DE Energy Solutions can offer an innovative and versatile lighting solution which can create the perfect lighting ambience and save the business money. LED lighting products not only reduce energy and maintenance costs due to their low energy consumption and longer lifetime, but also because of new legislation being brought in by the EU from April 2010. The EU will enforce a gradual phase out of the most inefficient industrial lamps as part of its Energy Related Products (ErP) Directive. Consequently, it is essential that you know about the efficient alternatives that will fill the gap in the market by the removal of inefficient products. As lighting accounts for around 19 per cent of global energy consumption, improving the efficiency of lighting across the UK will lead to substantial reductions in energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The good news is that the broad portfolio of efficient lighting from DE Energy solutions is available to the market to achieve legislative compliance while providing optimum lighting conditions for the industrial environment. Significantly the payback period for the initial investment is also coming down so businesses can start to reap the benefits sooner rather than later. Light management systems (LMS) are also available, the installation of an LMS system enables a building to have the best possible lighting conditions while ensuring that the lights are in use only absolutely essential. Switching to an efficient lighting scheme does not mean a compromise on lighting quality as the lighting available provides high luminance and optimum directional lighting. Now that the EU is showing its support for energy efficient lighting solutions it is leading the way to a future of sustainable lighting and the end is in sight for antiquated in efficient technology. With the incentive of obtaining 0% loans from the Carbon Trust to install energy efficient lighting, there is no reason not to make the switch but the key is finding the best solution for the business.
