The interaction of building lighting and HVAC systems and the effects on cooling load and lighting system performance are being evaluated using a full-scale test facility at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The aim of this research effort is to determine energy transfer from lighting systems to building spaces and to evaluate the performance of lighting and HVAC equipment as influenced by typical operating conditions and equipment configurations. The ultimate objective of this research is to develop procedures to promote the design of efficient lighting and HVAC systems, leading to energy and cost savings. The test facility and measurement methodology are described, along with sample test data, results, and conclusions.
