Lighting, Energy and the Environment

Energy use and our environment are inexorably linked. No matter how hard we try, using innovative efficient new luminaire designs and controls, an installation will always have a carbon footprint. But, how much energy is used in the production of luminaires adding to that carbon footprint? One light can indirectly produce one tonne of CO2 per annum from its energy […]

Energy Saving with VSDs in a Digital Age

Variable speed drives are celebrating their 50th birthday this year. While the fundamental principle of a VSD remains the same – to regulate the speed of an AC induction motor – unsurprisingly the technology has moved on. So much so that practically every job function with an interest in the energy bill of a company can benefit from a VSD. […]
