India is at the crossroad in its development path, India's building-occupied area has skyrocketed in the recent times. Buildings have already accounted for more than 30 percent of the country's electricity consumption, and nearly 70 percent of the buildings in India that will exist are yet to be built. Under a business-as-usual scenario, India's current power production is and will be unable to meet the expected demand. Energy efficiency will be the cheapest, fastest way to close the energy demand and supply gap. Incorporating energy-efficient windows, lighting, and air-conditioning systems at the design stage for new construction are more economical than costly retrofits. State and local governments, real estate developers, and financial institutions are critical to the successful development and implementation of energy-efficient buildings. Accelerating energy efficiency while India experiences an unprecedented growth in its buildings market provides a singular opportunity to generate tremendous financial benefits, while improving public health, combating climate change, and closing the widening gap between India's energy production and demand.
Lutron understands that in order to have total control of the lighting environment; one must control the biggest light source of the world – sunlight. Lutron Electronics introduces a new lighting control that finds a way how to reduce Lighting Energy Usage by 60%.
Energi TriPak is a simple, cost-effective, energy-saving light control which is used for both new construction and retrofit solutions. It is a family of products which provides the ability to choose the components that meet any project need and create the best light control solution for any space. This family of wireless load controllers, sensors and controls communicate via radio frequency, allowing the system to be easily installed without any complicated programming or additional wiring.
Energi TriPak is ideal for applications like classrooms, conference rooms, private offices, hallways, stairwells, washrooms, and break rooms. In most of the buildings, lighting and HVAC systems are the largest users of energy. Lutron’s solution Energi TriPak can reduce lighting energy consumption by up to 60% and HVAC energy consumption by 10% to 30% by offering wireless sensors that monitor occupancy and available daylight levels, and communicate that information to the load controller which can then adjust the lighting in the space to optimise energy efficiency.
The utilisation of Energi TriPak is beneficial to various aspects in our daily life. It allows teachers to tailor the lighting for all kinds of activities, including a perfect lighting environment during presentations by turning off whiteboard lighting while maintaining enough light on the desk surfaces for students to take notes.
Apart from classrooms, Energi TriPak is also essential in a public space such as a hallway washroom. Since lighting is on continuously in hallways or washrooms even when the space is unoccupied, which takes up most of the time within a day, energy consumption can be reduced easily by more than 50% by using Energi TriPak with a Radio Powr SavrTM wall-mount or ceiling-mount occupancy or vacancy sensor.
Saving Energy the Lutron Way
Lutron is committed to helping its customers find ways to save energy and all of Lutron’s lighting control systems enable customers to reduce electricity usage and extend lamp life significantly. In addition, the company’s range of shade and blind controls allow natural light levels to be maximized, offering the ultimate in efficient artificial and natural lighting control. Lutron leads the industry in controlling energy efficient light sources and full-range dimming is now possible for a wide range of fluorescent lamp types. The trend toward LED lighting for accent and general lighting is growing, and Lutron is there to control it all.
