LASER celebrate LED framework delivering £10m of energy savings

« Back to Blogs


In the past 4 years, LASER customers have installed over £6 million worth of LED lighting through our dedicated LED Lighting framework. These projects are on target to save public bodies around £10 million on their electricity bills as well as reducing maintenance costs and improving light levels. 

We are delighted our framework has made such an impact to the public sector reducing its energy costs and look forward to working on a lot more projects in the future. 

Some examples of the good work achieved by our framework are showcased below:

24 Council offices - including major rollout programmes for London Boroughs of Enfield and Hillingdon.

“Using the LASER framework has enabled the Council to install large LED lighting projects in a number of our corporate buildings, from the initial site surveys and provision of quotes to actual installations, LASER has been very fast and efficient.” 

Andrew Whelan, Carbon Reduction Manager, Enfield Council

 

58 schools – including 12 at one major Academy Trust.

"Using the OJEU compliant LASER framework was a one-stop shop for the Trust. LASER assisted with
our funding application providing us with technical information we needed. They carried out a thorough site survey, sourced the installation team and materials via their framework, and managed the installation from start to finish."

Clive Hammond, Head of Procurement, Academies Enterprise Trust (AET)

19 university buildings – including student halls, education areas, outside lighting and sports halls.

“The way the installation was carried out in building 45 proved to be a success. We are already seeing a 29.5% reduction in energy and are looking forward to achieving more savings as each new installation progresses."

Angus Murchie, Energy Advisor, Cranfield University

Our project at Bottle Alley in Hastings won Outdoor Lighting Project of the Year at the November 2018 Lux Awards. For more information, read our blog post here.

 

76 fire stations – including around 60% of the fire stations in Wales.

Both Mid & West Wales, and South Wales Fire and Rescue utilised LASER’s framework to roll-out LED lighting across almost all of their fire stations. The projects were delivered in phases over two years and have not only saved electricity, but improved light levels and reduced maintenance costs.

Salix

Many of the projects mentioned above have been funded through interest free funding from Salix Finance. Salix provides interest-free Government funding to the public sector to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and lower energy bills. Salix is funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Department for Education, the Welsh Government and the Scottish Government and was established in 2004 as an independent, publicly funded company, dedicated to providing the public sector with loans for energy efficiency projects. We design our projects to meet the Salix project criteria and can write funding applications on behalf of public sector customers if they wish.

What to expect for the future?

We are delighted at the success of the current LASER LED framework and are extremely excited to be launching a newly improved framework at the beginning of 2020 which will include additional benefits and new purchasing options.
