T50 D.2 Daylighting and lighting retrofit to reduce energy use in non-residential buildings: A literature review

Dubois, Marie-Claude LU ; Gentile, Niko LU ; Bisegna, Fabio; Knoop, Martine; Matusiak, Barbara; Osterhaus, Werner; Stoffer, Sophie and Tetri, Eino (2016) In A Technical Report from IEA SHC Task 50 - Advanced Lighting Solution for Retrofitting Buildings
Abstract
This report presents a literature review about energy-efficient retrofit of electric lighting and daylighting systems in buildings. The review, which covers around 160 research articles, discusses the following energy retrofit strategies: replacement of lamp, ballast or luminaire; use of task-ambient lighting design; improvement in maintenance; reduction of maintained illuminance levels; improvement in spectral quality of light sources; improvement in occupant behavior; use of control systems; and use of daylighting systems. The review indicates that existing general knowledge about lighting retrofit is currently very limited and that there is a significant lack of information concerning the actual energy performance of lighting systems...

This report presents a literature review about energy-efficient retrofit of electric lighting and daylighting systems in buildings. The review, which covers around 160 research articles, discusses the following energy retrofit strategies: replacement of lamp, ballast or luminaire; use of task-ambient lighting design; improvement in maintenance; reduction of maintained illuminance levels; improvement in spectral quality of light sources; improvement in occupant behavior; use of control systems; and use of daylighting systems. The review indicates that existing general knowledge about lighting retrofit is currently very limited and that there is a significant lack of information concerning the actual energy performance of lighting systems installed in the existing building stock. The resulting key directions for future research highlights issues for which a better understanding is required for the spread and development of lighting retrofit. (Less)
