Interior Lighting Campaign Saves Awardees More than $13.2 Million
DOE recognized 13 partner organizations for their exemplary performance in energy-efficiency interior lighting practices. Together they achieved significant savings by upgrading almost 600,000 troffer lighting systems to high-efficiency systems.

BTO’s Commercial Building Integration program’s research, development, and evaluation helps advance a range of innovative building technologies and solutions, paving the way for high performing buildings that could use 50-70% less energy than typical buildings. Through competitive solicitations, such as Cooperative Agreements, CBI works with industry, small businesses, academia, the national labs and other entities to advance energy efficiency solutions and technologies for commercial buildings. From research projects to tax incentives information, to analysis tools and workforce development, CBI works across multiple disciplines to help U.S. businesses save energy, time and money. To learn more about the CBI program, see the program’s full activity list. Additionally, learn more about how you and your organization can Take Action to Save Energy.
