Energy Efficiency


There are a number of different approaches to ensuring that a lighting development is energy efficient. We take a look at how different lighting sectors are upping the anti on energy saving.


Entertainment Focus: Source Four Range Company: ETC


Lighting companies are increasingly focusing on improving sustainability to help create a greener entertainment experience. The new Source Four LED luminaire from ETC, which won the prestigious Award for Sustainability at this year’s PLASA 2012 show in London, performs at 30 to over 40 lumens per watt. Suitable for architectural as well as studio and stage applications, the range comes in three different models – the Lustr+, Tungsten, and Daylight – each using just a fraction of the electricity of its incandescent counterpart. ETC’s CEO Fred Foster says: “The Source LED is another


‘green’ light within our Source Four line. We engineered it to be an addition to the lighting design toolbox and to blend beautifully with the different light sources in today’s ‘hybrid’ lighting rigs”. The new Source Four LED Luminaire combines the features that specifiers are already familiar with from ETC’s conventional Source Four profile spotlight with the added intelligence and patented x7 Color System of ETC’s Selador Desire LED luminaires. Also in the range is the Source Four Dimmer, which was introduced to the industry at this year’s PLASA Show. The product uses Electronic Silent dimming technology, which gives more light for less power by reducing a 230V luminaire to 115V. ETC states that the use of 115V lamps will, on average, increase the lamps output by 23% at any given wattage in a Source Four luminaire, allowing the switch from a 750W lamp to a 575W lamp whilst maintaining or potentially increasing the light output. www.etcconnect.com
