    Enhancing Educational Spaces

    Creating the right environment for learning is essential for any university. The goal to create spaces that are comfortable for students and lecturers and are flexible enough to suit different tutorial needs can be achieved through advanced lighting systems. Lighting can support universities in addressing these common drivers: Enhancing facilities, Standardisation, Maintenance, Improved Control, Sustainability, Carbon and Energy Saving

    Reducing your costs


    Lighting accounts for around 23% of a university's energy costs, but it's difficult to know how much energy is being consumed by area and how to measure it. Installing a lighting management system allows you to see and monitor lighting energy consumption by area and then see how this consumption could be reduced. You can then ascertain if having the lighting on permanently is necessary, or whether presence detection sensors, timed switching, dimming or daylight harvesting strategies could be utilised to effect - to drive down the energy consumption and cost.

    Pay Per Lux scheme helps them to reduce costs



    Universities who can demonstrate that they have a strong sustainability policy forming part of their corporate and social responsibility policy (CSR) can use this to give transparency and visibility to potential investors or students, increase access to research funding , enhance stakeholder relations and credibility and protect and strengthen their identity and brand image. Updating lighting to LED can help address a University's Carbon Reduction Commitment, Energy Performance and Building Directive, Energy Services Directive and BREEAM Rating.

    National Union of Students

Safety is very important for the students to feel comfortable and at home, while improving performance results and increasing a welcoming environment for students and teachers.
