More energy savings with sustainable lighting and architecture
Other than providing a natural light source and acting as a landmark for the area, the towers also provide ventilation and maintain the indoor temperature. In addition, air tunnels buried underground on both sides will inject cool air in summer and warm outside air in winter. These air tunnels will help save about 40% of the heating and air-conditioning energy used in cathedrals and minimize energy consumption by using an eco-friendly geothermal system.
The more light is emitted, the higher the current is needed and the temperature increases accordingly as well. Such high temperature overtime leads to rapid degradation of the LED modules, thus needing more replacements. ERCO develops lighting technology, electronics and thermal managements in-house. The luminaires provide high efficiency light (in lumens per watt) and maximum effective light (in lux per watt), because special lenses direct light only where it’s needed and human perception requires it. With this given, the amount of energy and luminaires needed could be reduced. Nevertheless, enough light in the large space areas with high ceilings could be provided perfectly.
