Case study Brussels (Belgium) - Bois de la Cambre

Lighting up changing needs through automation Located near Brussels, Bois de la Cambre is a lush and versatile green space with a road infrastructure that changes depending on the day of the week. The only constant is change On weekdays, these roads are busy with vehicles, while at weekends they become a quiet haven for pedestrians. However, unpredictable weather can cause safety issues, with road closures due to high winds. Traditionally, different control programs have been used for weekdays and weekends, with dimming never falling below 70%. A shift towards efficiency In response, the Schréder EXEDRA LightSync service was installed to control 72 light points, excluding those near pedestrian crossings. It started a lighting revolution by effortlessly adjusting lighting levels . It dimmed from 100% to 50% during off-peak hours and good weather, and instantly returned to 100% brightness when rain threatened safety. Remarkable results The impact has been impressive, with the 72 luminaires managed by Schréder EXEDRA LightSync achieving a remarkable 20% energy saving during the long winter period when street lighting is most active. Compliant and sustainable Notably, the system was fully compliant with the stringent CEN TR13201-1 standards, making Bois de la Cambre a shining example of efficiency and environmental responsibility.
