Thorn Lighting announces Energy Solutions service

Date Announced: 11 Nov 2011

Thorn Lighting, a globally trusted supplier of both outdoor and indoor luminaries and integrated controls, today officially launched an innovative turnkey energy consultation service to help reduce carbon emissions within the lighting industry.

Announced at the Lux Live event in London, Thorn Energy Solutions will provide businesses in the lighting industry with the ability to reduce carbon emissions and lower operating costs so that they can focus on operating their business, profitably.

Rising energy costs are crippling many businesses financially in an already challenging economic climate; this teamed with the use of inefficient old technologies and pressures from stakeholders are forcing many businesses to address energy consumption and re-evaluate their carbon footprint, particularly in relation to lighting.

Starting with a comprehensive energy audit, the Thorn Energy Solutions team can take full ownership of the energy refurbishment offering innovative design strategies, highlighting the financial incentives, funding opportunities and return on investment calculations. The second stage is for a team of trained Thorn Energy Solutions project managers and installers to deliver the full solution, including the commissioning of integrated control systems, supplying the correct product specification and developing an ongoing maintenance strategy.

Accounting for roughly 19 per cent of total world energy use, lighting is a major source of energy consumption but also offers a significant opportunity to reduce energy usage. Between 2010 and 2011, wholesale energy costs rose by a staggering 66.6 per cent and it is widely accepted that energy costs are to continue rising by a further 20 per cent.

With an extensive knowledge base of industry experts and technologically advanced products, Thorn Lighting is the UK & Ireland’s number one lighting manufacture and is perfectly placed to deliver unrivalled commercial low energy solutions that balance the total cost of ownership and commercial viability.

“As the cost of energy continues to rise year-on-year, it’s worth knowing that businesses investing in the latest technology can reduce energy consumption by up to 82 per cent.” Said Nick Clark, Sales Director of Thorn Energy Solutions.

“Thorn Energy Solutions offers organisations the opportunity to assess their entire lighting infrastructure and work more effectively to choose the best technology to reduce energy costs and the total cost of ownership.”
