LIGHTBULB MOMENT


As businesses look to run ever more efficiently and support the drive to create a circular economy, CFE Lighting’s Amanda Speight looks at the key 2021 lighting trends that facilities managers can’t afford to ignore.


Historically, lighting has been overlooked by businesses as an area that offers limited cost-savings. But change is afoot.


As companies are being tasked with meeting increasingly challenging, legally binding energy efficiency targets, business leaders and facilities management teams are increasingly waking-up to the innumerable benefits that effective and efficient lighting can deliver.


That’s not to say that there has been a complete epiphany amongst business decision makers, far from it. There are still many who regard lighting as a cost drain that’s too disruptive and expensive to tackle. To them I say this: there has never been a business that I have visited where I have not been able to identify significant cost-savings that they could make, sometimes in the region of 70% of what they are currently paying, simply by modifying their current lighting systems. It should be a no-brainer for businesses of all sizes, and pleasingly we’re seeing more and more switched-on facilities managers embracing this mind-set and upgrading lighting infrastructures accordingly.


So, what are the key lighting trends that forward-thinking facilities managers should be tapping into in 2021?

consumption and I expect to see demand continue to grow strongly in 2021.


“Being part of the Made in Britain community has given us a real


competitive edge, and it’s a trend that I think will only grow, as UK businesses place greater


emphasis than ever before on sourcing quality.”


The market for lighting controls has previously grown at a slower rate than for LED luminaires, but I think that this will change significantly in 2021. Networked lighting controls can reduce LED loads by nearly half, and in 2021 I anticipate these will become much more prevalent as businesses begin to recognise the clear benefits such smart systems offer.
