Lighting Energy Savings Opportunities in Hotel Guestrooms: Results from a Scoping Study at the Redondo Beach Crown Plaza
A study was conducted by LBNL/DOE in order to better understand the lighting usage and energy consumption patterns in typical hotel guestrooms. This involved a multi-phase research, development and demonstration program. This program started with the identification and characterization of common lighting technologies in hotel guestrooms and ended in the measurement and monitoring of newly developed and existing technologies at a hotel test site. Emphasis was placed on determining where lighting energy was being used by guests and identifying the savings potentials that energy efficient technologies could present. Initial data indicates that compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and occupancy sensors offer significant energy savings potentials in hotel guestrooms.
