This small business office comprises an open plan workspace and two separate meeting rooms. Two walls of the office comprise large glass windows, so the space enjoys significant natural light. The office is used five days a week and has regular occupancy of between 6-10 staff.
The installation involved replacing old 2 X 36W fluorescent fittings operated by a simple wall switch, with Organic Response enabled 32W Aurora LED panels supplied by Eagle Lighting. The entire luminaire upgrade, undertaken during working hours, took under 2 hours to complete with minimal disruption to staff. Given that the Organic Response technology is pre-installed into the luminaires, no additional controls installation time was required.
A simple 20 minute optimisation using the Organic Response smartphone app delivered a significant reduction in energy consumption compared to the old lighting, and the activation of Organic Response’s daylight dimming function increased the total control savings to 78%.
The response of staff to the new lighting has been very favourable, with several commenting on the reduced glare.
“Apart from the noticeably improved lighting quality, I was amazed at the extent of the energy savings. The energy reduction related to lighting was close to 90%, but what was really surprising was that, as a result, our total energy bill for the office reduced by 75%. Which illustrates how big a contribution lighting makes to overall energy usage.” – Jack Singleton, Chairman of Phone Names.
