UK Energy Efficiency & Industrial Lighting

What role does LED Lighting play in maximising industrial efficiency savings?

Energy efficiency is fast becoming an important area for industrial strategy as most companies now have strategies to get the most out of energy efficiency. Those who fail to devise effective efficiency strategies are .

This blog summarises findings from recent news articles highlighting the importance of LED industrial lighting for energy saving strategies.

National Energy Efficiency

The UK recently saw its total energy consumption fall to levels last seen in 1984 (5 megawatt hours per capita) according to the BBC. This is in sharp contrast to 2005 when electricity production peaked. It’s thanks to energy efficiency product standards brought in, reducing the amount of energy we use as well as our carbon footprints. A growing number of businesses are now realising the benefits of creating energy efficiency strategies. Re-fitting premises with low power LED lighting is a key part of industrial energy efficiency strategies. This enables companies who invest in energy efficient LED lighting to reduce their energy bills, leaving more room for spending elsewhere.

 

Energy Efficiency in the NHS

LED lighting has a key role to play in maximising energy in the National Health Service according to edie.net. The government aims to reduce building energy use by 50% by the year 2030. Therefore, a “widespread” programme to install energy efficient systems, within the coming year, will go some way to meeting the government’s target. LED lighting will be a major piece of the jigsaw in terms of maximising the NHS’ energy efficiency as it can be as much as 80% more energy efficient than other lighting sources.

 

LED Lighting and Warehouse Efficiency

Energy efficient warehouse lighting is highly important in 2019 according to the Lancashire Business Review. They identify that energy efficiency savings can be made by switching from older fluorescent lighting to LED lighting. In addition to energy savings you save on replacements and maintenance thanks to LED lighting’s superior durability. Sensors can also help warehouse facilities make further efficiency savings by operating lighting only when it’s required. These are perfect for warehouses where some areas may go unused throughout the day. Putting these elements together, warehouses and other industrial sites can make large savings.

 

Conclusions

To summarise, LED industrial lighting plays a major role in delivering robust energy efficiency strategies. This is thanks to energy savings of up to 80% in comparison to other forms of lighting. Their durability also reduces the need for replacements whilst optional sensors enable further savings for facilities with low occupancy areas.
