LIF Announces EMILAS Winners

LIF Announces EMILAS Winners

May 2009 saw one of the most significant highlights in the lighting industry’s calendar - as well as being the Lighting Industry Federation’s AGM/Annual Luncheon - the winners of the Federation’s new Energy Management and Innovation in Lighting Award Scheme (EMILAS) were announced.

“We were delighted with the number of entries received – and their quality – for the lighting award scheme, which focuses on the upgrading of existing installations to improve energy-efficiency and encourages owners/users to upgrade their existing lighting installations,” commented LIF President Peter Denny.

“A prime objective of EMILAS is to give recognition to lighting schemes showing proven energy savings with a minimum 20% improvement over previously installed schemes."

“The response far exceeded expectations and reflects the dramatic impact of evolving energy efficiency lighting schemes across a diverse range of sectors and applications."

“Great inroads are being made by The Lighting Industry with new technologies available that bring significant benefits in contributing towards building a low carbon economy – which can only be achieved by the refurbishment of existing buildings with modern lighting schemes.”
