Our integrated technology is what makes ZEL an attractive and solid business proposition, that goes beyond energy savings to create future-proofed, sustainable buildings with safe, pleasant and productive working environments.
By optimising the application and design of Kingspan Day-Lite polycarbonate rooflights, we can maximise the benefit of natural light, reducing energy demand and improving building comfort levels.
Research shows that more exposure to natural light enhances
the productivity, safety and wellbeing of a building’s occupants. Yet many of today’s commercial and industrial buildings are still equipped with inefficient High Intensity Discharge (HID) lighting, that provides a poor quality of light that is often dull and yellowish.
With the introduction of Kingspan Smart-Lite, our highly-efficient intelligent LED technology, a natural quality of light is created, replicating the midday sunlight in terms of colour temperature and vibrancy. Furthermore, lighting energy costs are minimised, typically offering a reduction of 50% when compared to traditional lighting sources.
Each Kingspan Smart-Lite luminaire can include smart controls that react rapidly to changing environmental conditions. Automatic daylight dimming ensures the most efficient use of natural daylight, whilst occupancy sensors provide precise zonal control, so that areas are only lit when required. This intelligent technology can typically provide an additional energy saving of 40%.
With the addition of Kingspan Energy Rooftop Solar PV, we can eliminate the residual lighting energy demand, achieving or surpassing our ZEL objective.
Pay Back Proposal
During the early design stage, a financial assessment of the project will be carried out, providing a preliminary analysis of the project and reporting on the following key parameters:
*A base case is needed for comparison.
We offer a range of funding options, for both the individual elements of our ZEL solution or the package as a whole, including Power Purchase and Shared Saving Agreements. Please contact us for more information.
Utilising advanced virtual environment modelling and expertise, we assess building operator and design team requirements, taking into account key parameters such as location, orientation, work activities and environment, in order to create the optimal,
tailor-made lighting design.
We use sophisticated software to create a virtual model of
the building and its environment, including the path of the sun throughout the year and typical historical weather data. With this knowledge, the performance and configuration of Kingspan Day-Lite rooflights can be assessed and optimised to meet the occupancy requirements of the building.
Following this, a Kingspan Smart-Lite intelligent LED lighting system is designed, complementing the natural daylight generated by our Kingspan Day-Lite systems and optimising the lighting energy demand.
Finally, the residual lighting energy demand is calculated and a Kingspan Energy Rooftop Solar PV array is designed accordingly.
