OPTIMISE the electrical power contracted with home automation systems

Discover how it is possible to optimize the range of electrical power contracted in the home with the use of home automation systems: http://optimizar-potencia-electrica-contratada-sistemas-domotica-hogar

We tell you how you can use the various home automation systems to optimize the range of electrical power contracted in the home without extra costs, planning consumption and optimizing the conditions of the light contract.

Select the ideal range of contracted power

It seems obvious, but in many cases the houses have an inadequate power section that does not correspond to their needs and does not encourage an improvement in energy consumption habits. In order to choose the ideal amount of electrical power, it is necessary to resort to the criteria of a professional (electrician) or ultimately to use a power calculator. A single power change can be requested both up and down throughout the year, so it is strongly recommended that you make the checks before communicating the decision to the lighting supplier.

Bear in mind that electric heating systems consume more during the winter months and if you have to increase the contracted power again you will have to pay a very high rate and the saving forecast would not be met. Of course, it is totally out of the question to resort to any trick to increase the electrical power, because besides being dangerous it is totally illegal. On the other hand, it has been proven that investing in appliances with the best energy efficiency rating significantly reduces the amount of electrical power required to operate such equipment. In fact, home automation systems are the ideal help to avoid increasing the amount of electrical power contracted at home without giving up on the well-being of the home.

Home automation systems to maximize energy savings

Installing the following home automation solutions will allow you to have control of the whole house without having to increase the power or pay extra on the electricity bill:

Intelligent thermostats: one of the essential elements in an intelligent house to help control energy consumption with air conditioning equipment at any time of the year. It is a device capable of measuring the room temperature, which is connected to a compatible air conditioning system, in order to reach and maintain a recommended number of degrees both in winter and summer.
Automatic blinds and curtains: these are modules that are not too large and preferably discreetly connected to the electricity supply that can be controlled remotely and even programmed with fixed times to achieve the best ventilation, lighting, temperature and simulate human presence. If you want to know more about the advantages of their installation we recommend the following article.
LED lighting: there are low consumption bulbs that can work automatically and also self-regulate the tone and power of light. By using them during off-peak hours (depending on the hourly rate) you can save a lot of energy and save on your bills.
Access control systems: they allow to know who enters and leaves the house from any place, they alert about undesirable presences and they allow the user to see what happens inside and outside the house thanks to the installation of surveillance cameras. They also help to save energy because they allow to detect the oversights in the house that can be solved at a distance like: lights on, raised blinds…

PORT OF DÉNIA. Lighting of the Seafront Promenade

Dénia Seafront Promenade – Alicante

In the summer of 2020, despite the difficulties, a small extension of Dénia’s Paseo Marítimo was inaugurated by the company Varadero Port Dénia, which trusted Goodwork to renew the existing lighting and install new lights in this area of the port.

This project was carried out with our GW Vialia Street Light 35W, in white and with an anti-salt treatment necessary in a marine environment like this. The renovation of existing luminaires was also carried out with our 60W GW Flex LED Retrofit.

detalles VIALIA

In both cases this is a high quality and energy efficient LED technology, as well as offering a long life span due to its low heating rate. The special anti-salt treatment also contributes to its durability and conservation.

By not emitting harmful agents into the atmosphere and having light pollution controlled, it is very respectful of the environment, very important aspects for both Varadero Port Dénia and Goodwork.

The final result is lighting which enriches the visibility of the surroundings, reduces energy consumption and improves the safety and comfort of the users. This allows for the enjoyment of walks and sports by the sea even at night, in the unique environment of Dénia Port.

NEW STANDARDS for Efficient Lighting Installations

INTRODUCTION

ENERGY EFFICIENCY is about using the least amount of energy possible to meet our needs. The basis of WELL-BEING lies in managing to cover these needs, and whether this well-being is lasting over time depends on whether we have achieved it through SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT or not, that is to say without putting the well-being of future generations at risk.

