Skylights, large windows, LED lights - some of the sustainable ways ADH/K has used in it's environmentally friendly lighting efforts.
LED lighting technology is installed throughout the ADH/K facility.
LEDs have many advantages over incandescent light sources including lower energy consumption, longer lifetime, improved physical robustness, smaller size, and faster switching.
Ambient lighting is an important aspect of being a sustainable facility. The use of natural light can fulfill the needs for any use of LEDs - skylights, large windows, semi opec garage doors - just to name a few ways in which Knowmad Gallery has made use of ambient light.
Low voltage wiring for lighting is used throughout the gallery space. The benefits of low voltage lighting is numerous but some include: energy efficient, minimal heat conduction, cost effective, longer life span and environmentally friendly.
There is no use of Incandescent bulbs within the Knowmad Gallery. Incandescent bulbs are much less efficient than most other types of electric lighting; incandescent bulbs convert less than 5% of the energy they use into visible light.
