How Can The Simplest Lighting Controls Contribute Towards Sustainable lighting?? 

Blog Banner

According to the International Energy Agency, lighting accounts for about 15% of global electricity consumption and 5% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. A study by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that implementing advanced lighting controls in commercial buildings can save up to 60% on lighting energy costs. 

Ever thought how much the buildings you occupy can impact the world around us? It’s mind-boggling when you think about it. How buildings are constructed and used can have far-reaching effects on the environment, both today and in the future. That’s why sustainability isn’t just a trendy buzzword. It’s an absolute necessity. 

With the world’s population constantly growing and natural resources becoming increasingly scarce, we have the responsibility to prioritize sustainability in everything we do. Whether it is reducing carbon footprint, conserving water, or minimizing waste, we all have a role in creating a more sustainable future. 

And one simple yet effective way to make a real difference is creating sustainable lighting by implementing smart lighting controls in our buildings.  

Lighting and Sustainability 

Lighting is a big contributor to a building’s energy use, which can cause some serious environmental issues. Luckily, we can address these concerns with energy-efficient lighting controls. By doing so, we can reduce  energy consumption, save on  energy bills, and create a healthier environment for ourselves and our future generations. It’s a win-win!

Effective Implementation Of Lighting Control Strategy  

Imagine a large office building with multiple floors and areas. Throughout the day, people come and go, and lighting needs keep changing. In some areas, lights are left ON even when no one is present, wasting energy and driving up costs. 

By implementing various lighting control strategies like occupancy/vacancy sensing, scheduling, plugload controls, task tuning, you can adjust the lighting based on occupancy, time of day, and other factors. This will avoid energy wastage.  

Tailor-made Lighting Experience 

Imagine you manage a large conference center where each event has different lighting needs. It is important to create the right atmosphere to enhance the space. And, with Lumos Controls, you can customize the lighting to meet the specific needs of each event. During a business meeting, you might choose to keep the lighting dim and focused on the presenter, while during a wedding, you might choose to create a romantic atmosphere with warm lighting. By customizing the lighting to meet the needs of each event, you  create a more memorable experience for occupants while also being more efficient and sustainable in your use of energy and resources. 

Lighting In Tune With Your Circadian Rhythm

By implementing various lighting control strategies like daylight harvesting, controlling color temperature and intensity, Lumos Controls allows you to reduce exposure to excessive light and  mitigate negative health effects. By dimming or turning off lights when they are not needed, we can create a more comfortable and healthy environment for occupants, and reduce energy consumption and associated costs. 

How Lumos Controls Contribute to  Sustainability Goals?  

At Lumos Controls, we believe, it is not just about being environmentally responsible, it’s about designing  sustainability in mind.   

Through building management systems, and automated demand response,  we focus on improving energy efficiency and sustainability in buildings. 

Building Management System or BMS  

Integrating Lumos Controls with Building Management Systems (BMS) help you leverage the benefits of multiple building systems. enhance the benefits of both systems. Building managers can make use of comprehensive data and insights into their energy usage and equipment performance. 

Automated Demand Response (ADR) 

With Lumos Controls, you can participate in ADR programs. And, you can automatically reduce energy usage during peak periods when the electricity grid is under strain. By doing so, building owners can earn incentives for reducing energy usage and help prevent blackouts. 

To Wrap Up 

Sustainability is a crucial concept that we must all consider when making decisions. By prioritizing sustainable practices and making conscious choices, we can ensure a better future for ourselves and generations to come.
