ENERGY SAVING FROM OPTIMUM DESIGN AND CONTROL OF LIGHTING IN OFFICE BUILDINGS - DEMONSTRATION PROJECT
This document is the final report of a demonstration project carried out with financial support from the Commission of the European Communities, Directorate General for Energy (ref.. Contract No EE-215-79-NL). This project was carried out during 1980/81 in a typical office building (six floors, central corridor, rooms on both sides, 30 rooms per floor), to examine to what extent energy could be saved by optimizing the lighting systems of the office. The aim was to find a system which would give maximum energy savings together with a perfectly satisfactory level of illumination. Five different systems were investigated, including several control systems. The conclusions of this project were as follows: (i) energy savings from 63 % to 84 % of the previous electrical consumption (global energy savings: 73 %); (ii) pay-back period of the investment: 2 to 5 years.
