Title Renewable Energy Efficient Solar Lighting System Design for Buildings in UAE
 
Creator Zaidy, Mubina Irfan
 
Description Over the past few years, the electricityconsumption in the United Arab Emirates(UAE) hasbeyonddoubledaccording to a study done by the managementconsultancy and strategy and it is still at a constant rise.Lighting accounts for a major part of this consumption. Hencethere arises the need to reduce and conserve this energy for thesake of the environment and in turn our future generations.This paper aims at implementing the use of solar energy forelectric energy generation for lighting systems in commercialand residential buildings. It also focuses on reducing energyconsumptions by making use of LED lighting technology,daylighting and suitable lighting controls. Unlike traditionalfossil fuel power generation by coal, oil or gas, energygenerated through solar power is Renewable, clean andenvironment friendly and has no harmful gasemissions.Therefore, a shift to solar power could make a greatdifference in UAE where it is abundantly available all yearround. An experimental prototype of a 20 Watt Solar poweredLighting system using LED’s, a solar charge controller and alight detector sensor is constructed to demonstrate the workingof such anenergy efficient lighting system on a small scale.Using a light designing software daylight harvesting, LED lightplanning and energy efficient building architecture has beendemonstratedand the results have shown good satisfactoryperformance of the overall system design.
