Peter Elbourne, energy advisor for Keep the Heat in Campaign and previously working for Transition Alness Powerdown project has written this information on low energy lighting for businesses, but a lot would apply at home too.

Transition Alness have a display of various conventional lights matched with their energy saving alternative for people to be able to compare the two for brightness, quality of light etc. We may be able to borrow this for events.

When looking for ways to save electricity, most of the businesses would do well to consider new efficient lighting for their buildings. Mostly the lighting in use today is based on outdated fluorescent or high intensity discharge lighting; these are inefficient in terms of electricity used and provide poor quality light.

I am happy to know that you are giving emphasis on the usage of low energy lighting.

We didn't get funding to continue this project but there is still some useful information and case studies on the website. I have the Hilton Church figures for the last year and the carbon reductions are about what was predicted (18 tonnes); 40% reduction in heating and about 10,000kWh electricity generated from 2 sets of solar panels, though larger one were only working on half for part of the summer so we should see even greater benefit next year.
