Dramatic School Energy Saving Possible With Revolutionary Lighting Control System

Encelium Technologies offers a revolutionary energy management system to drive school energy saving. Encelium’s Energy Control System™ (ECS) can take on the challenges of saving lighting energy in schools by implementing a customized solution to college and university campus’ unique areas.

Online PR News – 21-August-2010 – – Encelium Technologies brings a revolutionary lighting energy control system ideal for school, college and university campuses. Encelium’s Energy Control System™ (ECS) offers a solution to higher education facilities seeking ways to “green” their campuses.

Educational facilities offer one of the greatest challenges to energy management and lighting control systems due to their diverse use coupled with typically long operating hours. The challenge is compounded by the unique audio visual requirements that are an essential part of modern day instruction. The scope of a typical college or university campus is large – however, there are unique areas each requiring a unique approach to optimize both lighting energy savings and the learning environment.

“Lighting is a key component in energy management as it accounts for up to 30% to 50% of electricity use in schools. Implementing an energy management system can be a challenge as different areas require unique treatment.” said Tony Marano, president and CEO of Encelium. “ECS deploys six strategies facility-wide while customizing lighting control in unique areas. This allows for maximum lighting energy savings of 50-75% and works towards an ideal “green” campus.”

ECS seamlessly integrates and simultaneously deploys six energy-management strategies facility-wide. These include personal controls, task tuning, daylight harvesting, smart time scheduling, occupancy sensing and load shedding. As the most advanced lighting control solution for commercial buildings, ECS typically meets or exceeds today’s sustainable requirements for new or existing office buildings. Designed to reduce lighting-related energy costs by 50 to 75 percent, the system also contributes between 12 to 18 points, depending on the application, toward achieving the coveted U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED).

Encelium’s Energy Control System™ (ECS), the most advanced lighting control solution on the market. ECS reduces lighting energy consumption as well as energy costs at a faster rate than other environmental measures and has an average payback on investment of two to five years. Since the company’s founding in 2001, ECS has been installed in more than 30 million square feet of commercial space across North America and Europe. The company has experienced tremendous growth, posting a 200 percent annual increase during the last two years.
