Japan: Lumiotec Provide Interior Illumination for Energy Efficient Buildings


Lumiotec will supply its OLED lighting panels to provide interior illumination of a new demonstration centre for energy efficient buildings in Japan.

The building is being made by Japanese construction conglomerate Taisei.

The lights are reported to be based around Lumiotec P09 OLED panels which were launched in January at Lighting Japan 2014. They will be manufactured by the Okamura Corporation.

Two different versions of the panels will be delivered to provide the primary illumination for an office floor at the Taisei net-zero energy building (ZEBs) centre in Yokohama.

Interior illumination accounts for 20% of energy use in a modern office building and OLEDs are 10 times more energy efficient than conventional bulbs.

Size concerns

By using smaller desk-mounted panels Taisei are attempting to bypass the production limitations that have prevented larger OLED panels being made for conventional overhead architectural lighting.

The OLED lights will also give superior performance to conventional LEDs, which have been judged unsuitable for this application.

Other OLED manufacturers are initially focusing on desk lamp units too, while governments around the world are channelling funds into research projects to evolve technology to allow large-scale fault-free production of OLED lighting panels.
