of controls effects performance 3 studies are presented to show the variability

22 LBNL Meta-Analysis from Lighting Controls Focus on commercial buildings by building type 240 savings estimates from 88 papers and case studies Control types evaluated = Occupancy, Day lighting, Personal tuning, Institutional Tuning, and multiple types Report website: %20Controls%20in%20Commercial%20Buildings_ LBNL-5095-E.pdf

23 LBNL Meta-Analysis Conclusions Table 7 page 15 These are the data points used in the calculator These points are the average of all studies analyzed These numbers include studies that are calculations and actual installation

24 LBNL Meta-Analysis Conclusions Large Standard deviations indicated (+ - 20%) uncertainty and varying results Actual installations are not broken up by building type

25 Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute review of Occupancy Sensors Evaluation of Documented and undocumented studies by building location type Evaluation identifies ranges and average savings Most data evaluated reported prior to 2001

26 Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute review of Occupancy Sensors Findings

27 M & V of Day lighting Photocontrols 5 Buildings evaluated (office, school, manufacturing, medical, warehouse) Looked at the direction of Office Spaces All locations based in Idaho Report website: 11_Final_Photo%20Controls.pdf

28 M & V of Day lighting Photocontrols Findings Results from monitoring period during regular operation hours Direction of Offices has large significant impact on savings Variations in site savings provides uncertainty Numbers and savings % are different from the LBNL study

29 Controls Savings Conclusions Documented variations are large Occupancy variations, directional variations, and space type variations, add to uncertainty Small samples of installations do not accurately represent the population of installations Most calculations overestimate actual savings
