Survey Finds 81% of Building, Lighting Professionals Focus on Energy Efficiency

Eighty-one percent of building and lighting professionals are now focused on energy efficiency, according to the inaugural Osram Sylvania Commercial Lighting Survey (PDF).

Based on responses from more than 350 facilities decision-makers and lighting designers across the education, healthcare, hospitality, office and retail sectors, the survey also indicates that LEDs are playing a big role in commercial spaces with nearly 75 percent of respondents saying they are currently using or plan to use LEDs due to their energy efficiency, low maintenance and reduced operating costs.

A key finding shows that energy efficiency, operating costs and maintenance are top considerations when making lighting decisions, according to 84 percent of respondents.

The report also indicates that nearly three quarters (71 percent) of facilities and lighting professionals have evaluated their commercial lighting in the past year.

Other findings reveal that 84 percent of respondents cite operating costs and maintenance as an important factor and 76 percent of lighting professionals believe it is more important to have lighting that saves money over its lifetime, even if it costs more to purchase and install.

  1. Several studies have also concluded that LED Lamps do not burn efficiently due to stored heat in the fixture, the enemy to LED lamp life. LED needs breathing room, hence why they perform well in traffic signals and parking lot apps. Cost is still pretty high for this solution.
    There are low energy fluoroescent solutions to include a retrofit design that burns a 28 watt lamp at 18 watts…due to uniquely designed built in ballast. Sustainable to as the fixture and ballast remain in place, and install is under 10 minutes.
    Life expectancy is 50k hours on bulb alone. Cost competitive with new fixtures. There are some solid lighting solutions available…that include using sensors to turn the light off…priceless.
