A major shift is taking place in the lighting sector - driven globally by the need to reduce energy. Lighting currently accounts for 20% of global electricity demand. 

This demand could be halved, at least, through the introduction of Energy Efficient Lighting systems and technologies, supporting the Government's Low Carbon Industrial Strategy.
