Energy Reduction

DfL advise on energy reduction strategies and assist with the requirements of the CRCEE (Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency) Scheme. Switching off street lighting could lead to increases in accidents and crime. We therefore look to innovative ways of reducing energy consumption on a site by site basis.

We advise on the many options for energy reduction, including variable lighting levels, central management systems, optimal designs and efficient light sources and can write Lighting Policy and Strategy documents.


Our Technical Knowledge can be passed on to our clients in the form of CPD seminars with presentations being tailored to meet the individual needs. We lecture for Professional Institutions and other organisations on diverse topics including obtrusive light and light nuisance; lighting design & lighting fundamentals. As a HERS (Highway Electrical Registration Scheme) registered organisation we can provide other organisations with assessment and registration of staff to National Highways Sector Scheme 8.

Expert Witness

We can also provide expert witness services to the legal profession in any area where specific expertise is required associated to lighting. With expert witness training from Bond Solon and other relevant training as well as court room experience, we are well placed to add value to any case.


Our experienced engineers have a wealth of knowledge and offer advice on all aspects of Lighting Design.
