Aura Eco Saver Long Life in the European Parliament
The European Parliament is applying a new environmental policy, which predefines the electrical consumption and the degree of comfort required when parliament in session. That’s why the European Parliament contacted Aura Light. Today they are using Aura Eco Saver Long Life, which will permit a 25,000 kWh/year reduction in energy consumption.
The European Parliament is EMAS (Environmental Management and Audit Scheme) certified and is applying a new environmental policy. This policy predefines the electrical consumption and the degree of comfort required when the Parliament is in session. In order to comply with this policy in terms of lighting, the Parliament contacted Aura Light.
Reduced energy consumption
This is how the operator, Axima Maintenance, explains it:
“The installation of Eco Saver Long Life at the European Parliament will permit a 25,000 kWh/year reduction in energy consumption, in other words a reduction of 12%, without affecting the quality of the lighting. This equals maintenance cost savings of more than 83,000 Euros during the lifetime of the tubes.”
Benefit in terms of servicing quality
The long service life of Eco Saver Long Life is an additional benefit. The requirements of the Parliament in terms of quality of performance and service mean that the fittings must always be in good working order, particularly the lighting for the debating chamber and other areas when the Parliament is in session. Thanks to the long service life of Eco Saver Long Life tubes, we will be in a position to guarantee this service and reduce the ecological impact and costs of maintenance.
“For the moment we will be analyzing the results of this installation and looking at the possibility of installing Aura Light lamps in other areas,” is how the operator sums it up.
