Three different approaches are pointed out for achieving energy conservation in lighting. These are (1) substitution of more efficient light sources and luminaires, (2) setting illumination at levels just adequate to meet actual visual requirements, and (3) optimal control over operation, scheduling, and placement of lights. A review is then made of those factors underlying present federal policy with respect to lighting, followed by a discussion of the objectives such as cost effectiveness that serve as guides when an attempt is made to formulate national energy conservation policy or choose RD&D projects to be supported by Federal funds.
