Carbon Reduction Technology were delighted to be involved in the Wear It Pink Breast Cancer Campaign this October, by changing the much loved Eastgate Clock face in Chester pink. The Eastgate clock is the country’s second most photographed clock after Big Ben.
A number of British landmarks shone pink throughout the evening of Friday 21st October to raise awareness and remind the people of the fundraiser, Wear It Pink Day.
Alan Robson, CRT director comments; “We were thrilled to be able to get involved and support such a fantastic national event. The clock really looked spectacular. We were very proud to be a part of this campaign, which raises vital funds for an exceptionally worthy cause.”
Sadly 1 in 8 women in the UK develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast Cancer charity and has raised over 27 million pounds since starting in 2002.

Carbon Reduction Technology Ltd [CRT] is pleased to announce the official launch of a new flagship product: The X-Series Luminaire.
The X-Series is a high performance lantern, currently available as a street light (SLX) and an interior high bay luminaire (HBX). The patented design incorporates state of the art optics with an extruded housing shaped specifically to optimise heat sink capability.
“The X-Series has been purpose built to allow power consumption and bulb quantity to match up with heat sink requirements,” says Alan Robson, CRT Director. “The downward facing fins allow for a much greater cooling capacity and prevent the build-up of debris, which drastically reduces the impact and damage that heat can have on performance, carbon efficiency and the operational lifetime of any high functioning lamp.”
Carbon Reduction Technology are pleased to launch a new range of Backlit Sign and wayfinder retrofit units. The first 200 units have already been installed along a major motorway route in the South-East. The network operations team are experiencing the following results:
Although a major feature for all LED upgrades, a reduction in maintenance is particularly important concerning the fixtures along major traffic routes. Because of the high levels of live traffic moving along any given route, it becomes necessary to close down lanes of traffic in order to make the process safer, which is expensive for the governing council, potentially hazardous for engineers and frustrating for drivers.
Following an exciting move by the government to make environmental upgrades more accessible, businesses and public bodies can now write off 100% of the cost of the upgrade against the year's taxable profits. The Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme aims to encourage businesses to invest in certain energy saving technologies, including high efficiency LED lighting. With this measure in place, there has never been a better time to implement a lighting upgrade.
"The ECA Scheme is a real step forward in making energy efficient technology more accessible," commented CRT Director Alan Robson. "With this additional incentive to invest in a lighting upgrade, businesses are finding it easier than ever to access the massive financial and environmental benefits that energy efficient lighting can offer."
The main benefits of upgrading your lighting:

Halton Borough Council in the North West of England is currently undergoing some cutting-edge LED lighting upgrades with support from Carbon Reduction Technology Ltd. The new carbon efficient installations will have a beneficial impact on residents, Council funds and the environment, offering reduced energy consumption, improved carbon efficiency and light output which meets British and European standards.
The conversion to carbon efficient LED lighting provides an overall reduction in energy usage of 69% across all retrofitted installations. Additionally to the up-front reduction of the cost of energy consumption, the conversion to LED should also deliver a significant reduction to the costly need for maintenance, bulb replacement and servicing.
Heritage lighting is an ideal alternative to more standard street lighting units and as a result is often favoured in areas which a rich cultural heritage.
Malleshwaram is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Bangalore and regarded as the cultural and traditional hub of the city. A well known area, it houses some of the oldest buildings, educational institutions, temples and lakes. When local MLA (Member of Legislative Assembly) Dr Ashwathnarayan decided to upgrade the public lighting system in Malleshwaram, maintaining the traditional look and feel of the streets was critical to the project
Kirklees Council have recently completed the installation of its first energy efficient subway lighting system. The final solution, a retrofit unit fitted into each housing, reduced the energy consumption of the lights by 70%.
The new system was designed by senior lighting engineer and company director William Robson. "The brief was to provide a solution which would lower energy consumption, costs and carbon emissions whilst giving better light distribution within the subway tunnel," commented Robson. "We kept installation costs low by installing retrofit LED units into the old housings and used lens technology to give the subway brighter, more uniform illumination."

Illuminated signs along our highways are essential visual aids for traffic and must stand out clearly. Signs communicating information and warnings which are well lit allow drivers more time to make good judgements.
Carbon Reduction Technology is an approved supplier of illuminated sign lighting retrofits. Our 5w LED lighting trays can be retrofitted into any existing lit sign found on our highways and streets. When compared to traditional illumination, our LED units provide significantly extended life, which reduces the number of times that maintenance is required. This is particularly important in terms of personnel safety due to the common location of a sign at the side or in the middle of the highway.
2013 is set to be a big year for eco lighting as the government aims to encourage businesses and public sector bodies to cut down on their energy consumption through energy efficient lighting upgrades.
The City of Chester is well ahead of the game, setting a shining example of how energy efficiency through eco lighting should be done. Throughout 2012, Chester West and Chester City Council implemented a number of LED lighting upgrades using eco lighting company Carbon Reduction Technology Ltd.
