DALI Part 252: Unlocking the Power of Energy Reporting 

DALI Part 252 Blog Banner

The world is facing an energy crisis due to the inefficient energy usage. Have you ever thought about how much energy we waste in our buildings? Surprisingly, lighting is one of the biggest consumers of energy. It is estimated that we waste as much as one third of the energy in our buildings on lighting alone. With energy prices skyrocketing, it’s more important than ever to be conscious of our energy consumption. As the new sustainability reporting requirements coming up in 2023, it’s crucial to have a clear understanding of our energy usage.  

The good news is that building communities are starting to understand the importance of energy savings and taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint. That’s where architects and contractors come in, by designing and building energy-efficient structures. With the help of innovative technologies, they can reduce energy wastage, and contribute to a greener future. Not only does it result in sustainability, but it also creates a more cost-effective and comfortable space. 

And this is where DALI Part 252 gains significance.      

What is DALI Part 252-Energy Reporting?

DALI- Part 252 refers to the energy data that is reported by an LED driver. This data includes information on active energy or power, apparent energy or power, and load-side energy or power. This information can be used to monitor the energy usage of lighting systems and to make adjustments to improve energy efficiency. By utilizing Energy Data (Part 252), it is possible to make informed decisions about energy consumption, which can help reduce costs and minimise environmental impact.
