Below are links to tools that assist users with project planning and analysis.
This tool provides a specification template for calibration of energy-measuring equipment; an example is also provided to illustrate how it might be tailored to match the range of expected use for a given instrument.
This tool provides a specification template that can be used when requesting calibration services for environmental sensors, as well as an example implementation of the template specification reflecting the planned usage of the device to be calibrated.
The Sky Glow Comparison Tool is a simplified method for comparing lighting products’ contributions to sky glow that allows the user to vary the traditional output characteristics (e.g., spectral content, output level, percent uplight) of each product being compared.
Spectrally Enhanced Lighting (SEL) is a cost-effective, low-risk design method for achieving significant energy savings by shifting lamp color from the warmer to the cooler (whiter) end of the color spectrum, more closely matching daylight.
The Retrofit Financial Analysis Tool provides municipalities, utilities, and other organizations a method of analyzing the cost and return-on-investment from lighting efficiency projects.
The Model Specification for Networked Outdoor Lighting Control Systems helps cities, utilities, and other local agencies accelerate their adoption of systems that can further reduce the energy and maintenance costs of operating their streetlights.
The Model Specification for LED Roadway Luminaires enables cities, utilities, and other local agencies to assemble effective bid documents for LED street lighting products.
