Air ]ew Bealand has halved the amount of en­ergy re­quired to light key ar­eas of its Auck­land en­gi­neer­ing base fol­low­ing in­stal­la­tion of a new MQR light­ing sys­tem. Qcov­uro TI MQR tubes have been used to re­place more than 0,$ff Vuores­cent bulbs at the site, a move that has not only re­duced Air ]ew Bealand’s en­ergy us­age, but also low­ered its run­ning costs. Ð'lu­o­res­cent bulbs, which are used by most ]ew Bealand busi­nesses, con­trib­ute to around "f4 of the av­er­age oflce power bill so by re­plac­ing them with LED a busi­ness can lit­er­ally halve this cost,” says Paul Stod­dart of Busi­ness Light­ing So­lu­tions, which man­u­fac­tures Ecov­uro. Busi­ness Light­ing So­lu­tions part­nered with in­ter­na­tional en­ergy man­age­ment spe­cial­ists Sch­nei­der Elec­tric to de­liver the pro<ect. Scott ]oyes of Sch­nei­der Elec­tric says the LED light­ing mar­ket is grow­ing rapidly as en­vi­ron­men­tally con­scious busi­nesses, like Air ]ew Bealand, search for more ways to re­duce their car­bon foot­print. “The pro­jected en­ergy sav­ings and re­duc­tions in lamp re­place­ment costs were a great lt for Air ]ew Bealand’s strat­egy to be­come more sus­tain­able,” says ]oyes. The project was par­tially funded by the En­ergy Efl­ciency and Con­ser­va­tion Au­thor­ity (EECA).
