During the 21st century, reducing energy consumption and cutting costs have been the common priority, says Kjell Yngve Petersen, Head of Research, Atelier KHR Architecture, and previously associate professor at the IT University at Copenhagen.
”In research and development, there has been a primary focus on energy optimization using lighting control to meet the regulations of existing standards. Provided that the lighting design has fulfilled the requirements regarding light levels and glare, everyone’s been happy.”
The development has also been characterized by the general attitude that increased lighting quality requires higher lighting levels, leading to higher energy consumption and thus should become far too expensive.
