Energy Efficient Lighting - Guide

Energy Efficient Lighting - Guide

Lighting is something that most of us take for granted. How often do we question the amount or quality of that light? Or how much it costs to run and maintain? Our guide sets out to explain the basics of artificial lighting; the equipment, design principles and the effect it has on our work and leisure.

It is intended to inform a wide range of readers about the importance of light; both natural and artificial. In particular, it will help you to understand how to choose artificial lighting equipment that will deliver the most energy efficient solutions without compromising on quality.

A better understanding of good lighting practices helps when considering its direct and indirect costs. A bad lighting scheme is a complete waste of energy and is not sustainable. This guide will explain why and help you to improve the lighting where you work, saving money and carbon.
