AUBELE - self-sufficient LED lighting
Since September of 2010, argus electronic, EAB Rügen and HarzOptics are working on an ambitious research project in close cooperation with Harz University: Develop and create an environmental-friendly, self-sufficient LED lighting system for remote bus stops. The goal of project AUBELE is the realization of an autonomous electrical power supply by combining a hydrogen fuel cell with (optional) solar panels.
Advantages of LED lighting
High energy efficiency
Less light pollution
High CO2 savings
Long life span
Beyond running on a CO2-free energy base, the project aims to create a lighting system "in sync" with the surrounding environment - with almost no negative effects on nocturnal insects and other animals and an only minimal contribution to the growing problem of light pollution. The team hopes that these qualities will make AUBELE a valuable lighting system for use in ecological sensible areas like national parks.
