The Isolite Guard is a downlight housing that totally encloses and seals 12 V downlight globe fittings providing a high-temperature fire-resistant barrier to combustible materials in ceilings. This retrofittable enclosure provides safe thermal resistance over the downlight and allows much greater insulation cover and energy loss through ventilated downlights. It also prevents acoustic breakdown allowing (RW30-rated) noise isolation.
A free household drop-off service for fluorescent tubes and compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) has been announced by the ACT Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, John Hargreaves.

The number of ACT households opting for GreenPower has increased by almost 150% over the past two years, with over 10,200 customers (8% of all energy customers) using it.
Street lights around Canberra are being replaced with more energy-efficient globes, with more than 1700 lights replaced to date and a further 5100 lights to be replaced this year.
The Kestrel multipurpose floodlight is designed for maximum light output using 70 or 150 W metal halide lamps. The luminaire delivers asymmetrical light distribution, making it suitable for installation in industrial, commercial, security, safety and general-purpose applications.
The RiCell fuel cell system is a standalone power supply, suitable for applications in transport and environmental technology, power engineering, IT and telecommunications, such as use in tunnels as an emergency back-up generator in case of power supply failures.
