Standby Power Specifications for Lighting Systems
Lighting products are undergoing unprecedented changes in the way they operate and how they’re used. As more home appliances become “smarter’ and more interconnected, lighting products are being developed with new functions that enhance their use and operation. These added features can help achieve greater energy savings, improve surveillance, increase lighting controllability, improve building management, and possibly boost occupants’ health and productivity. But this added functionality comes with an increased energy cost, primarily related to standby power.
This research report explores current standards, regulations, test methods, and guidelines to provide insight on how standby power for lighting systems is addressed around the world to influence the next generation of standards for these devices.
