The online calculator provides users with a lighting report to aid them in achieving increased efficiency in their building.
‘A report by the Carbon Trust suggests that lighting alone consumes around 20 per cent of all electricity generated in the UK and 75 per cent of all lighting installations are thought to be out of date and unable to meet current design standards,’ said John Robb, marketing director, Eaton. ‘This makes lighting one of the main areas that businesses need to target to reduce energy consumption and in turn cut carbon emissions. Our new energy calculator provides facility managers and specifiers with an essential tool enabling them to pinpoint exactly where and how these savings can be made.’
The online calculator takes users through a short series of questions about their existing lighting installation. Based on these answers, the online tool calculates the amount of energy currently used within the facility and provides the user with an estimated cost savings figure if the business were to switch to a more efficient solution. A full detailed lighting report is also made available to the user.
