Strategies for Energy Savings


Greengate Commitment

 

The Greengate mission is to provide a range of flexible cost effective solutions to meet the energy saving challenges of lighting users, from simple stand alone sensors to complex intelligent networks.

Increasing energy prices and ever more demanding legislation make it more important than ever to invest in the right energy conservation solutions to meet your need.

 

Code Compliance

  • Improves BREEAM & LEED scoring for building sustainability.
  • Contributes to energy reduction targets under Climate Change Levy (CCL) and Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) programmes.
  • Qualifies for Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) applications.
  • Delivers lighting control requirements under UK Building Regs: L2a & L2b and BRE: 498

 


Lighting can account for over 40% of the total energy consumed daily by commercial, industrial, or institutional buildings. When trying to improve the energy efficiency of a project, lighting control is an ideal place to start.

Greengate lighting control can offer more than just energy savings. Simple specifications, easy installation and low cost of ownership all contribute to best value systems that deliver significant results.

Get more from your lighting system and stay ahead of ever more demanding code requirements with four simple steps:

1. Good Design

Lighting controls can easily eliminate energy waste by improving the fit between the light provided by the building and the light needed by the employees or occupants. comfort and individual control over personal light levels at each work station.

2. Sense Occupation

Use sensors to detect occupancy in a space. When the room is unoccupied, the lights are turned off or dimmed to a predetermined level, saving energy while the room is empty.

3. Intelligent Schedule

Employ scheduled control throughout an entire floor or building. Use a time clock, pushbutton, or PC control to switch or dim lighting of all types, interior or exterior, on a schedule.

4. Work with Natural Daylight

Use photocells to replace artificial light with natural light when its available. Maintain light levels with controlled luminance
