High Efficiency Parking Lighting for Federal Agencies: The Time Is Now to Join LEEP and Get the Resources You Need

Live Training

Mar 25, 2014
1 p.m. Eastern Time
1 hour

State-of-the-art lighting technology can provide rapid return on investments by reducing energy use 20% to 70%, compared to typical practice. Some have also realized significant reductions in lighting maintenance costs, in part because of the longevity of the new technologies. The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) encourages Federal agencies to take advantage of these energy saving lighting systems, and to highlight their commitment and successes by joining the Lighting Energy in Parking (LEEP) Campaign. The LEEP Campaign is a recognition and guidance program offering free resources including a lighting project evaluation calculator, case studies, utility incentives databases, lighting specifications, free technical assistance, and possible awards to facility owners and managers interested in implementing energy efficient lighting solutions in their parking facilities. Federal facility managers have an added incentive to join, since federal sites must comply with a variety of federal acquisition regulations for energy efficiency, and LEEP resources make compliance easier. Join the webinar to learn about the resources and recognition available by joining the LEEP Campaign. The presentation will 1) provide Federal requirements for exterior lighting (FEMP Designated levels), 2) provide an overview of the LEEP Campaign resources for federal users and how to join the campaign, and 3) demonstrate how LED Lighting Facts for Federal Users can be used to identify LED exterior lighting products that meet FEMP designated levels and other performance parameters. The webinar will include a 40 minute presentation and a 20 minute live question and answer session with attendees.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this seminar, learners will be able to:

  • Understand the legislative requirements (FEMP Designation) for energy efficiency for 6 categories of exterior lighting.
  • Learn about resources available from the LEEP Campaign and how to join
  • Learn how to use the LED Lighting Facts for Federal Users online tool to identify LED exterior lighting products that meet FEMP designated levels and other performance parameters.

    Learn how to utilize life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) to improve Federal economic-based decision making, determine the total cost of ownership of project alternatives, and make informed decisions on energy and water efficiency investments. In addition, participants will apply key requirements and supplemental economic measures to federal investment decisions such as those for individual and interdependent building system acquisitions for new construction and major renovations. A video tutorial will demonstrate how the latest version of the Building Life Cycle Costing (BLCC) software can turn readily available inputs into sound investment decisions.