ORIGINS and LEGISLATION EVOLUTION

28 years after the Rio Summit (1992), its slogan “Think globally, act locally” is still in force. We must bear in mind that a small action, in the field of environment, can have a considerable effect if it is part of a whole. The principle of sustainability aims to achieve a balance between the needs of human beings and the environment in which they live; hence the importance of acting in housing construction and urban development interventions in a sustainable manner.

In 2006 the European Commission launched its first “Action Plan for Energy Efficiency: Realising the Potential” (COM(2006)0545), which aimed to mobilise public opinion, politicians and markets to transform the internal energy market. Objective: to control and reduce energy demand.
This action plan has several updates (COM(2011)0109) and numerous directives covering various areas such as, Eco-design (2009/125/EU), Labelling (2010/30/EU), Energy efficiency of buildings (2010/31/EU) both new and existing.

This latest Buildings Directive and subsequent revisions (COM(2016)0860), calls on Member States to develop long-term national strategies for the renovation of their buildings, and to stimulate public and private investment in energy efficiency in buildings, with targets for 2030.
According to Commission data, buildings account for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions in the Union. Currently, about 35% of the Union’s buildings are over 50 years old. Improving the energy efficiency of buildings could lead to a reduction in energy consumption in the Union of 5-6% and around 5% in CO2 emissions.

Lighting is an essential part of this Energy Reduction.
In order to achieve efficient LIGHTING, we must achieve three objectives:
– Reduce consumption
– Extend the life of the luminaires
– Reduce the impact on the environment
Lighting is responsible for 19% of electricity consumption worldwide, to improve this data it is necessary to take efficient measures that mean savings, one of them can be to update the luminaires by LED technology.
All this must be encouraged by administrations and governments.

NEWS FROM CTE DB HE3

Royal Decree 235/2013, of 5 April, approved the basic procedure for energy efficiency certification of buildings.

CTE – Technical Building Code
DB – Basic Document
HE3 – Lighting Installation Conditions
VEEI – Energy Efficiency Value of Installation

There is a new version of the DB-HE in accordance with the transitional provisions of Royal Decree 732/2019, which will be compulsory for new construction and for interventions in existing buildings for those applying for a municipal building permit for from 28 June 2020.

“Buildings shall have lighting installations that are both appropriate to the needs of their users and energy efficient, with a control system that allows the lighting to be adjusted to the actual occupation of the area, as well as a regulation system that optimises the use of natural light, in areas that meet certain conditions”.

• The new DB-HE3 provides tables that relate the maximum power to be installed (W/m2) according to the use of that space.
(Ex: Restoration / VEEI lim 8.0 / max. 18 W/m2;
Parking / VEEI lim 4.0 / max. 5 W/m2)
The VEEI values are maintained with respect to previous standards, as a novelty the W/m2 values are limited.

• The facilities will have a control and regulation system IN EACH AREA that includes:
– Manual on/off system external to the electrical panel.
– A centralised time switch system in each electrical panel.
• The facilities will have a control and regulation system IN AREAS OF OCCASIONAL USE that includes:
– Manual on/off system external to the electrical panel.
– On/off control by means of a timed presence detection system or a timed push button system.

• Slight variations in the installation of Systems for the use of natural light, which regulate the lighting proportionally and automatically by means of a brightness sensor. They will be regulated according to their distance from windows or skylights, and when the glass surface is more than 11%.

From Goodwork we collaborate with architects and construction professionals doing studies and analysis of lighting to make energy efficiency in buildings possible.

How to save energy in a commercial premises thanks to LED lighting

The commercial premises not only require a large energy consumption but also need it for long hours; it is not the same as a house, which generally can make the bulk of consumption during certain hours. In this sense, it is very necessary in commercial premises to try to make an efficient consumption of energy, as it is very easy to make an extra expense due to the amount of resources that require electricity. One of the best ways to reduce this expenditure is by means of LED lights; however, they are useless if an adequate electricity tariff is not contracted.

Which electricity rate to choose?

