Switch on the SavingsTM

Advanced Power & Lighting Ltd is an award winning proven turnkey provider of advanced lighting and control solutions for retail, commercial and industrial buildings and infrastructure both in the UK and overseas.

Most projects are turnkey retrofit lighting solutions or supply only for new builds working direct for the building owner, tenant, main contractor or an FM company. Typically a lighting retrofit project ROI is less than 3 years and it’s the one area in a building where substantial carbon savings can be made. All products meet with the ECA criteria with funding options and insurance backed policies available to guarantee energy and cash savings.

We achieve our customer’s cost and environmental targets, with a typical project process including:


Site Survey – Review of existing lighting fittings and systems


LED Investment Model – Financial payback model with control options


Environmental Targets – Advice on energy, CO2 savings, recycling and waste reduction


Lighting Design – Provide solutions based on light type, colour and arrangement


Product Supply – Whether lamp or fitting, we have a vast range with a bespoke service available


Advanced Controls – Daylight and motion detection combined with DALI, DSI and NXP dimming and timers conserves energy and offers occupancy data for improved management


MES integration – Interface protocols available for BMS or other site equipment interface


Installation Service – We offer full lamp and / or fitting replacement service


Maintenance – Can be as part of coordinated response or as scheduled replacement


Funding – Capital funding packages available for projects, products or life cycle are all available



There are many suppliers providing LED lighting from all parts of the globe. A quick check list from our experience is:


1. Ensure before and after light levels are recorded, particularly where a health and safety incident could occur


2. If lighting levels are reduced, then ensure these meet the minimum legislative requirements for the application


3. We recommend that small trials are always undertaken


4. Are the lights and fittings CE marked to include the country of origin?


5. Is the CE a self-declaration or preferably from an independent 3rd party test house?


6. Review the warranty small print – are their limits on hours lit per day and on/off switching and do these have to be monitored for a valid claim and is there a minimum failure rate before the warranty kicks in?


7. Who is responsible for the design of the emergency lighting?


8. What test and certification is provided on completion of an installation?



APL offers funded solutions including lease, paid from savings and paid through utility bills with competitive rates over various terms.


These can be backed by third party insurance policies to include:


1. Material Cover - provide new to old equipment and material replacements in case of failure not covered by the manufacturer


2. Business Protection – covers loss of revenue and increased expenditure for energy saving and renewable energy generation contracts


3. Asset Protection – covers the shortfall in energy generation due to design issues or non-performance not related to damage.  This does require a project audit




The design life of LED is taken as the time to 70% of the original light output, not a total failure. Typically traditional lighting and lamps are around 15,000 hours, with our LED lighting and lamps typically 40,000 to 80,000 hours depending on the lamp and application!

APL and its global manufacturers stand behind the products with a comprehensive warranty with a range of aftersales services available. Paid from savings funded solutions means the risk is with APL and our partner funder.


5 to 9 year funded schemes means that the customer saves from day one with no liability for the provision of lighting and its maintenance during the term and APL and the funder are simply paid from the energy and lamp replacement cash savings –
no risk is peace of mind.
