2011 Case Study: Bombardier Learjet

Bombardier is a world-leading manufacturer of planes and trains that is constantly trying to find ways to become a more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly company. In a world of rising energy costs and strict environmental regulations, the host company has decided to work alongside the Pollution Prevention Institute at Kansas State by hiring intern Donald Ronck to reduce the company's overall impact on the environment. The intern's goal was to continue the decline in energy usage through means of energy efficiency and reduction. He found three different lighting projects that accomplish this, which included daylight harvesting in aircraft hangars, using occupancy sensors in work areas, and upgrading existing metal halide fixtures to new LED technology.
