2015-02-10 - Implementing eco-friendly and energy efficient principles, IKEA applies lighting solutions from ABB at its first store in Indonesia

In line with its corporate values to emphasize on the principle of eco-friendly, effective use of energy and resources, IKEA, a leading home furnishings retail company from Sweden, decided to implement lighting solutions from ABB at its first store in Indonesia. The first IKEA store in Indonesia, which is located at Alam Sutera, Serpong - West Java, covers an area of 4.5 ha and a modern building area of 35.000 m2 with 4 floors.

The ABB Building Space® solution enables the company to automatically and remotely control lighting, in each of the rooms in the buildings in a single interface. Several areas in the IKEA store building, such as warehouse and meeting rooms, are equipped with lux sensor and dimmer that smartly and automatically control lighting setting based on the intensity/lumen of sunlight that is emitted to these areas. For example, when the sky is cloudy, lux sensor will automatically set lighting up to make the area brighter; on the other side, it will automatically dim lighting in the area upon detecting high intensity of sunlight. In addition to this light sensor, some parts of the IKEA building are also completed with movement sensor. When no one is present in a room, lighting control system will automatically adjusted to eliminate the wasteful use of light.

Roy Kosasih, Division Manager for LP in Indonesia said, "We are very pleased that ABB's Building Space® solution has been implemented in this landmark project for IKEA in Indonesia. The solution is proven to deliver energy savings of up to 10% through constant and dynamic control of the lighting system. In this way, only the energy that is needed will be used, optimizing the operation and management of facilities on a daily basis."

Mark Magee, IKEA Indonesia General Manager, added that at IKEA, the company is guided by the vision of creating a better everyday life for the many people. “And what is good for people is also good for us in the long run. IKEA aspires to have a positive impact on the environment, which is why by 2020 IKEA aims to be 100% renewable – producing as much renewable energy consumption using renewable sources. IKEA is also making its buildings more efficient, meaning less energy to run them, and ABB Building Space® is an important enabler of this”.

By using this technology that complies with the global standard for smart home and intelligent building control based on ISO/IEC 14543-3 (HBC) certification, ABB offers series of comprehensive products that help in optimizing energy consumption.
