Light Planet commended at Rushlight Awards

04 February 2013

LED specialist Light Planet has been commended in two categories at this year's Rushlight Awards which recognise the leading clean technology developers in the UK and Ireland

Light Planet were commended in both the Energy Reduction Category and in the Environmental Management Group Award.

Light Planet's entry focused on their innovative range of NeoBulb LED lights which are at the forefront of advanced lighting solutions; penetrating new markets and achieving significant energy savings for a wide range of industries. The fixtures are engineered using a unique heat dissipation system that allows them to operate at ultra-high power with high luminous flux, while maintaining low thermal junction temperature.

Reduced consumption, high performance, long life and flexibility of design position the Light Planet NeoBulb range as a directly competitive alternative to traditional high consumption lighting; challenging misconceptions around the suitability of LED retrofits, and accelerating the widespread adoption of energy efficient lighting solutions.

"LED technology represents a quick but significant win in the drive to reduce energy consumption. Our NeoBulb range is an excellent example of the rapid advances seen in this technology in recent years. We are now in a position where we can compete directly with traditional technology whilst offering considerable savings and enhanced performance. We are delighted that these developments have been recognised by the Rushlight Awards", commented Light Planet Managing Director, Simon Leggett.

The Rushlight Awards were announced at a Gala Dinner at the Royal College of Surgeons in London. The evening was attended by some of the leading lights in the sustainability sector and included a keynote address from the Minister of State at the Department of Energy and Climate Change, Greg Barker.
