Solar & Alternative Energy

Philips and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory join forces to improve energy efficiency in buildings

Royal Philips Electronics and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL) have announced the signing of an agreement to jointly research new energy-efficiency solutions for buildings. Philips and LBL will work together to develop new technologies for the control of multiple building sub-systems such as lighting and temperature controls, and new building simulation tools for developing and evaluating effective energy control strategies.

Initial research will focus on optimizing the energy efficiency of indoor lighting through advanced integrated wireless lighting control systems that are responsive to people, events and external daylight levels. This will ensure energy is only used when and where needed and will not compromise the comfort of the building's inhabitants.
