The Torre Sevilla real estate complex, one of Andalusia’s major benchmarks for sustainable architecture and commitment to caring for the environment, continues to deploy solutions for its sustainable management with new energy-saving measures.

The latest action in this area has been to replace the 1,210 existing luminaires on the first and second floors of the underground car park with others using LED technology. With this measure, the entire car park is now equipped with this more efficient technology.

With this replacement, the power of the new lighting equipment has been reduced by 46 W per luminaire, going from the initial 72 W to 26 W. Thus, in this new scenario, the estimated consumption amounts to 211,285 kWh/year, and carbon dioxide emissions are 31.7 t of CO2 per year.

Thanks to this measure, Torre Sevilla will obtain energy savings of 373,813 kWh, equivalent to 32.15 tonnes of oil (toe) of final energy and 71.4 toe of primary energy, and will avoid the emission of 55.61 t/year of CO2 into the atmosphere, equivalent to the emissions absorbed by 340 trees.

This action has already been recognised within the eCity+ programme of the eCitySevilla project, which recognises those entities that implement actions related to the global objectives pursued by the initiative. In this sense, this measure is part of those corresponding to the Building working group, led by the Andalusian Energy Agency and which, together with other actions already implemented, currently place Puerto Triana at the top of the ranking.
