Is retrofit lighting the key to energy saving?
A leading independent lighting manufacturer says retrofitting outdated lighting systems will be key to improving energy use as businesses face increasing operational costs.
The comments come at a time when energy prices are predicted to remain high for the next 18 months to two years. It believes that with the emphasis on innovative technologies, many have forgotten the impact that simple building system upgrades can have. This is especially true when it comes to reducing energy use and operational costs.
By replacing outdated lighting with modern LED systems, buildings can be made more efficient. Coupled with intelligent control systems, this can bring about savings of between 60% to 80%.
Electricity for lighting makes for approximately 15% of global power consumption and 5% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. Upgrades can also reduce carbon emissions as part of wider sustainability efforts.
Lighting is a huge source of energy consumption and small changes can make a big difference. Too often building owners and operators are forgetting the simple steps that can play a huge role in reaching ambitious climate targets.
By replacing outdated lighting with modern LED systems can effectively reduces energy use and carbon emissions. With an increasing need for building systems to perform both effectively and cost-effectively, upgrades are easy to do and should be seen as a key part of any energy saving and decarbonisation plan.
