ENERGY MANAGEMENT & OPTIMISATION

SAM has taken a holistic approach to Energy Management for existing and Green Buildings:  An Audit is conducted to see where the most saving can be achieved, using the Pareto Principle. A combination of both active and passive technologies are used.

Active Technologies encompass;

BMS (Building Management System)

  • Access Control
  • Fire Detection
  • CCTV
  • Lighting
  • HVAC
  • Heat Pumps
  • PV (Photovoltaic) Systems

Passive Technologies;

  • Double Glazing
  • Insulation of roofs, walls and floors
  • Alucobond® insulation
  • Recycled cork panels
  • Exfoliated vermiculite

DME ENERGY GOALS

Final Demand Reduction of 12 % by 2015

  • 15% reduction by 2015 of energy use in Industry & Mining
  • 15% reduction by 2015 of "parasitic" electrical usage
  • 15% reduction by 2015 of energy use Commercial & Public Building Sectors
  • 10% reduction by 2015 of energy use in Residential Sector
  • 9% reduction by 2015 of energy use in Transport

ELECTRICAL COSTS

Electricity Costs have doubled over the past three years 
Electricity Cost will rise by an average of 16% p.a. for the foreseeable future 
The compound effect means that electrical costs will become a major operational cost.

GPELED's Core Technology

  • Highly efficient thermal management solutions, to control and keep at minimum level the operating temperature of the LED components, which means enhancing their lifetime and luminous flux.
  • Highly efficient DC to DC converters embedded on the LED holding IC. Apart from maximizing the energy efficiency this choice allows the manufacture thin and compact lamps that can be connected to low voltage lines. Over voltage and over current protection circuits are included as well.
  • Highly efficient and reliable AC to DC converters with effciency rates from 75% in case of low voltage input lines (competitors figures range between 55% to 60%) and up to 93% in case of high input voltage. The high reliability of our devices make our lamps long lasting as the LED components (50K to 100K hours). Statistics show that the average life of poorly controlled LEDS is two years!
  • Customised optical solutions utilising lenses dedicated to special applications.
