A free renovation checklist and guide covering all aspects of lighting renovation and upgrades is available from the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA).
 
The Opportunities for Federal Building Retrofits lighting checklist is a detailed 18-page guide covering topics from personal light control to occupancy sensing to load shedding.  The checklist gives specific lighting renovation information for many structures: office buildings, industrial plants, warehouses, retail, and residential.  Originally designed for the Government Services Administration, it also covers aircraft hangars and housing. Users are directed to information on energy-saving lighting products including lamps, luminaires, ballasts, and controls.
 
Lighting accounts for 30 percent or more of commercial building energy use, and new lighting products can reduce energy costs by 50 percent, according to Ron Runkles, NEMA lighting industry director.
 
The checklist can be downloaded at the enLIGHTen America website
