Emre Kıyak

Abstract


Energy is one of the basic necessities of life and, therefore, power management is extremely important these days. In this study, to reduce the electricity consumption and the use of renewable energy sources are considered to meet the current energy demand. Based on this, the lighting systems of Anadolu Airport terminal building in Eskisehir, Turkey have been analyzed. The lighting calculations and their evaluation meet international standards. Following these calculations, greener lighting approaches have been designed to reduce electricity consumption. The suggested lighting design includes new technology lighting production and shows the advantages of its use. Additionally, information on the installation of solar systems to meet the electricity energy demands of the lighting system has been included. When considering the paper as a whole, it follows from the analyses that energy saving applications to be carried out on the lighting systems are very efficient and the use of solar systems provides significant energy saving as well as contributing to the protection of the environment.
