Abstract

Reducing global energy consumption is a challenge to limit the rise in average earth temperature. The use of lighting controls in the building leads to energy savings. The objective of this study is to evaluate the energy savings potential in buildings in tropical zone due to lighting controls. The results of the simulations show that 47.6% of energy savings could be obtained with a dimming control and 33.3% with an on/off control in this office considered.
