In an effort to reduce energy consumption and maintenance costs, the Royal Household
in Buckingham Palace, London, has installed an LED chandelier and other LED lighting
Bespoke Lighting, a UK-based company that recently merged with LED lighting
specialist LEDtronics, Inc. has undertaken two projects to introduce LED lighting
into Buckingham Palace.
The exterior of the Palace was also lit with LEDs last year – see Philips
lights up Buckingham Palace with LED lighting.
Bespoke and LEDtronics developed a unique method of illuminating chandeliers
using LEDs. The project was undertaken at the request of The Royal Household,
in an effort to reduce energy consumption and maintenance costs. The center
room chandelier was nominated and all 32 twenty-five watt tungsten lamps were
removed, and a low-voltage system controlling 2.8 watt LED lamps.
Energy savings in excess of 80% were realized, and the next re-lamping will
not need to be scheduled until 2020. The next chandelier to be converted will
be fitted with a warmer version of LED lamps, perfectly recreating the color
temperature of tungsten lamps.
" The aesthetics of the respective rooms is a major consideration and consequently
we needed an option on the color of the lamps. Bespoke lighting and LEDtronics
have succeeded in providing the perfect solution for The Royal Household .and
their energy saving strategy has been greatly enhanced”, said Pervaiz
Lodhie, president and founder of LEDtronics and co-owner of Bespoke Lighting
“We are now perfecting an LED candle lamp for The Palace that will again
assist them in their commitment to saving energy”.
Lodhie says that LEDtronics also recently worked jointly with Bespoke in illuminating
the Grand Staircase in Buckingham Palace. "We installed around 32,000 LEDs,
which included a combination of warm-white combined with red, green and blue,
giving a range of several thousand color temperatures. The system is controlled
remotely by radio transmitter.”
