Lighting Solutions by
Energy Audits and Action Plans for More Efficient and Cost Effective Industrial and Commercial LED Lighting Solutions.
Designed to help save you money, protect the environment and reduce waste.
Reap the Benefits
Energy efficiency solutions can help improve working conditions for employees. Many projects deliver reduced heat from motors and conventional lighting, improved light levels, less glare and/or shadows, and better quality heating. These factors help improve operator conditions
Many companies obtain quotations for energy efficiency projects; however, a large percentage of potential cost savings are never realised. Undertaking energy surveys or obtaining quotations from suppliers can cause confusion when there isn’t a clear understanding of the best route to follow. ecoprojects can help create an Energy Action Plan to ensure a clear vision is laid out, implemented, and reported.
Well targeted energy efficiency projects not only deliver significant cost savings but can even improve cashflow from month one by selecting the right luminaires for your needs.
New LED lighting technologies can deliver significant benefits in industrial and commercial facilities; 60% to 80% savings are common. By reducing electrical energy usage and the need to generate that power, CO2 emissions can be reduced. Indeed, the reduction of energy and waste can have additional environmental and cost benefits such as reduced HVAC usage in temperature controlled buildings.
Grants, Tax Benefits & Financial Agreements
Electrical energy is a continual and increasing cost and is budgeted month on month, year on year. Even in cash rich companies it can be a struggle to make funds available for capital energy efficiency projects. We can help give you ‘month one’ payback and fund energy projects from the savings with no need for CapEx. We can highlight the tax benefits and grants which may be available to help you reduce the payback and increase the benefits of energy efficiency projects.
Reduced Environmental Impact
LED lighting – the environmentally safe option
With the drive towards Net Zero, decarbonising and increased climate awareness, it is increasingly important for industrial and commercial entities along with domestic users to become more environmentally friendly.
Seeking an eco-friendly option, companies are looking for an environmentally friendly light source that can reduce their energy use, costs, and carbon footprint, while attracting an environmentally conscious consumer base.
Traditional lighting such as fluorescent lighting tubes and mercury vapour lights, use mercury internally as part of their construction. When they reach the end of their lifespans, and because of the components used during their manufacture they require special handling.
We can evaluate your existing lighting systems and assist in providing an environmentally friendly solution to help you reduce your costs, lower your emissions, and protect the environment.
Reduce your energy consumption by up to 90% with an LED installation
LED lights are long-lasting, emit less heat and are more energy-efficient than conventional lamps. Typically LED lighting uses up to 90% less energy than incandescent bulbs and can last up to 40 times longer and provide a better quality of light.
LED room lighting is adaptable, versatile, and suitable for many industrial, commercial, or domestic applications. Installing room LED lights is the ideal upgrade for those who wish to save energy, improve light quality, reduce costs, and lower their carbon footprint.
With LEDs producing less waste light than incandescent lighting, replacing existing lighting in an office or workplace with LEDs could see as much as a 60 to 70% improvement in energy savings, perhaps more depending on the type of lights replaced and the LEDs utilised.
We can provide Innovative LED room lighting solutions that will have an immediate and dramatic effect on cutting your energy consumption and bills, reduce maintenance costs, carbon footprint, and improve the quality of your available light.
Two thirds of the existing commercial building stock needs to be refurbished by 2050 if the United Kingdom is to hit its commitments, that translates to 18 million buildings – one building a minute.

Avoid localised heating & poor performance with an LED downlight installation
LED downlights are designed to provide essential lighting in a predominantly downward direction. Suitable for use in industrial and commercial installations such as production facilities, transport hubs, hospitals, schools, garages, warehouses, shops, stadiums, etc.
Traditional high-bay lighting is energy hungry and can produce local heating effects depending on the luminaires installed. In a similar vein, fluorescent tube strip lights are less efficient and durable than their LED counterparts by a considerable margin. Both examples, when compared to an LED alternative fail in functionality and overall cost effectiveness and lack any eco-friendly credentials.
In environments where durability and longevity are required with high resistance to dust and water ingress, these luminaires are ideal for new lighting applications as well as replacing traditional lighting installations.
Talk to us today and find out how much time and money replacement LED downlights could save you whilst protecting the environment.
Portable high power lighting without the heat and the energy bill
LED Floodlights are a broad-beamed, high-intensity artificial light that’s designed to produce a large amount of light for its size and are typically used to illuminate large working areas. LED Floodlights are superior to conventional floodlighting systems, providing energy efficiency and producing more wattage without using more actual power.
One of the drawbacks of conventional floodlights is the heat they can produce, making them difficult to touch and move and impractical should high heat levels be an issue in the workplace. LED floodlights are cooler during operation and are easy to relocate should the need arise.
LED lights are also eco-friendly, containing no toxic elements such as mercury or lead inside making them environmentally friendly and safe.
If you require a reliable, economical, and effective floodlight solution we can help you solve your portable lighting issues with a range of battery powered and mains powered LED Floodlights.
Non-maintained and maintained LED emergency lighting solutions
Emergency lighting is a vital component of any building services installation. Most industrial and commercial properties have a legal requirement to provide emergency lighting so that in the event of a power failure/blackout, sufficient lighting is provided so people can find their way out of a premises whilst avoiding obstacles. LED emergency lighting is the perfect solution.
An LED emergency light can either switch on automatically when there is a power outage (non-maintained emergency light/standby lighting) or is always on as emergency escape lighting (maintained emergency light).
We can help your business ensure that your LED emergency lighting installation meets the legal requirements, provides rapid lighting automatically when the power supply to the lighting fails, and is cost effective and environmentally friendly.
How does it work?
The first step with any prospective customer is an initial meeting to discuss their requirements, understand their organisation better and to undertake an initial free audit of the facility. In the case of large facilities this may be an initial sample area.
