Organic Response’s STA Partner Havells Sylvania has been been awarded Energy Product of the Year at the 2015 Energy Managers Association (EMA) Private Sector Energy Management Awards for its Organic Response-enabled luminaire range.

The awards, which took place at EMEX, The Energy Management Exhibition, celebrate energy managers, products, services and companies across many sectors. The award is recognition from a wide audience of energy managers and not those just from the lighting industry, proving the solution can truly help in the drive towards energy efficiency. The Havells Sylvania Organic Response-enabled luminaires deliver an advanced lighting control solution that helps energy managers achieve maximum savings.

“To win this award is a fantastic accolade for Havells Sylvania and our partners Organic Response,” comments Bastiaan de Groot, Director of Lighting Controls at Havells Sylvania. “Havells Sylvania has over 100 years of manufacturing expertise, and combining with innovative companies such as Organic Response complements our overall strategy. These partnerships enable our customers to benefit from the leading innovations in the market whilst also benefitting from the scale, quality and brand of Havells Sylvania.”

Havells Sylvania’s Organic Response-enabled luminaires feature a sensor node integrated into each luminaire. Each sensor node contains a motion sensor, infrared transmitter, infrared receiver, ambient light sensor and intelligent microprocessor. This allows each luminaire to determine occupancy and adjust light levels accordingly, whilst broadcasting presence to nearby luminaires.

The system has several key advantages:

  • The luminaires automatically detect their neighbours and therefore automatically commission themselves, reducing upfront capital expenditure investment by up to 30%
  • As the nodes only light the exact area where light is needed and dim the rest of the space, the system saves an additional 35% of energy on top of a standard DALI control system
