Energy


Efficient Essex


Rexel UK help the University of Essex to reduce its energy consumption.


The University of Essex campus in Colchester now has energy efficient lighting and is making cost savings and reducing its energy consumption in lighting thanks to the energy products and services distributor Rexel. By replacing the 150W HQL tubular lamps with 197 Kingfisher LED-IN1BC4.7’s they reduce their carbon footprint by 56 tonnes of CO2 per annum. This energy efficient lighting project


required replacement LEDs for external walkways of the whole University campus in Colchester.


Rexel worked closely with The University of Essex and provided samples from various manufacturers. These were installed in a small area of the campus for testing and comparison purposes. They wanted to see how the products looked and how they performed. Ultimately they selected a cost-effective product. This competitive price enabled a higher number of the street lights to be retrofitted and therefore greater energy savings achieved. Richard Frost, Energy Manager at the University comments “Saving money and


reducing our carbon emissions has clearly been a welcome benefit of installing LED lighting but this is part of a much larger investment programme aimed at enhancing our campuses and the student experience. We are therefore pleased that the LED lighting has reduced light pollution and improved light levels and colour rendering on campus, which is especially important for visually impaired members of our University community.”
