2.4.2 Installation of electronic ballast

2.4.2 Installation of electronic ballast Description Electrical ballast is a device whose aim is limiting the amount of current that passes through a discharge lamp during the start-up. First, they provide the necessary voltage to start up the lamp and after that they limit the current. Lamps that use ballast are halogen lamps, [...]

2.4.3 Replacement of conventional halogen lamps by Infrared Reflective Coating (IRC) halogen lamps

2.4.3 Replacement of conventional halogen lamps by Infrared Reflective Coating (IRC) halogen lamps Description The innovative IRC technology increases the efficiency of halogen lamps by reflecting a major part of the generated useless IR radiation back to the coil where it is converted into visible light. The infrared reflective coating at the outside [...]

2.4.4 Replacement of incandescent lamps by Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs)

2.4.4 Replacement of incandescent lamps by Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) Description In a CFL, an electric current is driven through a tube containing argon and a small amount of mercury vapor. This generates invisible ultraviolet light that excites a fluorescent coating (called phosphor) on the inside of the tube, which then emits visible [...]

2.4.5 Installation of Lighting Emitting Diode (LED) lamps

2.4.5 Installation of Lighting Emitting Diode (LED) lamps Description Light in an LED is emitted by a solid, rather than a gas object as it is the case of the fluorescent tubes. The LED is a semiconductor diode that emits light when it is crossed by an electric current. Wavelength of the [...]

2.4.6 Replacement of fluorescent tubes by others with less diameter

2.4.6 Replacement of fluorescent tubes by others with less diameter Description The most commonly used fluorescent lamps today are the T8 (ø 26 mm). However, the T5, (ø 16 mm) which only work with auxiliary electronic equipment, have been developed. This, along with its minor diameter provides a high luminous efficiency, which can [...]

2.4.7 Replacement of standard fluorescent tubes by triphosphorous fluorescent tubes

2.4.7 Replacement of standard fluorescent tubes by triphosphorous fluorescent tubes Description Lamps that contain the next generation of phosphors offer improvements in efficiency as well as very good colour rendering. Benefits Provide between a 12 and 15% more light Longer lifespan (around 12,000-19,000 hours) Better light quality Less mercury [...]

2.5.2 Purchase of A+++ electrical appliances

2.5.2 Purchase of A+++ electrical appliances Description The EU established a system of energy labelling for better information on energy consumption of existing appliances on the market. It consists of A+++ to G rating (according to the energy consumption) with the A+++ having the best performance. E.g. a refrigerator of class A+++ consumes [...]

2.5.3 Purchase of laptops instead of desktop computers

2.5.3 Purchase of laptops instead of desktop computers Description In general, laptops are more efficient equipment than desktop computers. They have screens of liquid crystal which consumes much less energy than any conventional PC monitor, and they incorporate more energy-saving options. Benefits Laptop computers consume up to 80% less [...]

2.5.4 Purchase of monitors with LCD screen

2.5.4 Purchase of monitors with LCD screen Description Monitors with LCD (liquid crystal) screen consume between a 50-70% less energy in on mode than conventional screens of CRT (cathode ray). The most efficient LCDs monitors are those which are back illuminated with LED known also as LED monitors. Benefits [...]
