Abstract

The consumption of electrical energy for lighting installations represents a significant percentage of a building. Large buildings as it can be from offices and shopping centers represent 19% of the energy consumed by lighting. There are many buildings that their consumption of electricity for lighting is particularly important, can even represent 40% of its total energy, this may be due to lack of information or by a mismanagement of maintenance of facilities. Research has shown that at least 40% energy saving potentially be generated with effective strategies for management of lighting applications. Currently there are several alternatives that allow to reach this savings significantly: study of utilization of natural light, incorporation of electronic ballasts, fluorescent replacement conventional fluorescent off-peak, replacement of incandescent fluorescents compact, use of leds, adaptation of schedules and levels of illumination to the strictly necessary, incorporation of presence detectors, centralized network management, home automation, solar energy, etc. Therefore this research paper aims to provide real references that explain the relationship between energy efficiency and maintainability in the area of interior lighting of large building to different scenarios of systems used and their comparison.
