Electronics, Lighting and Networks

The Electronics, Lighting and Networks Group works to understand the energy implications of electronics, lighting, and networks, and develop novel solutions to save energy.

Key topics:

  • Electronics – responding to the growing energy use of electronics — consumer electronics, office equipment, processing of information, and others — we consider technical issues and develop energy saving solutions with broad application.
  • Lighting – improving the energy efficiency of lighting systems in buildings and homes throughout California and across the nation, and aiming to reduce lighting energy consumption by 50% over twenty years.
  • Networks – networks increase connectivity between people, between devices, and between people and devices, providing opportunities for energy efficiency and saving.
  • Transportation – We analyze how the combination of vehicle technology, land-use patterns, and driving behavior affect energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, and criteria pollutant emissions in the transportation sector.
