250,000 pilot followed by 1.2M square foot rollout
In early 2013, JDSU embarked on the implementation of a lighting control and smart building optimization platform across its global real estate footprint. The goals for this initiative were to reduce energy costs by 20% and to shrink the company carbon footprint by 15%.
The initiative included the combined energy efficiency of LED fixtures with the Enlighted people-responsive lighting control system to achieve satisfactory levels of people comfort, continued work productivity, and a minimum of a three-year payback on operating expenses.
The combination of LED fixtures with Enlighted controls resulted in an 80% opex reduction.
