A Lightbulb Moment: How Energy Efficiency Builds Business
Business Aspects Magazine, April 28, 2016
Plenty of businesses are approaching energy efficiency as a business growth opportunity, seeking to increase their competitiveness, grow their customer base and capitalise on new markets, both at home and abroad.
Energy saving is not just about reducing bills, but rather it can be part of a strategic business approach.
Lighting the Way to Energy Efficiency
Lighting can be too easily taken for granted. And ignored. In fact, it is an area where businesses can achieve significant efficiencies. “Energy efficient lighting is about responsiveness and capacity”, Kevin says. “If, for example, you’re lighting an entire warehouse continually with sodium lighting, you’re spending a lot of money on wasted energy”.
Kevin explains that the use of advanced LED lighting and motion-sensors can have an enormous positive impact on energy consumption in large warehouse and factory spaces.
The key to a strategic approach to lighting is not to rely on savings from cheaper hardware and bulbs. Instead, it is about a considered investment in energy-efficient systems that require minimal maintenance and replacement, so instead yield a greater long-term saving.
