Zumtobel Lighting-as-a-Service Deal Guarantees Light Levels and Energy Savings

Zumtobel Group’s new services operation has announced its first LaaS installation, at an Austrian plastics factory that is spending nothing upfront on new LED lighting but is instead paying a monthly fee for guaranteed lighting levels and energy reduction. The deployment at the Faigle Kunststoffe GmbH facilities is the responsibility of NOW, Zumtobel’s two-year-old lighting-as-a-service (LaaS) unit that the company melded into the Zumtobel Group Services (ZGS) division it formed in March. Dornbirn, Austria-based Zumtobel created ZGS in an effort to ratchet up its push to connect lighting to the Internet, part of the Internet of Things (IoT) movement that is gripping the lighting industry. IoT lighting environments use chips, sensors, and network connections to support richer than normal lighting controls, facilitating features such as color temperature adjustments, and allowing lights to respond to a wide array of inputs. At the same time, the lighting infrastructure can collect data about building operations such as occupancy, helping facility managers better know when to turn heat on or off, how to reassign rooms and floors, and so forth. http://www.ledsmagazine.com/

    This option has been available in the US for the past 4 years that I know of, and I am surprised that it has not been more widely used. We are seeing a wide variety of businesses, from quick-serve restaurants to automobile dealerships benefit from the metered shared savings model, which we call Efficiency-as-a-Service Initiative or “EASi” program.
