Car Park Lighting Refurbishment

There's several benefits to refurbishing the lighting of a car park. From indoor to outdoor let's discuss...

  • Increased energy efficiency = reducing energy costs
  • Long Lifespan
  • Low Maintenance
  • C02 reduction
  • Lighting Controls for further energy efficiency and C02 reduction
  • Creating safer spaces for those using and working in it
  • Good lighting solutions can enhance the non-visual communication – in accordance with the lighting regulation EN 12464-1 which can be key for car park areas
  • Help to reduce dark zones and therefore lowers the risks of accidents
  • Facilitates orientation by ensuring vehicles, persons and obstacles are easier to recognize

Let's take a look at what happens when the lighting for an indoor car park is refurbished, moving from the soon to be banned fluorescent lamps to LED. We also look at what controls can do to further increase energy savings and C02 emission reductions.

Refurbishment project; Upgrade an indoor car park

  • Upgrade a car park by replacing the current fluorescent fittings with Aquaforce Pro
  • The car park is 90m by 50m with a ceiling height of 2.5m
  • In operation 7 days a week, 24 hours a day
  • Based on an energy cost of 26.6 (Eur/a)/kW
  • Calculations are based on a 12-year lifetime

The Solution (Fluorescent to LED)

  • The upgrade will replace 125 1x58W T26 Aquaforce II with 125 Aquaforce Pro 4300lm with a wide beam optic
  • There is a 48% saving on energy usage over the lifetime
  • 33666 kg Co2 reduction over lifetime
  • Return on investment is just under 18 months

Now let's add controls

  • Upgrading the lighting solution in a carpark using Aquaforce Pro and basicDIM
  • Configuring the system into zones and dimming to 10% when the sensors are not active will save over 80% in energy costs vs the original fluorescent fitting
  • Using wireless basicDIM means that no additional wiring is required, saving an additional investment
  • 60899 kg Co2 reduction over lifetime
  • Return on investment is under 24 months
