Actis Technologies (Tech), which specialises in audio-visual and integration technology solutions has recently launched integrated Energy Management Systems & Solutions. These solutions will include lighting control, daylight harvesting with high-tech solar adaptive shading solutions, green building systems and LED fixtures. Actis' innovative solutions will accurately measure, analyse and control the energy consumption in modern sustainable buildings. The solutions are aimed at corporate, residential and hospitality sectors.

Abhimanyu Gupta, Director, Actis Technologies, said, "Frequent power shortages and increase in energy costs have dampened the growth of the Indian industry in the last few years and this impact will continue to increase. Actis plans to partner with Indian industry in bringing these solutions to the fore and implement solutions that will bring clearly measurable benefits to businesses and consumers".

Daylight harvesting refers to the optimum use of natural light while using the artificial lighting. Actis plans to decrease the lighting power consumption depending on the sunlight available with the help of technologies like solar adaptive shading systems. The systems will be able to adjust the artificial lighting based on the position and angle of the sun at any given point of the day. The shades reduce glare and solar heat gain in the space, creating a comfortable work environment. It maximises the amount of available daylight entering a space, enhancing the energy saving potential by 15 per cent.

In addition to the sun-based adaptive systems, Actis will also be providing sensor technologies that maximises views as well as available daylight by compensating for cloudy conditions and shadows from neighbouring buildings. This technology works in conjunction with the solar adaptive shading solutions. The sensor detects levels of daylight and overrides the adaptive shading solutions ensuring that shades only close when conditions are appropriate. Most importantly, this process is completely automated and happens without any human intervention.

Actis Tech also offers occupancy sensors, which aid in conserving energy in an unoccupied space by turning off lights resulting into energy savings by 15 per cent (in open office space) up to 80 per cent (in storage areas/closets). The tuning mechanism in the Actis' offering which also helps in mood lighting saves about 20 per cent of energy.

Among all the lighting technologies in India, LED lighting has been considered to be most emerging segment due to its efficiency and long useful life. Actis will be introducing dimmable LED lighting fixtures which are cost-effective option for lighting a home or office space due to its long lifetime and shock resistance as compared to other incandescent light bulbs. These lighting fixtures can be controlled individually in a space with available natural light reducing energy costs by about ten per cent.

Gupta, added, "The solutions will enable consumers to ascertain the exact energy savings month on month. Actis' solutions can integrate various elements in a premise and provide intelligent control over various electrical systems to optimise the use of power with the cumulative savings of 60 per cent based on the above offering."