Initial Report and Proposal
Following the initial meeting and audit, we will present our findings and in the case of large facilities or organisations, make a proposal for a full site audit and creation of an energy action plan.
Full Site Audit
In the case of large facilities or organisations, we undertake a full site audit to assess the existing lighting provision and its related energy usage. We will create lighting designs to specify replacement LED technologies to best meet the organisation’s requirements in relation to energy usage, lux levels, light quality, reduced maintenance and health and safety requirements.
Having undertaken a full site survey and initial discussions with the stakeholders, we will compile and present a draft report detailing existing energy usage and lighting provision, proposed lighting designs and the associated reduced energy usage, a draft action plan with costs and potential payback and ROI.
Energy Action Plan
Following the presentation and discussions regarding the Draft Report, we will compile a fully costed Energy Action Plan to meet the requirements of the organisation and that when implemented will deliver best value. This will consider all requirements for procurement, implementation, and reporting. This report will highlight any tax benefits, grants and/or funding options which may be available.
Specification And Procurement
Once the Energy Action Plan is agreed, we can assist in procurement and negotiations in delivering the best value owing to our relationships with leading manufacturers and installation contractors. In many cases any costs incurred in engaging ecoprojects are more than offset at this stage, even before energy savings are delivered.
Project Management And Implementation
We have many years of experience in project managing and implementing some of the largest (and smallest) energy efficiency lighting projects undertaken in the UK. This experience includes working within the CDM Health and Safety regulations and compiling risk assessments and method statements (RAMS) for all projects.
Monitoring And Reporting
It is essential in any organisation to prove the savings and benefits delivered by an energy efficiency project. We will assist in the on-going monitoring and reporting of savings achieved and create case studies for either internal or external use by the organisation.
Eco-lighting is a term used to describe a lighting solution that is energy efficient, has less impact on its surroundings during operation, is non-toxic, has a long functional life and is environmentally friendly. There are many benefits gained by switching to an eco-friendly lighting solution, whether they powered by sustainable energy or are energy efficient including.
- + Reducing greenhouse gas emissions created when generating electricity, the longevity of the eco lighting set-up, and reduced manufacturing and material demands overtime.
- + Standard fluorescent lighting isn’t recycled and contains toxic elements like mercury. Eco lighting doesn’t contain toxins and is recyclable, protecting ecosystems from contamination.
- + LED lighting offers the most energy efficiency when compared to traditional bulbs, requiring 90% less energy to emit a bright light, operate longer and have less environmental impact.
When it comes to eco-friendly lighting an LED luminaire is the optimal lighting solution for businesses and domestic customers alike when it comes to an environmentally friendly lighting solution.
Unlike incandescent bulbs and halogen lighting, LEDs consume less energy, contain no toxic elements such as mercury (found in fluorescent light tubes) and are ultimately more efficient.
Eco-friendly LED lighting has a much longer life than incandescent lighting and fluorescent tubes generally have an operational light of 1000 and 8000 hours. In comparison some manufacturers claim that their LED light bulbs have an operational life of 50,000 to 100,000 hours. As you may expect, LED lights are more robust and durable than conventional lighting and have reduced maintenance costs.
Conventional filament bulbs are inefficient, converting electricity into light by heating an element until it emits electromagnetic radiation. Compact fluorescent lamps contain a white, fluorescent sensitive powder coating inside the glass tubing. When electricity is applied, mercury and argon fumes inside the bulb react with the powder to produce invisible UV light. This UV light reacts with the fluorescent coating to produce the white, visible light.
In comparison, LED lights can product virtually no heat, UV rays or radiation and contain no harmful elements. As a result, LED lighting installations consume less energy than traditional methods and can provide superior lighting with eco-friendly credentials.
LED lighting is the ideal modern lighting solution for industrial, domestic, and commercial applications, promoting sustainability and eco-friendliness.
Conventional energy saving bulbs or compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), are inefficient compared to LED variants, but more energy efficient than incandescent light bulbs. Also, the elements contained within your typical fluorescent light ultimately mean they are not environmentally friendly.
Eco-friendly LED lighting has a much longer service life than energy saving CFL options, with manufacturers claiming that their LED light bulbs last for ten of thousands of hours. As you may expect, LED lights are more robust, durable and have greener credentials than their conventional counterparts. This along with reduced operation and maintenance costs means, that despite the initial expense, LED lighting is the more economical option for long term use.
When it comes to identifying the best manufacturer of LED lighting products there is a strong list of contenders populated with the likes of Lena Lighting, Osram, Philips Lighting/Signify, Samsung, Nichia, Panasonic, GE Lighting, Cree, and Eaton, to name just a few.
All these manufacturers have a comprehensive and varied LED Lighting portfolio, with products such as LED Strip Lights, LED Spotlights, LED Bay Lights, Downlights, and of course, domestic LED lighting options.
What they have in common, despite the similarity of high-quality products, is that they are constantly pushing the LED lighting innovation envelope. Eco-projects, a division under Kempston Controls always considers what would be the best product solutions for your LED lighting applications.
Environmentally friendly LED lighting it’s claimed, has a much longer service life than incandescent and fluorescent installations. Certain brands claim that their LED light bulbs have an expected operational life of 50,000 to 100,000 hours.
Along with their exception lifespan, LED Lights don’t require regular replacement and don’t burn out, but instead emit lower output levels over an extended period, continuing to operate for years but not at 100% output.
Traditional incandescent bulbs can potentially provide 750 hours of light to around 2,000 hours for the longer life varieties, CFLs 10,000 to 15,000 hours, although there are some exceptions that have lasted for many years. In comparison there is no contest with the impressive life expectancy of LED Lighting installations.
