Lighting Energy Standards

Workplace Lighting Energy Performance Standards address the importance of evaluation of energy consumption, allocation, and other such calculations aimed at improving overall performance. These standards describe methods of classifying total building energy performance as well as that of specific types of luminaires, providing a focal point of investigation into the optimization of energy consumption. Furthermore, principles for the inspection, monitoring, and testing of selected lighting practices are included, aiding in the development of efficient lighting and energy performance practices.

AS 4934.2-2011

Incandescent lamps for general lighting services - Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) requirements (FOREIGN STANDARD)

Specifies minimum energy performance standards requirements for tungsten filament lamps and tungsten halogen lamps used in general lighting services.


AS/NZS 4847.1:2010

Selfballasted lamps for general lighting services - Test methods - Energy performance (FOREIGN STANDARD)

Specifies the test methods and conditions for self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and other gas-discharge lamps with integrated means for controlling starting and stable operation that are intended for domestic and similar general lighting purposes.


AS/NZS 4783.1:2001 (R2013)

Performance of electrical lighting equipment Ballasts for fluorescent lamps Method of measurement to determine energy consumption and performance of ballasts lamp circuits FOREIGN STANDARD

Provides methods of measurement of ballast energy consumption and performance when used with associated fluorescent lamps as part of luminaires and applies to those covered within the scope of IEC 60081 and IEC 60901. The common methods practiced in major parts of the world, Europe in particular are prescribed in this Standard and relevant appendices. The tests specified are derived from EN 50294 with significant restructuring and modifications. The scope of this Standard excludes self-ballasted lamps and does not cover safety requirements.
