There are many considerations when installing LED light systems and this can be daunting for procurers. Selecting quality products, a competent installer, using daylight to your advantage and optimal design are just some of the considerations.   Premium Light Pro has produced a comprehensive guide for installation of indoor lighting in the non-domestic sector.  At the heart of this lies the project's Procurement Criteria, which serves as a benchmark of high quality.

A Smart City is a city where life has become very easy.   Bus tickets can be bought directly from an App while private vehicles are replaced by cars and bikes shared by the public. Buses and cars don’t run on gas or other conventional fuels but are powered by electricity. Charging infrastructures are disseminated all around the city, so there is no need to go to the gas tank anymore! Consequences of all these improvements in mobility are the reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions and the reduction of the door-to-door journey time.

This paper presents the RELaTED decentralized Ultra-Low Temperature DH network scheme, and its adaptation to several operational schemes such as new and existing DH networks, with different levels of complexity. Transitory phases in the conversion process are discussed. District heating (DH) systems are one of the most energy efficient heating systems in urban environments, with proven reliability within many decades already.

The quality assurance in the photovoltaic industry is yet in its infancy, requiring both underpinning science and trained personnel to reduce costs of energy. An unmet industrial requirement is an accelerated, and operating environment specific service life time and energy yield assessment. SOLAR-TRAIN qualified selected early stage researchers in the field of PV durability as part of a highly innovative, multi-disciplinary project meeting industry requirements.

Are you planning to renovate a building? Would you like to combine energy efficiency improvements with architectural additions? The EU-funded ABRACADABRA project has developed 3 decision support tools for this purpose which you can test for free. Case study buildings should either have planned energy renovations or have already undergone renovations. Tools and analytical methods developed by the project team will be applied to each case study building, providing valuable technical, financial and regulatory outcomes to aid the decision-making process.

People are increasingly testing smart control systems to curb energy use, while maximising the amount of renewables employed in the process   When temperatures are low, the temptation to take long, scalding showers and turn electric heaters to the maximum is high. And not knowing how much energy we spend, when we unthinkingly do these activities, makes it difficult for us to decrease our consumption.
