This page describes lighting technologies and how they are used in the scheme

The ELT portal is now open for non-ACPs to create accounts and submit products

Commercial lighting

The ESS Rule provides a method for up-front deeming of energy savings from lighting upgrades undertaken at some commercial and industrial sites: the Commercial Lighting Energy Savings Formula

The ESS Rule also has specific requirements for the types of lighting that may be installed under this method.  Products classified as emerging lighting technologies must be accepted for use by IPART before being used in an upgrade. Accredited Certificate Providers and other organisations, eg, lighting suppliers, may apply to have equipment accepted through the ELT Portal.  

More information on this process can be found on the Commercial Lighting Requirements page.

HEER lighting

The ESS Rule provides a method for up-front deeming of energy savings from upgrades undertaken at residential and small business sites, including for the replacement of inefficient lighting: the Home Energy Efficiency Retrofits method. 

The ESS Rule also has specific requirements for the types of lighting that may be installed under this method.  Certain lighting products must be accepted for use by IPART before then can be used in an upgrade.  

More information on how Accredited Certificate Providers accredited to use the Home Energy Efficiency Retrofits method can apply to have equipment accepted can be found on HEER Lighting Requirements page.
