Earlier this year, the BEEP team, along with local businesses, paid a visit to Thorn Lighting near Spennymoor, for a  LED lighting workshop hosted by the Energy Saving Trust. The EST wanted to highlight to Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) the possibilities around LED lighting.

The EST’s Premium Light Pro project, funded by Horizon 2020 has now produced a guidance brochure  to assist those planning LED lighting upgrade projects.  The brochure contains advice on design, product selection, choosing a lighting control strategy and best practice examples.  It also includes a comprehensive set of procurement criteria that can be used to assess tenders and select a quality lighting product.
