Low-carbon lighting developed in US

Low-carbon lighting developed in US
A newly-developed system of low-carbon intelligent light-dimming technology is set to be marketed in the US, it has emerged.

The light management system, developed by Lumenergi with help from an investment provided by Low Carbon Accelerator, is thought to reduce electricity demand from lighting by up to 70 per cent.

Using Dimming Electronic Ballast (DEB) technology, the system automatically dims florescent lights at certain times of the day based on the amount of natural daylight entering a building.

It is thought that such a system could ease pressure on electricity firms by cutting energy use at peak times.

Low Carbon Accelerator's Mark Shorrock stated that electricity firms could develop corporate incentives to firms that choose to utilise the low-carbon technology.

Last week, the Times suggested that replacing traditional light bulbs with energy-efficient LED bulbs may make homes greener and save around £7 per bulb per year on annual electricity bills.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18472763-ADNFCR
