Integrated Energy-Efficient Lighting Scheme For Energy Saving In Building Sector
India is a very large producer as well as very large consumer of electricity due to it’s developing nature and very large population. Electricity is being transported to each and every corner of the country and so is the continuous increase in demand and per capita demand of electricity is now more than 1181 kWh per annum. Buildings inclusive both commercial and residential are one of the largest consumers of electricity and at the same time one of the largest sources of emission of CO2 and other pollutants. Saving in energy consumption in buildings means a lot in reference to saving in money and reduction in emission of pollution including CO2 as energy saved is energy produced. A suitable design having airy rooms, large window to wall ratio, lush green surrounding can make a building closer to that of a green building. In this paper an existing building is considered and saving in energy consumption as well as electricity bill is found using integrated lighting scheme, roof-top solar power plant and ceiling fitted dedicated sensing units. Arduino-based sensing units are used with flow-based node-red software for sensing the occupancy and luminous intensity signals. Together with BMS the sustainable model of the building is capable of large amount of energy saving with less amount of pollution.
