Derichebourg Multiservices has equipped its new headquarters in Créteil near Paris with IoT solutions from Siemens subsidiary Enlighted.

Enlighted’s smart sensors are integrated directly into the LED lights in the new office space, enabling Derichebourg Multiservices to make significant energy savings to meet its own environmental goals, and comply with government regulations requiring companies in France to achieve 40 percent energy savings by 2030.

Derichebourg Multiservices is committed to using energy-saving LED technology in its new headquarters; an architecturally significant building resembling an inverted pyramid, built in 1970 and now upgraded with an environmentally-focused approach.

The top three floors of the building, where most of the open-plan offices are located, are equipped with 1,200 light fixtures with Enlighted IoT sensors from Siemens. Wireless technology meant they could be installed in just six weeks, and the lower floors will also be upgraded in an expansion phase. Data from the sensors is continuously evaluated to monitor and control energy consumption.

The project was implemented with the support of lighting designer Le Studio Led, which integrates Enlighted sensors from Siemens into its B2B lighting solutions, combining financial savings, environmental friendliness and user satisfaction. In the tertiary sector, lighting often accounts for 10 to 15 percent of total energy consumption.

“The data collected by our Enlighted sensors is hugely valuable in improving the energy efficiency of buildings, and also the comfort and productivity of the people who work in them,” said Stefan Schwab, CEO of Enlighted. “We are pleased to be working with both Le Studio Led and Derichebourg Multiservices to develop new use cases, which will allow for the optimization of services for occupants.”

The collected data provides a wealth of information, making it possible to detect changes in environmental conditions and room occupancy, and to respond in real time.
