Registration at 9:15, workshop 9:30 – 4:30 with lunch and coffee breaks

Upgrading lighting in non-domestic premises offers a huge energy and cost saving opportunity for both individual businesses and our national energy demand as a whole.  With the commercial sector accounting for 70% of lighting energy demand, it’s estimated that around 14 billion kWh could be saved through low-energy lighting – around the same amount produced by a nuclear power station. And when polled by The Grocer as part of the 2015 ‘Switch the Lights’ campaign, 85% of businesses who had already made the jump to LED reported that this had caused “highly beneficial” or “beneficial” savings to maintenance budgets.

This one day training session, aimed at the SME sector, will be delivered by the Lighting Industry Academy and offers support for the implementation of indoor lighting systems,  enabling attendees to understand, specify and procure high quality lighting for their organisation.

The training will target design, technology and funding issues and address the major barriers and challenges for improving lighting, with a focus on LED solutions. The training day will also feature a tour of the LIA’s testing laboratory to enable attendees to understand some of the testing that lighting products undergo.

Who should attend?

This training course is suitable for a wide audience, including staff with no previous knowledge or experience with lighting. In particular it will be useful installers and designers working in this capacity, as well as SME owners/decision makers.
