The Using Advanced Lighting Controls to Drive Down Energy Costs and Improve Worker Satisfaction white paper was written by Terry Mocherniak, Chief Operating Officer, Encelium Technologies and contributed by Gary Meshberg, LEED AP, LC, Director of Sales, Encelium Technologies and President, Lighting Control Association.

Mr. Mocherniak is COO and co-founder of Encelium Technologies, a leading lighting control and energy management system manufacturer. He has over 16 years’ experience in the advanced lighting technology sector and has been involved in 3 technology start-up companies. Prior to founding Encelium, Mr. Mocherniak was Managing Partner of Value Added Ventures Corporation, a Toronto based venture capital fund and was also CEO and co-founder of Lumion Corporation, an electronic ballast and lighting control system manufacturer.

Mr. Meshberg is a lighting controls industry veteran with more than 25 years of experience. Meshberg is founder and a past chairperson of the Home Lighting Control Alliance and education chairperson for the North Texas Section of the IESNA. He has also been actively involved in the National Council on Qualifications for Lighting Professionals, Consumer Electronics Association and TecHome.

The white paper explores advanced lighting control as an energy efficiency measure which drives down energy costs and improves worker satisfaction. Advanced lighting control has become a popular lighting option in new construction and as a retrofit upgrade for existing buildings, providing a platform for integrating sophisticated energy management strategies such as smart time scheduling, occupancy sensing, demand response/load shedding, personal lighting control, daylighting control and task tuning. Beyond energy code compliance, it can generate energy savings of 50-75% while increasing worker job and environmental satisfaction, enabling participation in demand response or peak shaving programs, and help realizing sustainability goals.

Encelium’s Energy Control System™ (ECS), the most advanced lighting control solution on the market. ECS reduces lighting energy consumption as well as energy costs at a faster rate than other environmental measures and has an average payback on investment of two to five years. Since the company’s founding in 2001, ECS has been installed in more than 30 million square feet of commercial space across North America and Europe. The company has experienced tremendous growth, posting a 200 percent annual increase during the last two years.

ECS seamlessly integrates and simultaneously deploys six user-friendly energy-management strategies facility-wide. These include personal controls, task tuning, daylight harvesting, smart time scheduling, occupancy sensing and load shedding. As the most advanced lighting control solution for commercial buildings, ECS typically meets or exceeds today’s sustainable requirements for new or existing office buildings. Designed to reduce lighting-related energy costs by 50 to 75 percent, the system also contributes between 12 to 18 points, depending on the application, toward achieving the coveted U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED).
