NEN, the Dutch Standards Institute has selected an innovative lighting control solution for its Headquarters in Delft, Netherlands featuring Organic Response-enabled LED luminaires from Feilo Sylvania.
The Institute aims to be a leader in running energy efficient and smart buildings. As such, when the lighting contract was put out for tender for its HQ building in Delft the requirement was for a lighting system that not only would deliver the maximum in energy saving, but also support better decision making for the building management
Challenges and Actions
NEN’s Edwin van der Zijden signed the official agreement with Patrick Stevens of Relighting and Marco Brugman of Feilo Sylvania earlier this year after a tender process which saw cooperation between the platform My Sustainable Business and its partner Relighting. This joint presentation was supported by sophisticated lighting design by Feilo Sylvania, providing a compelling solution answering NEN’s brief for a cost efficient, easy to install, internet connected smart lighting system. The project is due for completion in November.
We are delighted to be involved with this innovative project,” comments Frits Cornelisse, Netherlands Country Manager Feilo Sylvania. This installation will be one of the first projects in Europe to utilise the full potential of the Feilo Sylvania Smart Lighting Portal and will allow NEN to manage the energy efficiency and occupancy of its building effectively. It was great to work alongside My Sustainable Business and Relighting to put together an inventive tender fully utilising the energy and performance benefits that our connected luminaires can bring to such a project.”
1,000 Sylvania Rana LED luminaires equipped with Organic Response technology are to be installed throughout the building. This total solution also includes the innovative Feilo Sylvania Smart Lighting Portal: a user-friendly web platform that expands on the benefits of the lighting control system and provides connectivity to the smart building system.
The portal offers a powerful new tool for building owners, thanks to the PIR-sensor found in each Organic Response-enabled luminaire. Through heat mapping, the network of Sylvania luminaires provides accurate data about the occupancy of the building.
Using this valuable information, room use and building occupancy levels can be identified, enabling optimization of costs such as cleaning, heating, security and so on. The portal also enables the facility manager to analyse the energy use of each luminaire in the building, monitoring breakdowns and identifying where maintenance may be required.
Lessons & Results
Bastiaan de Groot, Global Director Strategy & New Business Development adds,
The case for energy savings has already been proven and this project will demonstrate the value of acting upon occupancy data to deliver more energy efficiencies, rather than just replacing old fittings with LED luminaires. For example, first estimations of the potential value of the occupancy data is 12 times higher than the value of the expected energy savings.”
With Feilo Sylvania incorporating Organic Response technology, the solution being provided is completely flexible, requires no cabling and is auto-commissioning, making it extremely easy to install. It is also cost-effective solution as the upfront cost of the system is lower than a comparable DALI solution, which is also not capable of providing the valuable data. Feilo Sylvania will be following up with more information and details on the completed project in due course.
