We provided simple lighting for the build, using T5 Fluorescent tubes. Why T5 tubes? Well, they are actually quite energy-
We installed 9 x twin 4′ battens with prismatic diffusers giving a good even light through the building. Here is a comparison to using cheaper and less efficient T8 fittings which many electricians will still install as a matter of course:
This equated to a saving of 0.342T of Carbon per year. It might not sound a lot but don’t forget this is a one room building, this same saving translated across an office block would result in a significant reduction of emissions and energy costs.
