In its nineth year, the 2017 “9th International Exergy, Energy and Environment Symposium (IEEES-9)” , which is a multi-disciplinary international conference, was held in the historical city of Split (Croatia, EU) at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture (FESB), University of Split. The conference once again gathered researchers, scientists and engineers from all countries, disciplines and applications of energy, exergy and environment. The aim of this conference is to promote the exchange of new ideas and techniques in the energy conversion and conservation in order to reach a best “energetic efficiency”.
Kocaeli University Electrical Engineering Faculty Member of Board Ass. Prof. Canan Perdahci and Deniz Yuce, R&D and Marketing Projects Director at LİTPA Lighting were part of the “Energy and Buildings, Energy Efficiency” session of “9th International Exergy, Energy and Environment Symposium (IEEES-9)” speaking about “LED Lighting for Healthcare Facilities”.
Perdahci and Yuce commented: “ Healthcare facilities consume much more energy than most industrial commercial buildings. In this context, they have about twice as much energy consumption and CO2 emissions as a conventional commercial building. Approximately 11% of commercial electricity consumption is used by healthcare facilities. Independent research has shown that the share of lighting in total energy consumption is about 16%, while its share in electricity consumption reaches 44% in healtcare facilities. Sustainability and energy efficiency are becoming more important. It is very important to create a design that will make both the employee and the patient feel comfortable and well in the type of structures that consume energy 24 hours a day. “
