Net-Zero is Not Just for New Builds
80% of the buildings that will be occupied in 2050 have already been built – the latest lighting schemes are not exclusively for new build projects. The retrofit of existing luminaires is essential to the progression and enhancement of our existing commercial, industrial and residential buildings – to help achieve net-zero targets in the coming years.
For example, the majority of school buildings in England are more than 40 years old, with 60% of them built before 1976, many of which have not yet received important upgrades. Studies show that many educational buildings can hugely benefit from an lighting system retrofit to help reduce energy costs and improve student wellbeing.
