June 12, 2013 – Precision-Paragon has released the results of its 2012 Energy-Efficient Lighting Industry survey, which shows 77% of respondents expecting their energy-efficient lighting revenue to grow in 2013.
The survey established that automated lighting controls are being specified in nearly half of all retrofits. On average, 48% of surveyors’ energy-efficient lighting retrofits use automated lighting controls, which respond to occupancy conditions and light levels.
In energy-efficient lighting technology, the survey predicts that fluorescent lighting will continue to be the predominant technology this year.
“Our survey results back up what most people in the industry already know,” said Precision’s vice-president and general manager, Joe Martin. “Whether you’re looking at the available technology or the opportunity for energy savings, this is a great time for the industry, and for end users who benefit from the savings.”
