The new LED floodlighting is expected to help the council reduce its energy bill by an estimated £14,000
(PRWEB UK) 19 April 2013
It has been reported in 4NI.co.uk that the hall is one of seven European buildings chosen to take part in the EU’s ILLUMINATE project, in which new solid state lighting systems will be installed in a number of other landmarks. However, Belfast City Hall is said to be the only building to make use of the new “IntelliPower” technology from Phillips Electronics. The 435 light fittings can each be individually controlled.
The new LED floodlighting is expected to help the council reduce its energy bill by an estimated £14,000 as well as reduce carbon emissions by 90 tonnes.
With a strong focus on improving energy efficient within the lighting industry, LEDs have undergone a major transformation in recent years. Having been heavily involved within the industry for a number of years, the team at Simple Lighting have witnessed how the light emitting diodes have improved. Providing a range of LED strip lights and tape lights, a representative from the firm shares their thoughts on the matter.
“It’s exciting to see that Belfast City Hall will be the first building to use the new intelligent lighting. We are beginning to see more large building and landmarks take advantage of the focus and flexibility LEDs can offer. One recent example is the Bay Bridge in San Fran Cisco, which recently underwent a revamp.”
