Also in terms of lighting, the energy saving it is considered positive both from an economic and an environmental point of view. We are all convinced of this. The point is that people don't always have the responsibility to choose the solutions lighting more efficient have all the necessary information at their disposal.
This fact is very evident within large companies. Energy saving and reduction of consumption, together with corporate social responsibility, are always very important for decision makers, but more often than not the real consumption data are not available. And when they are available, they are not easily understood.
Measurement and monitoring of energy consumption are the first brick of energy saving, and this is very evident when it comes to lighting. 'Knowledge is power' and allows you to manage.
Talking about building lighting, the importance of solutions of energy monitoring that automatically collect consumption data, i.e. information that can lead decision makers to understand how to best manage energy use.
Today there are software that allow centralized control of the entirelighting of a building, but not only. These systems provide real-time control of faults and operating hours of each individual light point.
Through a dashboard that is easy to use and to interpret, the person in charge of managing lighting and energy consumption can know in real time how much each light point is consuming, create a historical archive of consumption data and monitor the obsolescence of the lamp, so as to provide for its replacement before it stops working.
The most advanced systems of lighting they are also equipped with sensors that can automatically adjust the supply of light based on natural lighting, as well as presence sensors that automatically switch off the lighting bodies when there are no people in an environment.
It has been verified in the field that solutions of this type can lead to a 30% reduction in electricity consumption related tolighting. In cases of retrofit, i.e. modernization of thelighting in existing energy-intensive buildings, the solutions of lighting monitoring they are also implemented alone. In new buildings, however, they are usually integrated into building automation systems that cover the entire spectrum of a building's energy-intensive systems (heating, ventilation, etc.).
