Lumenata have long experience in designing energy-efficient lighting for offices. Reducing lighting to the level of task-related illuminance is a first step towards reducing energy costs. Nowadays work in modern offices is mainly carried out on self-illuminating screens and making notes on paper only happens occasionally, so general lighting can be reduced. Employees can switch on task lights if they temporarily need higher illuminance levels.
By focusing on lighting essential functional areas such as desks, further energy cost savings can be made. Desks only take up a limited part of the floor space compared to the complete office, this aspect significantly affects energy requirements. Uniform vertical lighting is also more efficient. A further major potential for energy saving is the integration of sensors for dynamically adapting the lighting level during the course of a day. Sensors allows the intensity of the lighting, especially in areas near to windows, to be significantly reduced. Detectors can also be installed so that lighting is automatically switched on only when employees use the room.
