Abstract

In relation to recent attention focused on the use of energy by lighting, there is a large potential for commercial buildings to save energy in this respect. The use of energy-saving bulbs or dimming controls triggered by daylight, not only enables lighting energy saving, but delivers cooling energy through a reduction in indoor heat production. In this study, we examine the energy use in commercial buildings by evaluating lighting energy saving methods and the effect of using dimmer controls with a heat control method, which can both maximize the cooling load reduction during summer and save energy. Results show that the total energy from the reference commercial building was reduced by 20.9% by replacing LFL T12 bulbs with LEDs, together with an additional saving of 19.9% in cooling energy by using the lighting heat & dimming control method.