Naturgy is one of the marketers that offers electricity tariffs for companies, which adapt perfectly to the consumption of your home. Many of Naturgy’s tariffs are hourly discriminatory; that is, they have cheaper consumption during promoted hours, which is ideal if Naturgy’s tariffs allow you to pay less for electricity. You can get more information about all of them at the following link: http://agua2013.es/naturgy-tarifas/.

In any case, remember that if you want to contract a tariff for the electricity you have just moved to, you will first have to change the owner of the electricity and, where appropriate, change the owner of the natural gas. The process of changing the owner of the light allows you to change the name of the supply and, once this has been done, you can modify the tariff in the event that the tariff contracted by the previous tenant does not meet your needs. Of course, both procedures can be requested in a single request. Once you have made the change of holder effective, you will be able to enjoy electricity consumption with complete peace of mind.

How do LED lights help me?

LED lights are energy-saving bulbs. What does that mean? They need less energy to produce light than a traditional bulb, which translates into lower electricity consumption and, therefore, a reduction in the electricity bill. Specifically, an LED bulb allows savings of up to 90% in the bill for the consumption of your bulbs compared to other modalities.

In this sense, it is positioned as the best option for saving electricity in your business. But this is not the only advantage of LEDs, here are other features that are equally important:

1. They do not produce heat, which in a brightly lit environment is to be welcomed.
2. Power can be regulated, perfect for combining sunlight.
3. LED lights can be any color you want.
4. Although they are somewhat more expensive than traditional light bulbs, it is compensated with a longer durability without forgetting that the consumption is much more reduced.
5. There are many types of LED bulbs: for ceiling lamps, decorative lamps, etc.

Without a doubt, LED lights are an unbeatable option if we want to save on electricity consumption. If you need more information, we recommend an article on the subject that you can read here.

Lifespan and guarantee for LED Luminaires

It is already known that LEDs provide a long lifespan and a saving in terms of maintenance and energy expenditure, which makes them an efficient solution.

LEDs lifespan, which is between 30,000h and 100,000h depending on the technology used, is one of their main advantages.

What does “lifespan” mean in LED lighting?

However, it is often thought that the lifespan refers to the time it will take for the luminaire to stop working, and it is actually the time during which the luminaire works without losing its luminous efficiency. LEDs do not normally “die”, but the level of light (lumens) gradually declines.

To indicate this data we use the nomenclature Ex: L70B10, which indicates the depreciation of the luminaire, not the failure.

L70B10 for 50.000h at 25ºC ———- This indicates that at 50.000h of use there can be 10% of the LEDs operating below 70% of the initial flux. This does not mean that they have failed but that their luminous efficiency has decreased. The data of 25ºC indicates that these measurements have been made under optimal laboratory conditions, without taking into account external factors that may influence the operation. In order to validate a statement about the lifespan, it is necessary to extrapolate the test data.

Lifespan LED

Factors influencing the service life of LEDs

The factors influencing the service life of LEDs are:

Temperature

The operating temperature is one of the most important factors affecting the service life. Both the ambient temperature and the junction temperature (internal of the LED) reduce its service life and can affect the quality of light (colour, intensity etc.). 

It is estimated that 70/80% of the energy consumed is converted to light, and 20/30% to heat. Therefore, how heat dissipates a LED luminaire is fundamental in its design and will be decisive in extending its life.

Intensity and voltage stability

The higher the electrical intensity of the LED is, the shorter the lifespan. If a LED is supercharged to get more lumens, this accelerates its degradation process and decreases its life.

It is important that the electronic controller or driver, is able to maintain constant voltage and electrical intensity (depending on the mode of operation chosen) through the LED without affecting the variations of the power supply or changes in ambient temperature.

External factors

As mentioned before, the useful life and efficiency values of LEDs are obtained in laboratory conditions with a constant temperature of 25ºC, in a clean environment, in the absence of vibrations, solar radiation, humidity, etc. These factors and other variables have to be taken into account, such as on/off times, voltage stability, etc., make the lifespan data approximate.

Sealing and housing design

The materials used in the manufacturing of the luminaire have a decisive impact on the ageing of the luminaire and its corrosion behavior. The levels of tightness and sealing are given by the degree of protection IP, and the degree of protection IK,  informs us of the resistance to shocks and vibrations. A luminaire with IP65 and IK08 would offer us guarantees for safe outdoor installations. 

