Shellharbour City Council, just south of Wollongong in NSW, is providing an excellent example to local businesses and councils around the country on how to reduce their environmental footprint simply by switching to energy-efficient lighting
Gerard Lighting, the lighting arm of Gerard Industries, has just acquired Lighting Australia to become Australia's largest lighting supplier, with a combined annual revenue of almost A$300 million.
Lighting for freeways is an essential part of roadway infrastructures, but is often taken for granted. But compare driving at night on an unlit country highway to a well-lit freeway and the value of street lighting becomes very apparent
The 5610/240/4K8 energy controller is designed to save energy consumed by fluorescent lighting, claiming to save up to 25-30% by operating lights in ‘economy mode’ without sacrificing visibility, while extending the life of the tube, ballast and fitting and reducing its temperature.
Power Saver is a fluorescent lighting control unit that manages power to improve lighting and energy efficiency, claiming to save up to 30% of the operating costs of fluorescent lighting power, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The HS and SL series of low-voltage halogen work lamps are flexible and concentrated light sources providing high-intensity and efficient lighting solutions while maintaining safety through effective heat dissipation and electric leakage isolation.
The Remote Lighting Lifter enables the lowering of luminaires to the ground electrically via wireless remote control where they can be safely maintained. It is designed for use in factories, warehouses, exhibition centres, sports stadiums, railway stations, auditoriums, schools, hotels and more.
The DLE220-S is a 2 x 20 A leading-edge dimmer suitable for control of large lighting loads, including incandescent, low-voltage, neon and selected fluorescent light sources. It complements Dynalite’s multi-channel dimmers by providing extra channels when additional load capacity is required.
The SP High Power LED spotlights are claimed to save 86% on power consumption and greenhouse gas emissions on the halogen lamps they are designed to replace in applications such as indoor illumination, focused reading and task lighting, emergency lighting, concealed accent lighting and billboard illumination.
Thirty years ago, few people knew anything about the dangers of carbon emissions. Today, the need to mitigate global warming by controlling man-made carbon emissions is probably the single most important issue we face as a global community
Emergency and exit lighting seems to be an orphan in the building industry - it's perceived as being neither part of the fire industry nor part of the electrical industry
