  • Use of Energy-Efficient Tri-Prosphor Lamps: Kodak (Australasia)

    Kodak (Australasia) Pty Ltd has successfully implemented a cleaner production initiative in a building, which is used to fabricate plastic and metal products. The initiative raised illumination levels by 128 percent while lowering electricity use by 30 percent. The changes involved cost $21,350, had a direct payback period of 3.8 years, and substantially improved the working environment. ...


  • A Better Mousetrap: High-Efficiency Halogen Lamps Are a Superior Energy-Efficient Lighting Solution for Existing Recessed Downlights

    For many homeowners, especially those with children, the kitchen is the most lived-in room in the house. It's a gathering place, a workspace, a study area, an entertainment venue and of course, a room in which to enjoy meals together. Thus, it's not uncommon for kitchen lights to be switched on for four or more hours per day. This presents a legitimate opportunity to save money and reduce air ...

  • Honolulu’s LED Lamps: Cutting on Carbon and Trimming Tax

    Honolulu, the Hawaiian capital’s energy costs rank tenth on the pollution lists. In an attempt to reduce this figure, the city mayor wants to install solar street lamps which will help cut tax and Greenhouse Gas emissions. Hawaii stands third in least energy consumption per capita, but the increasingly high population density mounts up its energy costs. 2013 saw a reduction in the ...

  • Energy Efficient Products: the case of Latin America

    Companies manufacturing and selling appliances, equipment and lighting in Latin America (LA) face a growing demand from governments and consumers: reducing energy consumption. In a region of about 20 countries, where Spanish is the dominant language and regulatory systems are based on similar legal models, this demand wouldn’t seem to be a significant regulatory problem to energy-using ...

  • Delphi research assessment for popularising Compact Fluorescent Lamps in India

    In continuation of our earlier work on popularising a seemingly perfect illumination technology, i.e. the compact fluorescent lamp (CFL), a Delphi study was undertaken with experts in lighting technology, backed with an intense focus group interaction to settle divergences and discordances noticed earlier, when the authors had recommended an aggressive implementation of the prescription for ...

  • Costs and Benefits of Energy Efficient Lighting and Technology

    In developed nations, lighting accounts for a large portion of the entire amount of electrical power consumed. In the United States, lighting is responsible for approximately 20% of total electricity consumption. In Canada, up to 50% of the electricity used in residential areas is consumed by lighting. In the US and Canada, lighting accounts for about 35% of the electricity used in commercial ...

  • A Comparison Of Microbial Repair Mechanisms With Low Pressure And Medium Pressure UV Lamps

    Introduction It is well-known that bacteria and other microorganisms are capable of repairing their DNA following damage by ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Known as ‘reactivation’, it is a natural defense mechanism that has evolved over millions of years. Some microorganisms need visible light in order to repair their DNA (known as ‘photoreactivation’), while others can repair their DNA without light ...

  • Plan B efficiency and conservation measures drop energy demand by 2020

    Projections from the International Energy Agency show global energy demand growing by close to 30 percent by 2020, setting the stage for massive growth in the carbon dioxide emissions that are warming our planet. But dramatically ramping up energy efficiency would allow the world to not only avoid growth in energy demand but actually reduce global demand to below 2006 levels by 2020. We can ...

  • TOC analyser improves lab efficiency

    Leading instrumentation company HACH LANGE is helping a number of key customers save valuable time and costs with its new IL550 TOC-TN analyser. TOC analysis is vitally important in applications ranging from power generation, wastewater, drinking water, surface water and ultrapure water, to agricultural soils, contaminated land and food. HACH LANGE analysers therefore offer a range of options ...


  • Prediction of the effects of vortex shedding on UV disinfection efficiency

    An assessment is made of the importance of vortex shedding which occurs from UV lamps on the efficacy of disinfection in UV channels. The focus is on the high Reynolds-number regime where turbulent flow conditions prevail and where there exists a strong interaction between the periodic mean-flow unsteadiness and the random turbulent motions. Simulations are performed of the flow around four ...

  • Efficient light bulbs are also affected by variations in brightness caused by the mains

    Until now the new lighting technologies, in other words, more energy-efficient lamps,have been assumed to be less sensitive than the incandescent bulbs to voltage fluctuations in the electrical power supply, one of the most striking disturbances. The research group Signal and Communications Group (GSC) of the UPV/EHU’s Faculty of Engineering in Bilbao has conducted a thorough analysis of ...

  • A new light on saving energy

    Some 80,000 dynamic street lights have been installed in Europe over the past few years. Quite a modest number if you consider that there are some 91 million light points in Europe. The city of Oslo alone has 54,000 street lights. A dynamic street light is a system that tells you exactly how much energy each single luminary is using and when its lamp needs to be replaced. It adapts the light ...
