Energy efficient Outdoor Luminaire LED system exceeds expectations

The City of Port Coquitlam has an ongoing test of a new energy efficient LED Street / Parking light system developed in Taiwan by Advanced Thermal Devices Inc. (ATD) and distributed in North America under an exclusive agreement with EcoCentury Technologies Inc.

ATD LED street lights are currently being installed in a number of cities in Taiwan as part of the national “green strategy”. The lights consistently show a savings of more than 60%; and, the system has a proven longer life span then traditional street light systems.

A system test was conducted by the City of Port Coquitlam (within the Greater Vancouver Regional District) using the LED system in a street lighting test during the period from December, 2008 to April, 2009. The test was monitored and audited by Cobalt Design Management Ltd. (CDML).

CDML confirmed that the LED test system exceeded the performance standards. The LED’s are brighter, more energy efficient, and longer lasting than existing LED technology. Adrian Ryan, P.Eng. of CDML says that “the system was very easy to install and operate. It exceeded expectations.”

“Municipalities are looking for opportunities to go green and procure energy efficient technologies” says Mr. Stephen Bauld an internationally recognized expert and best selling author on public sector purchasing. “The LED light system looks like it will be a very positive way to implement local government green strategies” adds Bauld.

Welcome to viewers of Studio10.tv’s Living Green series

Welcome to viewers of Studio10.tv in Tampa, and we hope you enjoyed Dr. Robertson’s recent interview as part of the Living Green series. The interview covered ideas relating to the conservation of energy through the use of automated processes and it is part of a larger series of interviews that looks at green technologies and one in which EcoCentury’s core technologies are discussed amongst the participants. If you missed “Conserving Through Automation”, you can view it on our website here.

About EcoCentury Technologies Inc.

EcoCentury Technologies develops and brings to market products that increase the energy efficiency of existing commercial and civic properties. Our award-winning Energy Supervisor is a hardware based system that works with existing heating, lighting, and ventilation systems.

Energy Supervisor

EcoCentury’s Energy Supervisor technology can reduce the energy usage of legacy buildings by between 25% and 40%, and an independently audited report for a case study in Maple Ridge, British Columbia confirmed energy savings within that range.

Our installations use readily-available, off the shelf sensors that interface with our hardware to manage autonomously the environments of a building. Energy Supervisor makes adjustments according to specifications set by property managers and it makes these adjustments in real time. The system has controls for heating, ventilation, gases, lighting, and can be installed with a minimal disruption to the activities in the building.

Outdoor Luminaire LED streetlamps

EcoCentury has teamed with Advanced Thermal Devices (ATD) and are developing a North American distribution network for the ATD’s LED lighting technology. ATD’s globally-patented Loop Heat Pipe (LHP) cooling system drastically reduces heat buildup on these sealed units. They are available in various configurations and have excellent brightness, long life-spans, and reduced energy consumption over conventional units.
