Monthly Archives: “Incorporating day-lighting and lighting controls with a building automation system (BAS) can result in significant energy savings. There are other benefits as well, including compliance with energy codes, U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED, credits, and Energy Star. A successful BAS design that incorporates day-lighting and lighting controls will help meet energy codes, achieve LEED prerequisites and credits, save energy while maintaining appropriate lighting levels for the building occupants, and provide the facility manager with a system to collect and analyze data relating to lighting energy usage. The designer should advise the facility’s owner of the added design and implementation costs of the system against the calculated energy savings and return on investment.” Michael Chow is the founder and owner of Metro CD Engineering.

UK Government Minister to visit Control Network Solutions Ltd.

As the UK Government continues to develop policies that support the UK’s determination to reduce its CO2 emissions according to the commitments made under the Kyoto Protocol, it takes serious interest in innovative, often market disruptive, solutions that support such.
The visit to Control Network Solutions (CNS) is to enable Ministers learn more about how CNS’s innovative wireless/batteryless solution called “cns-enocean” delivers at lower cost than traditional EnOcean solutions, better end client experience, whilst reducing energy demand and fully supporting load shedding solutions.

The visit to Control Network Solutions (CNS) is to enable Ministers learn more about how CNS’s innovative intelligent lighting solution called “elitedali” delivers at lower cost than traditionally delivered lighting solutions, better end client experience, whilst reducing energy demand per light fitting and fully supporting load shedding solutions. Further independent E U study shows that elitedali offers significantly reduced CO2 emissions when compared to traditional intelligent lighting solutions both at point of manufacture and in use.
