Energy consumption of Lighting

Lighting or illumination is the deliberate use of light to achieve a practical or aesthetic effect. Lighting includes the use of both artificial light sources like lamps and light fixtures, as well as natural illumination by capturing daylight. Are you interested in LED lightings from China? What do you know about the energy consumption of lighting?

Artificial lighting consumes a significant part of all electrical energy consumed worldwide. In homes and offices from 20 to 50 percent of total energy consumed is due to lighting. Most importantly, for some buildings over 90 percent of lighting energy consumed can be an unnecessary expense through over-illumination. As LED lighting is more environmental friendly thus led strip manufacturer pays a lot of attention in LED market. Specification of illumination requirements is the basic concept of deciding how much illumination is required for a given task. Clearly, much less light is required to illuminate a hallway or bathroom compared to that needed for a word processing work station.

There are several strategies available to minimize energy requirements in any building: specification of illumination requirements for each given use area; analysis of lighting quality to ensure that adverse components of lighting re not biasing the design; integration of space planning and interior architecture to lighting design; design of time of day use that does not expend unnecessary energy; selection of fixture and lamp types that reflect best available technology for energy conservation; training of building occupants to use lighting equipment in most efficient manner. Generally speaking, the energy expended is proportional to the design illumination level.
