Solid state lighting LED4ART an Illuminate Eu projects

LED4ART and Illuminate projects are carrying on within the 2011 ICT PSP Work programme, part of theCIP Framework Programme that includes a specific Objective 1.1: “Innovative lighting systems based on Solid State Lighting (SSL)”. According to the objectives of the programme, the two projects will carrying on pilot actions to demonstrate the best use of innovative lighting systems based on SSL for better light quality and control with a substantial reduction in energy consumption.

ILLUMINATE builds up a network of exposition buildings and cities in Europe in order to apply and assess benefit of SSL technology in a wide range of scenarios and promote replication. Two pilots in valuable areas of large EU cities and five pilots in selected exposition buildings aredeveloped taking into account their special needs and aiming to produce large visibility and consensus among citizens and visitors

LED4ART pilot aim to demonstrate and prove that both, a superior light quality and high energy efficiency, can be realized. This goal will be reached by replacing the existing illumination system of the Sistine Chapel by latest LED illumination systems developed especially for art.

LED4ART In this pilot project a consortium of 6 partners from 5 countries plan to demonstrate and prove that both, a superior light quality and high energy efficiency, can be realized. This goal will be reached by replacing the existing illumination system of the Sistine Chapel by latest LED illumination systems developed especially for art.

 


ILLUMINATE project will assess SSL applicability and benefit as in high quality urban areas and in buildings hosting expositions and museums when light quality is un uncompromising requirement and SSL use is still problematic 7 pilots two cities and 5 expò buildings
