Lighting as a Service: A New Model for Energy Efficiency

Traditionally, facilities managers have looked to energy efficient lighting upgrades as a means to reduce operating costs, lower maintenance expenses and support enterprise-wide “green” initiatives. These upgrades typically require a capital investment by the facility owner/operator. Although paybacks are attractive, competition for the capital investment among all other facility priorities is often a roadblock. In this presentation we will examine the Lighting as a Service (LaaS) model as an alternative funding approach and its potential to accelerate the achievement of energy efficiency objectives.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the Lighting-as-a-Service (LaaS) concept and how it could help FMs reduce energy expenses without a capital investment
2. Discover the elements of a LaaS service model and how it emulates the outsourcing model used for many other business functions
3. Learn how LaaS can support the Internet of Things revolution
4. Compare the pros and cons of deploying energy efficient lighting upgrades as a comprehensive program vs. the traditional project-by-project approach
