CBM Energy Study


Published on

According the Department of Energy’s 2010 Buildings Energy Data Book, the average commercial building in the United States consumes $.70 of electricity per square foot in lighting costs annually. Meanwhile, 13 percent of commercial buildings in the United States are between 25,000 and 50,000 square feet. So by the math, for a typical 35,000- square foot building, lighting costs would be $24,500 annually. This annual lighting cost is for the average building, however in other applications, energy consumption for lighting is far higher.

Are there any real solutions???

Just have a look at the brief research work from CBM

We will look forward to hear back your thoughts

  5. 5. Lighting Upgrades, advanced heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems, efficient electric motors and automated energy management systems are just some of the ways you can save energy and money
  6. 6. Lighting Options
  7. 7. Advantages  Very cheap bulbs- only about $1.25 per bulb  Turns on instantly Disadvantages  Short lifespan- only last about 1,200 hours (about 3 months at 10 hours a day)  Emit a lot of heat  Very dull light  Use a lot of electricity to light small area 1
  8. 8. Advantages  Cheap- about $4 per bulb  Brighter than incandescent  Last 10x as long as incandescent bulbs Disadvantages  Emit a lot of heat  Only last 8,000 hours  Contain Mercury  Delayed start-up  Frequent on/off cycling will shorten lifespan 2
  9. 9. - Comes with a 3 year warranty - Light comes on instantly when turned on - Come in a variety of different bulb types - Bulbs do not draw power when they are turned on so they do not waste any energy. - Most efficient bulb on the market right now. Advantages - Last 50x longer than incandescent bulbs and 5x longer than fluorescent bulbs- 50,000 hours (13 and a half years at 10 hours a day or almost 6 years continuous) - Produces the same amount of light a 60 watt incandescent and 13 watt fluorescent bulb in just 8 watts - Brightest and clearest light - Emit no heat, so will save on your air conditioning bills as well 3
  10. 10.  LED lights used to be rather costly when they first came out, but as time has passed the price has gone down considerably. Commonly Misconceived Disadvantages 3

  13. 13. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that if 50% of the buildings in the U.S switch to LED lighting by 2027, we could: - Deliver savings of about $265 billion. 130+ Countries have their total annual GDP less then this amount - Avoid 40 new power plants. - Reduce lighting electricity demand by 33% in 2027. - The Federal Energy Policy Act of 2005 established a tax deduction for energy- efficient commercial buildings of between $0.30 and $1.80 per square foot depending on technology and amount of energy reduction If 50% of buildings in U.S Switch to LED lighting
  14. 14.  Diffused bulbs- Spreads light out over a wider area  Dimmable Globe bulbs- Dimmable from 100% to 10%. Consumes 10 watts of power while emitting the same amount of light as a 40 watt incandescent bulb  Track Lighting- 90% more efficient than incandescent and last 50 times longer  Flame tip- Designed to replace Candelabra bulbs, these draw only 3.5 watts while producing the same amount of light as a 25-35 watt incandescent bulb.  Tube Lights- Designed to replace fluorescent tube lighting, these are available in 8 watt bulbs (replaces 25 watt fluorescent) and 16 watt bulbs(replaces 40 watt fluorescent). Cheapest to install if you already have tube lighting.
