Flinders University Lighting Upgrade | Adelaide, South Australia
As part of its commitment to reduce the carbon footprint of campus operations, Flinders University commissioned an energy review of the Bedford Park campus. The review looked at high level opportunities to improve energy efficiency across the campus.
A co-generation plant and solar has been considered, but given the scale of Flinders University, this was not cost effective, hence the most suitable project would be to reduce their energy consumption through a refit of lighting in a key area of the university, the Sturt Library and BioSciences facility.
A cost effective solution is to cut the energy usage/costs through lighting, which plays a major part in the overall consumption. To date over 500 NovaBlade™ Panel Lights have been supplied and a number of NovaLED™ Maxi downlights. The NovaBlade™ Panel lights were chosen as the most appropriate product based on their slim profile, consistent, evenly distributed light with a high colour rendering index. Also they do not accumulate dust or grime and nowhere for insects to gain access which made them the perfect choice for the fitout.
The NovaLED™ Maxi downlight range was also selected as the most appropriate product, based on light output, wattage consumption and price positioning. Further, the integrated phase dimming capabilities found in the Lumex NovaLED™ Maxi range provided a perfect solution should dimming be a requirement in the future for the client.
Potential Energy & Maintenance Savings:
With the fittings installed, energy savings in excess of 50% can be achieved for the client with the additional benefits of significant savings over the life of the fixture with zero maintenance required.
To date, Flinders University have noted their power usage for lighting requirements in the upgraded buildings has at least halved already during the short period of time since installation.
