Asymetric lighting at a logistics hub in North East England
Earlier this year the MSE team carried out a full exterior LED lighting upgrade at a logistics hub in the North East of England. 
The old sodium SON light units were replaced with asymmetric LED floodlights. These use reflectors to direct light in front of the fixtures rather than the standard symmetrical floodlights which distribute light in all directions. 
The installation will save energy and provides a much more tailored lighting solution for our customers. 
New in-building solar roofing technology
Have you heard of building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) solar panels? 
Products are now available that are designed to seamlessly integrate with the existing structure and design of a building. They are easy to install, making them ideal for your home, public buildings, offices and commercial properties. 
Better wall insulation can save money
The energy price cap is now set at £2,500 from 1st October and further increases are expected in January 2023. 
The government’s plan to promote increased use of renewable energy in our homes by subsidising heat pump installations is being questioned
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) provides grants to encourage installation of low carbon heating systems such as heat pumps. The scheme covers some of the initial cost of installing low carbon heating and is open to domestic and small non-domestic properties in England and Wales. 
Smart home electric vehicle charging
Electric vehicle (EV) sales in the UK are increasing quickly and are already ahead of targets set by the Climate Change Committee. 
It’s expected that there will be 400,000 new EVs in the UK by the end of 2022. 
Although it’s estimated that four out of 10 drivers don’t have access to dedicated off-street parking this still means the majority of new EV owners could charge them at home. 
Good lighting in logistics settings is important
The MSE team has secured the contract for a lighting installation project with a local logistics company. 
We will be completing a full sensor controlled LED refit for their newly-acquired warehouse in Northampton. This will allow them to maximise energy efficiency and it is estimated to give them a return on their investment in just 2.5 years. 
Also included is the installation of a new emergency lighting system suitable for their new racking layout.
