In connection with the ongoing CO2-debate and the upcoming climate conference in Copenhagen on December 7-18th, 2009 an exciting pilot project at Christiansborg (where the Danish Parliament is situated) is launched, where innovative technologies for energy saving has been installed.
Initially, 7 offices are selected out of a total of approx. 1,500 offices in the 30,000 m2 large "castle", which was built in 1906 - as a third edition of Christiansborg
Castle using the same ground walls as the previous two castles, the first of which is from the 1700’s.
The environment spokesmen for the political parties have set seven offices available for the pilot project to help to determine whether it is the right solutions to use in a larger project. The entire project will cover approx. 400 rooms at Christiansborg.
Since the energy-saving equipment must be connected to existing installations, it is obvious to use wireless technology and components.
- Initially Servodan’s wireless lighting control has been installed in 4 test offices at Christiansborg.
- The requirements for the lighting control was that the control should achieve the functions (the way the light works), which has been in the offices at the beginning. However, there must be an assurance that no unnecessary energy is used. This is ensured by the movement sensor turning off lights automatically (both ceiling and work place) when no movement is detected and the pre-set time delay has expired. The movement sensor also turns off power supply to electric desks, printers, telephones and computer screens - through the power rail
- The whole project will cover approx. 400 offices at Christiansborg.
The following components are initially installed in 4 test-offices at Christiansborg:
Wireless, solar powered movement sensors, type 41-580
Wireless movement sensor PIR, type 41-301
Wireless push-buttons, type 76-922 and 76-923
Wireless receiver, type 70-100