We should also take into account the adequate heat dissipation (mentioned above) offered by the luminaire casing. All this helps to prolong its lifespan.

Goodwork takes all these factors into account and adapts the manufacture of its luminaires to the specific requirements of the projects. Technology is advancing very fast, and high-efficiency LEDs are increasingly offering a longer lifespan. For this reason, different types of LEDs are offered for the same luminaire, as the requirements of all projects and budgets are different.

Honesty in the technical sheets, takes precedence over marketing sense. After all, it’s all about trusting the manufacturer. The guarantee offered for the products is the best proof of their quality.

LIGHTING SEMINAR for Designers, Architects and Interior Designers

Goodwork celebrated on March 29th the Lighting Seminar for architecture professionals at the Chamber of Commerce of the Technology Park in Valencia.

With this Seminar Goodwork did not aim to increase its number of customers, but to secure them by giving them the necessary tools to get and choose the right product for their proposals and are fully satisfied when they work with us.

That is one of the reasons why we have always been active in courses, lectures and lighting seminars customized to the needs of each company, where the knowledge of our technicians could be useful to our customers and their projects. Users mainly architects and interior designers, and the level of satisfaction very good.

As for the contents, they were divided into five presentations covering all the fields where Goodwork can act. We wanted to transmit basic knowledge of Lighting, solve doubts and open the door to new LED lighting technologies, in addition to establishing relationships with attendees (Networking).

Presentation 1, given by José Soler, Goodwork engineer and head of R&D, covered all the basic concepts of Lighting and showed how to interpret the data necessary to make a good choice of luminaires according to the needs of the projects (Colour temperature, CRI, Dialux studies, etc.).

In lecture 2, given by José Tobajas, an engineer at ELT, the new Control Systems offered by his company were discussed, as well as Intelligent Lighting Systems, a future that is already here.

Presentation 3, given by the architect Ana Mª Ricca, CEO of Goodwork, consisted of a review of the world of Optical Fiber, in whose origins is the beginning of the company Goodwork, and that despite the leadership of LED is still viable for certain projects.

During the lunch break, attendees were able to enjoy some practical demonstrations and the novelties that Goodwork will incorporate in its new catalogue.

In the second part of the Seminar, presentations 4 and 5 were given by Guillermo and Sebastián Rothfuss respectively. The first is oriented towards Architectural Lighting, with emphasis on the different Communication Protocols between luminaires, DMX, Splitter, Amplifiers and other components of large installations.

To conclude, there was talk of Street Lighting and Road Illumination, their difficulties and regulations to comply with, and the benefits of LED Lighting not only because of its energy savings but also because of its low environmental impact.

All the presentations were accompanied by projects carried out by Goodwork that served as examples to explain the contents.

For all the Goodwork team this Seminar has been a pleasant experience, we have learned and enjoyed with all attendees, and above all we want to continue improving for future projects.

Intelligent lighting systems

Smart Lighting is the term used to refer to an Intelligent Lighting System . A definition of what and for what these systems are used would be:
An Intelligent Lighting System describes the optimal use of lighting. Establishing a balance between the energy consumed, the amount of light generated and its rational use, avoiding the waste of energy when illuminating or over-lighting spaces, both inside (buildings) and outside (streets, parks, etc.)..The energy efficiency is fundamental when talking about Smart Lighting. Intelligent Lighting Systems are based on achieving high energy efficiency by optimizing the level of lighting with lower energy consumption.

