Firms aiming to lower their business energy usage are increasingly looking to efficient lighting to achieve this objective, new research reveals.
According to a survey from Osram Sylvania, eight in ten (81 per cent) of the 350 building and lighting professionals questioned said they are prioritising energy efficiency, with almost three-quarters (73 per cent) saying they are already using or plan to use LED lighting in their premises.
The survey also reveals that the majority of respondents do not mind paying extra to achieve efficiency.
Around 76 per cent of people said they consider it important to have lighting that saves money over time, even if it is somewhat costly to purchase and install these measures.
Rick Leaman, chief executive and president of Osram Sylvania, said the survey highlights the "technological transformation" that is occurring within the commercial sector.
"Businesses clearly recognise the energy and performance benefits of LED and solid state lighting," he commented.
"They are becoming early adopters of this technology to improve their commercial spaces and reap the financial benefits of energy efficiency."
