Carbon Trust Launches Free Guide On Increasing Energy Efficiency Of Display Lighting
August 20, 2008

Retail outlets could be missing out on savings of up to 30 per cent of lighting costs according to the Carbon Trust, with the potential for simple lighting efficiency initiatives to have a dramatic impact on energy bills. To help retail businesses take advantage of these savings, the Carbon Trust has launched a free Display Lighting Technology Guide, offering advice and tips on how retailers can reduce energy costs, while cutting carbon in the process.

The guide, which is particularly relevant for the retail sector, highlights opportunities to reduce energy use through lighting, without losing the visual impact which is so important to driving sales in a retail environment. By implementing no cost and low cost energy saving measures, such as upgrading to energy efficient light bulbs or making use of natural lighting, retailers can not only save money and reduce carbon emissions, but comply with relevant legislation such as Part L of the building regulations.

Hugh Jones, Solutions Director at the Carbon Trust, said: “Retailers are increasingly under pressure to demonstrate their environmental credentials to carbon-conscious customers and staff. Increasing the efficiency of display lighting offers the perfect opportunity to both save money and reduce carbon. The Carbon Trust's technology guide is another tool that can be easily incorporated into a simple energy management programme.”

The Carbon Trust is urging retail outlets to download the publication free at www.carbontrust.co.uk/publications.