The SSL technology Solid State Lighting , has allowed the development of the Smart Lighting. The light-emitting diodes, LEDs, allow the use of sophisticated control and management systems which were unthinkable with traditional lighting. The luminaires developed and manufactured by Goodwork allow the use of Lighting Control Systems . They can be equipped with programmable drivers through wireless technology (WiFi, Bluetooth, RF, etc.) to which, in addition, sensors can be connected that allow them to interact in an autonomous way with the environment that surrounds them. The management of these luminaires is done by means of a luminaire management software, which is also supplied by Goodwork. It allows the person in charge of lighting to keep a detailed control of the state of the luminaires, their correct operation and consumption level, the switching on and off of the luminaires, among other functions.

intelligent lighting systems liria - goodworkint

For example, an urban luminaire can be remotely programmed with an optimal lighting sequence based on the lighting study of the area where it is and at the same time have proximity sensors or ambient lighting level.

What is achieved with the use of lighting control system?

  • Avoid wasting light in public spaces at certain times
  • Get more security
  • Encourages energy and economic savings.

Goodwork, in addition to the complete luminaire, can supply luminaire upgrade kits , which allow the luminaire casing to be maintained and the system to be upgraded with a PCB, intelligent driver and sensors. In this way it is possible the modernization of any set of exterior lighting that is based on traditional lighting (Sodium, Halogenides, etc.), allowing its control and management remotely.

All this, combined with an excellent lumens per watt consumed, makes our luminaires an excellent solution for architects and designers.

Types of illumination

It is evident that lighting plays a fundamental role in any space, be it interior or exterior. There are many types of lighting and knowing which is the right one for each space or environment is not an easy task. For this reason, from Goodwork, as LED lighting manufacturers experts in interior LED lighting and in public lighting with leds, we want to talk to you in this post about the types of lighting, and the range of products suitable in each case.

What types of lighting are there?

In this post we focus on explaining the four most prominent types: general lighting, focal, ambient and decorative.

  • General lighting: general lighting is that which illuminates a room in its entirety, allowing us to move through a space without shadows or dark areas. Normally it is the lighting that is placed on the ceiling of the rooms, above the human eye. However, it can also be seen in wall lights.


  • Focal illumination: is an intense illumination that has the objective of illuminating a concrete point of a room. Normally this type of lighting is combined with general lighting. This combination should seek the perfect balance, avoiding the appearance of shadows and seeking that the light does not dazzle and is completely clear and direct..


  • Ambient lighting: This is the type of lighting aimed at creating an atmosphere. This lighting is not very intense and is usually obtained thanks to regulators. Ambient lighting is achieved by the way the lamps (standing, ceiling or wall) are placed inside the space.


  • Decorative lighting: it is used to highlight some decorative objects or some relevant architectural elements. One of the uses of this lighting can be used to highlight a picture through a wall light, among many other things.



Types of luminaires

As you have seen, there are many types of led lighting, and it was not going to be any less with types of luminaires. By luminaries we mean: “lighting apparatus that distributes, filters or transports the light emitted by a light source, and that includes all the devices necessary for its correct operation”, downlight, recessed luminaires, projectors, bells, led strips, etc.

Depending on the project and its needs, some luminaires or others are chosen, their powers, lumens, colour temperature, degrees of protection and other light characteristics are taken into account, as well as their appearance once installed..

Normally it is advisable to combine different luminaires to achieve the desired lighting, this allows us to have in a space of several environments, depending on the luminaires we use.

Decorate with light

There are five lighting systems in interior decoration: direct, indirect, semi-direct, semi-indirect, and mixed lighting system.

Below we detail what each of these lighting systems consists of:

  • Direct illumination: directs the light towards a specific area. With this system, very intense shadows can be created.
  • Indirect lighting: it directs the light towards the ceiling, so that the light is distributed throughout the room by refraction. With this system we look for a soft light for the environment, a light free of shadows.
  • Iluminación semi-directa: parecido al de la iluminación directa, pero en esta ocasión se usa un difusor que distribuye mejor la iluminación y no crea sombras tan intensas.
  • Semi-indirect lighting: it is the system that sends light to the ceiling without diffuser and to the area to be illuminated with diffuser.
  • Mixed lighting: this is the system that directs 50% of diffuse light towards the ceiling and 50% of diffuse light towards the area to be illuminated. It is a pleasant light to create ‘ambient zones’.


Advantages of LED lighting

As we told you in the article “10 reasons to switch to Led“, the Led has many advantages.

