Lighting savings


It is estimated that we use 20% of the energy for lighting.

It can make up to 40% of a building’s electricity bill. You can considerably cut your costs by changing your lighting to a more efficient method.

With rapidly advancing technology, some “quick wins” such as LED lighting could be readily available for your business. More and more companies are replacing standard filament, halogen and fluorescent strip lights with LED.

LED or not LED?

Global sales of LED lights are expected to reach around $30.5bn (£23bn) in 2018, contributing to roughly 36% of the total value of global lighting sales.

After the initial set up costs of LED lighting, which might need one to two years to recoup the return on investment, there will be continued savings even beyond the payback period. LED lighting is more energy efficient, cost-effective, durable and attractive than existing methods. LED lights retain up to 80% of their efficiency even after eight years so the savings can be quite substantial.

Costs of LED lighting

According to Philips LUMEC7, LED lights have an operating lifespan of some 70,000 hours, which is eight to ten times longer than that of standard lamps.

Industrial Lighting Savings

LED benefits

When it comes to LED, it is best to invest in quality, though it comes with a higher price. We can arrange a lighting specialist to consult you on the optimised solution. Inadequately implemented LED lighting will not necessarily lead to savings on its own.

Motion sensors and daylight-dependent regulation are economical ways to complement low cost, efficient lighting, and to maximise savings even more.

LED lights do not contain mercury, other harmful gases, or emit any harmful UV rays. You can gain significant energy, cost and CO2 savings while improving the overall working environment, comfort and productivity.

LED lights are eco-friendlier: A 13w LED light emits 68% less carbon dioxide compared to a standard 40w incandescent bulb.

What can LED actually do?

LED lights can produce light in different colours and, unlike the common white fluorescent tubes in many offices, LEDs do so without a great deal of glare.

LEDs pass electrons through a semiconductor and consequently have no filament to wear out (which also means they don’t get as hot). Ordinary incandescent bulbs, on the other hand, emit light as a current is passed through the metal within them.

LEDs can withstand a greater intensity of vibration and shock than standard lights and can even be exposed to rain and snow, since they have no filaments. They can be readily turned on and off without diminishing their lifespan.
