There are many considerations when installing LED light systems and this can be daunting for procurers. Selecting quality products, a competent installer, using daylight to your advantage and optimal design are just some of the considerations.
Premium Light Pro has produced a comprehensive guide for installation of indoor lighting in the non-domestic sector. At the heart of this lies the project's Procurement Criteria, which serves as a benchmark of high quality.

Are you planning to renovate a building? Would you like to combine energy efficiency improvements with architectural additions? The EU-funded ABRACADABRA project has developed 3 decision support tools for this purpose which you can test for free.
Case study buildings should either have planned energy renovations or have already undergone renovations. Tools and analytical methods developed by the project team will be applied to each case study building, providing valuable technical, financial and regulatory outcomes to aid the decision-making process.

The FP7 funded TRIBUTE (Take the energy bill back to the promised building performance) is a large-scale integrating project aimed at minimizing the gap between computed and measured energy performances through the improvement of the predictive capability of a state-of-the-art commercial Building Energy Performance Simulation (BEPS). For existing buildings, measurement and verification techniques will be developed and deployed to connect the BEPS model in real time to the pivotal wireless sensing and control systems of a monitored building.
