PIER Lighting Research Program (PIER LRP)
Lighting R&D/ Codes Scoping Study

Final Report on PIER LRP Code Connections

The Codes and Standards Connections Final Report is the result of a two year effort that identified existing codes and standards for lighting energy efficiency around the country with a focus on California state codes, linkages of the Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) programsí Lighting Research Program (LRP) products to existing codes and standards, opportunities to improve codes and standards through future PIER research and opportunities to further understanding of lighting fundamentals through PIER research.

The report identifies successes of the PIER LRP in the development of devices for the purpose of short-term energy efficiency improvements, but also identifies the minimal codes and standards connections of the LRP products due to the nature of the technologies used, features included in the products, and the developmental stage of the LRP products.

It provides recommendations for future PIER lighting energy efficiency programs to include greater coordination of codes and standards development needs, utility emerging technologies programs and fundamental lighting research.