If you have already convinced yourself of all the advantages of LED lighting and are looking for a company that carries out Led lighting projects for any interior or exterior space, please contact us at contact.

Restaurant La Liga Lounge, Doha, Qatar

In Doha, Qatar, the first La Liga Lounge in the world was inaugurated, a leisure venue to enjoy food and football in an unbeatable environment.
Goodwork was responsible for the LED lighting in a project developed and executed by Blueprint and its team of professionals. The objective was to achieve homogeneous illumination and dimmable in all spaces, controlling the Intensity of light needed depending on the event.
As in all projects in which Goodwork participates, first the data of lighting project are collected and the objectives marked by the client are taken into account, all the necessary Dialux and photometric calculations studies are made, and the appropriate product is proposed to achieve it.

In this lighting project two models of Downlight, SENNA and ECO SPA with IP65 were used, ideal for wet areas. Two models of Projectors a rail , our 20W POWER A and POWER J with 20W fins. And above all the effects achieved with three models of the wide range of LED strips available, FLEX STRIP, SUPER BRIGHT and ULTRA.  The needs were as diverse as illuminating the VIP lounge, or illuminating the football field. In all cases a homogeneous illumination was looked for, without excessive brightness or reflections that could bother the clients.

Getting the right Atmosphere is the challenge of any lighting project and is much easier to achieve if done in harmony with the Interior Designers of the spaces to be illuminated. Goodwork’s flexibility in its relationship with its customers and its ability to adapt to all types of LED lighting projects, has made it possible for us to carry out projects all over the world.

Spanish culture in Doha

La Liga Lounge has managed to bring to Doha, Qatar, the culture and food of Spain. In its menu you can find the most typical foods from every corner of the country by the hand of a renowned chef: Juan Ramón Sobero , a cook with more than 14 years experience, who has passed through prestigious restaurants such as ‘Alejandro del Toro’, among others.

Our company, leader in the LED lighting sector, has many years of experience and has carried out LED lighting projects all over the world.

If you are thinking of changing the lighting of your local leisure request budget .
Don’t hesitate, switch to LED with Goodwork!

The use of LED technology in horticulture

When we think of LED technology , we associate it with LED lighting , that is, with efficient lighting found in streets, restaurants, hotels or in our own homes. On the other hand, this technology is advancing every day and its benefits are beginning to be used in other sectors.
A good example of this can be found in the horticulture sector, where in recent years advances have been developed that have integrated the LED technology in the development of crop plants.
One of the most significant projects in this field has been developed by the Russian company Agro-invest, which has promoted the largest LED lighting project horticultural history in its complex of greenhouses located in the city of Lyudinovo, 350 kilometers southwest of Moscow.

More than 120,000 luminaires have been installed in this project, illuminating a greenhouse cultivation area of 25 hectares (an area equivalent to 40 football fields). This will allow product growth throughout the year, allowing both an increase in yields and consequent savings of 50% in energy costs compared to conventional lighting. Through LED technology , the right amount of light is delivered to each plant, exactly when and where the plant needs it, with less radiation.

The advantages of LED lighting in horticulture

The LED lighting generates a great potential in the production at intensive level in greenhouses, for its effect of promoting vegetative growth and for being able to regulate the flowering of many plant species, due to its high efficiency in emitting the different luminous intensities that plants require in their growth process.
The LED lighting in this sector has a great advantage over other types of lighting, such as greater efficiency in the use of energy, a longer useful life, a smaller size and therefore more adaptable to the facilities where these plants are cultivated, greater resistance and a reduction in electricity costs, which until now have been quite high in this type of facilities.
Therefore, the LED lighting offers great advantages to the horticultural sector, so it will become a lighting alternative of great potential in the commercial production of plants and vegetables as a light source by causing significant differences in the management and productivity of crops.

