 In LED Lighting

In Rome’s Vatican City, renaissance church Papal Basilica of St. Peter has completed an energy efficiency program to reduce costs.

Some 100,000 LEDs have been installed. Building operators are now equipped with an intelligent lighting control system to manage energy use within the 22,000 square meter building.

The digital control system allows specific lighting scenarios to be selected, created or modified. For instance, operators can dim and brighten the lights in line with an event being conducted or time of the day to avoid excess energy being consumed.

The project is expected to reduce energy use and costs by 90%.
