AbstractThis field study in a deep-plan office building assessed energy savings from the use of luminaires using integral occupancy sensors, light sensors (daylight harvesting), and individual dimming control adjusted by office occupants via their computer screens. Data were collected from 86 workstations over a year to examine the energy savings and power reduction attributable to the controls, and how the controls were used. Occupants were encouraged to use the individual lighting control feature by means of e-mail reminders. Energy savings and peak power reductions were determined by comparison to a conventional fluorescent lighting system installed on a neighbouring floor.
