Reed M&E Lighting Control

compulsory, minister urged

David Kidney MP, the Minister at the Department of Energy responsible for Energy Innovation and Technology.


Apr 08, 2010 - The Government is being urged to consider compulsory lighting control in all non-domestic buildings to achieve immediate - and significant - cuts in energy consumption and CO₂ emissions.


A minimum of 30 per cent of the energy consumption accounted for by lighting in industrial and commercial buildings could be saved using existing control technology which automatically turns off the lights when space is unoccupied.


Lighting accounts for 15 per cent of the total electricity consumption in non-domestic buildings which represents 14.5 million tons of CO₂ costing £4.8 billion each year.


A minimum of 30 per cent of the energy consumed by non-domestic lighting can be saved by using existing occupancy sensing technology to automatically turn off the lights in unoccupied areas.


Legislation to manage the use of this technology could achieve savings of £1.5 billion and achieve cuts in CO₂ emissions equivalent to 1.8 per cent of the UK's contribution to the European Union's pledge to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 20 per cent by Year 2020.



Reed M&E Lighting Control works with all the major names in controls. We help you to take a project all the way from concept to completion ensuring that the vision is realised fully rather than rushed resulting in a compromise.


Reed M&E Lighting Control can also adapt your existing lighting installation to allow the integration of energy saving (dimmable ballasts, light photosensitive/movement detectors). This will ensure that if an area has no occupancy or has natural light, that your general lighting can be fully energy managed.
