Renovation of the whole building.
The dimmable luminaires set in all classrooms are controlled by a natural light sensor that reduces the lighting according to the actual needs and switches it off when the rooms are empty.
An exhaustive market analysis based on a 10 year life cycle led to the selection of the best price/quality/consumption equipment: fluorecent T5 sources with very high-performance UGR<19 optics (86%), a globally better solution than the available led technology.
Diffused light luminaries in common areas use high efficient led sources controlled by natural light sensors.
