UWE Centre for Sport install IoT lighting solution for Olympic Standard Lighting
• Lux levels increased from 300 to 1,000 lux
• Annual energy savings of £24,000 (over 80% of previous costs)
• Reduction in fittings from 177 to 81
• Wattage dropped from 43,000W – 1,750W
• IoT system with real time energy monitoring and control
Connected Light were asked to propose a new smart lighting system for the Centre of Sport, as the existing lighting was inefficient and lacked control. The 300 lux fixed output from fluorescent fittings was not sufficient for official competitions in badminton, volleyball and basketball etc. and was unsuitable for the International Hockey for the England’s Women’s Team who use the sports hall for winter training.
The squash courts lighting also required higher light levels for the use of elite athletes, including world champion Mohammed El Shorbagy who also trains at the centre.
A Digital Lumens LED solution was proposed that could provide a 233% increase in lux levels whilst also reducing the number of fittings. Each fitting is individually addressable due to its smart technology, which in turn gives zonal control, light scene setting, occupancy & daylight detection and real time energy monitoring.
“Connected Light have continued to deliver us with high quality solutions” said Stephen Carter, project engineer at UWE. “They have been instrumental in helping the University to improve efficiency and lighting aesthetics across the estate. We are thrilled with the results that the new lighting delivers”.
The university went on to win the Go Green Business award for ‘Most Improved’ organisation in the ‘Energy & Efficiency’ which was helped by their new lighting.