The benefits of public lighting with LED technology

In recent years, Spanish cities and municipalities have been making a strong commitment to a change in energy model, consisting of replacing existing municipal lighting with lighting with LED technology .
A good example of this is Valencia City Council, which over the last two years has been replacing its public lighting in order to benefit from the advantages of this technology. In this sense, the city has developed an action plan focused on both the replacement of public lighting and the change of lighting in administrative buildings and schools by LED lighting .
Specifically, the consistory has replaced a total of 8,849 luminaires, thereby reducing the city’s energy consumption by 17% in the last two years. In economic figures, this figure has materialised in savings of 3.3 million euros, of which 2.3 million come from changing street lighting.

THE ADVANTAGES OF LED TECHNOLOGY IN PUBLIC LIGHTING

> The advantages of LED technology in public lighting.
Although the economic saving in energy consumption is one of the main reasons why municipalities are opting for LED lighting, there are many advantages that this technology offers.
At the environmental level these projects involve a direct and indirect reduction of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere, which contributes to compliance with European regulations and objectives in this area. In addition, the LED lighting allows municipalities to reach a high degree of energy efficiency , as in most cases, is replacing an obsolete traditional lighting that fails to meet the standards established in the regulations on light pollution.
On the other hand, through public lighting with LED technology , municipalities obtain a greater degree of road safety, as well as greater comfort in the use of public roads by citizens. Specifically, LED technology is fundamentally based on a high Chromatic Reproduction Index (CRI) that allows a better perception of the real colours of objects and a greater visibility of road elements.

THE EXPERIENCE OF GOODWORK IN PUBLIC LIGHTING PROJECTS

> The impact of PUBLIC LIGHTING PROJECTS.
From Goodwork, in recent years we have been developing lighting projects public with several municipalities in which we have obtained excellent results. Our commitment to street lighting has led us to develop a large number of products suitable for all types of cities.
Thanks to our continuous research work together with engineers, architects and designers, we have developed patents and unique designs in LED technology of the latest generation. Therefore, we can ensure that our luminaires achieve more efficiency than the average efficiency of any other lamp on the market.

In short, our LED technology presents excellent arguments with a view to their use in the lighting of public spaces, contributing decisively in the creation of safer, more comfortable and sustainable cities.

Tribute in the form of lighting: Wanda Metropolitan Stadium

Last September 6th, Atlético de Madrid opened for the first time the doors of its new home, the Wanda Metropolitano stadium. This event has placed the Madrid club at the forefront in terms of sports facilities, not only for its design and capacity, but also for being the first stadium in the world illuminated entirely with LED lighting .
The club has carried out an ambitious lighting project both inside all its rooms and on the front façade, suspended roof, car parks and accesses, with the aim of using illumination as the new hallmark of the stadium.
A system of 336 projectors has been developed for the turf, located at a height of more than 40 metres, oriented and calibrated in such a way that they do not affect the players’ field of vision and offer the spectators a clear vision of what is happening on the pitch. This system integrates with audiovisual systems and generates advanced lighting effects that provide flicker-free performance, allowing slow motion repetitions of what is happening on the pitch.

Highlights of the lighting project

But undoubtedly, the highlight of this lighting project is in the facade and suspended roof of the stadium. On the façade, 360 state-of-the-art spotlights have been installed, with their own intensity regulator and 1,400 watts of power, through which it is possible to change the appearance of the façade. This system will be integrated with the one installed on the roof, based on a dynamic lighting system capable of projecting more than 16 million colours. These two systems make it possible to create luminous shows capable of reproducing the colours of the local team or to set the mood of the stadium when it hosts events other than football matches.
In addition, an LED curtain 24 metres wide and 6 metres high has been installed on the exterior façade of the stadium, in which all kinds of images and messages for fans can be projected and which accompanies the system installed outside in the creation of a lighting show within the reach of few stadiums in the world.
But the implications of this project are not merely visual. The use of LED technology has reduced the energy consumption of the stadium by 60% compared to the consumption that would have occurred if another type of lighting had been installed.
In this way, Wanda Metropolitano has become one of the most energy-efficient sports stadiums in the world, and is therefore also a benchmark in this respect.

In short, this lighting project is a commitment to LED technology with a quality that turns the matches of the Madrid team into a real show for fans.
