GREEN INTIATIVES

We are at the forefront of energy saving lighting and promote energy efficiency, sustainable designs and control systems. In addition to ensuring our luminaries provide our clients with low energy consumption and carbon emissions, our entire manufacturing process from sourcing local components and product design, right the way through to manufacture, operational costs and ultimate disposal, considers sustainability and how we can cut down on our own carbon footprint.

In the UK alone it is estimated that buildings account for almost 50% of energy consumption and carbon emissions. The introduction of energy efficient lighting and control systems can have many benefits, some of which are hard to quantify.

INTRODUCTION TO LED

When replacing lighting, it can be tempting to opt for luminaires with the lowest capital cost. However, such immediate cost savings can prove to be a false economy when compared with the potential savings over the full lifetime of an LED luminaire. Although LEDs cost more initially, high quality LEDs last longer with an average 50,000 hour lifetime compared to 10,000 hours for a compact fluorescent and 30,000 hours for a linear fluorescent.

LEDs also offer significantly reduced power consumption, especially compared to compact fluorescent, which can mean lower energy bills and a lower environmental impact with fewer CO2 emissions.

We source our LED printed circuit boards (PCBs) from Wrexham and use optimum single bin LEDs with a three MacAdam Ellipse tolerance, and high quality OSRAM and Samsung LEDs with very close intolerance’s.

Amongst many other advantages, our LEDs are virtually maintenance free, easy and safe to install and durable as they contain no glass components. They also offer instant brightness as there is no filament to be warmed and work perfectly with our Manual Intelligent Control system, 1-10V and DALI.

As one of the leading LED lighting manufacturers, Lamps & Lighting Ltd. can provide technical guidance as to whether LED technology is right for your installation.

CARBON OFFSETTING SCHEME

Investing in energy efficient equipment makes sound business and environmental sense and with the affordable and flexible Energy Efficiency Financing scheme brought to you by Carbon Trust Implementation Services and Siemens Financial Services, reducing your energy costs is simple.

Energy Efficiency Financing could help your business save money, reduce energy waste and ultimately become greener. Carbon Trust Implementation Services and Siemens Financial Services have combined forces, and together are offering financing options to all types of businesses seeking to reduce their energy use. New, more efficient equipment, should lower energy bills and with financing payments calculated so that they are offset by anticipated energy savings, the financing option is designed to pay for itself.

The scheme is available to all kinds of businesses and organisations. Financing from Siemens Financial Services can be arranged for amounts as little as £1,000 upwards and, assuming your proposed Energy Efficiency Financing project passes the energy saving assessment by Carbon Trust Implementation Services, there are potentially no upper limits*.

Energy Efficiency Financing is available for a wide variety of projects (assuming they meet Carbon Trust Implementation Services’ energy saving assessment criteria). Projects that may qualify include building technologies, such a pipe insulation and air conditioning, or industrial process technologies, including compressed air, refrigeration or specialist production equipment. Energy Efficiency Financing may also be used to fund combined projects, such as replacing heating and lighting.
