Energy efficient lighting
Lighting is a substantial energy user at many business sites, and can make up to 50 per cent of an energy bill.
Energy use associated with lighting systems can be reduced by up to 82 per cent if energy efficient lighting practices are adopted.
The Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) will help you understand your lighting system and realise savings by:
partnering with you to deliver a specialist energy audit that provides the business case for action
providing you information through case studies, seminars and tours of sites that have implemented efficiency changes.
Calculight helps you make an informed decision about energy efficient lighting for your site.
helps you to identify appropriate, cost-effective energy efficient lighting upgrades for common types of lighting
shows you a number of options, letting you make the best choice for your business
compares lighting upgrade options and lets you sort results by annual energy savings, capital costs and payback periods
gives you generic technical specifications, so that you can confidently approach lighting suppliers and contractors.
Energy Saver Energy Efficient Lighting Technology Report
As lighting technologies are changing fast, OEH has developed an Energy Efficient Lighting Technology Report to help you better understand this changing landscape.
This technology report should be read by facilities managers, plant operators, site engineers, procurement managers and operations and financial management at any facility or organisation with significant lighting in place.
It outlines energy saving solutions to increase the efficiency of common types of lighting. Annual energy savings, capital costs and payback periods have been modelled and examples provided.
The report will help you understand the potential for energy efficient lighting at your site and provides guidance for making the most cost-effective energy efficient technology upgrades. Generic technical specifications are provided which will allow you to confidently approach lighting suppliers and contractors.
