Energy Efficient & Effective Lighting Systems

Course Overview

Artificial lighting is a fundamental part of our expectations for living, working and travelling on a daily basis. It is something that is taken for granted and for the most part lighting only becomes an issue when we are left in darkness. The Energy Efficient & Effective Lighting Programme will endeavour to give the delegate a better understanding of artificial lighting and thereby empower them to identify opportunities where lighting schemes may be upgraded to provide a more energy efficient and effective solution in their workplace.
