Re-certifying retrofitted lanterns for a new CE mark is a hot industry topic at the moment. You can learn more about the practicalities, implications and legislation behind re-certification in a six page feature in the Lighting Journal's latest issue:
We are delighted to announce that we will, once again, be attending this year's Institution of Lighting Professionals Summit.
The 2019 event will be hosted in sunny Newcastle at the Life Science Centre, from the 12th to 13th of June. We are expecting this to be an exciting show as it will coincide with the publication of the National Street Lighting Survey Report (which will also be covered in June's edition of the Lighting Journal) and we will also be promoting some very exciting company news.
You can find out more about the event and book tickets to attend here.
In November last year we were delighted to receive a Lux Award for Industrial and Transport Lighting Project of the Year, in conjunction with Volvo CE, Motherwell and enModus Smart Building Solutions.
The Lighting Journal has, this month, published the full story of this game-changing project, including more detail on the actual financial and carbon savings achieved via the lighting upgrade:

Carbon Reduction Technology have been invited to present early findings from the National Lighting Survey at the next ILP Premier Members' Forum at the House of Lords on December 3rd.
The survey is currently still ongoing, with local authorities able to contribute their responses until early 2019. However, enough data has been collected to offer preliminary findings and identify early emerging trends.
For more information about the National Street Lighting Survey if you're a local authority representative wishing to take part please contact our research team at email@example.com.
As the results of the National Street Lighting Survey continue to roll in, the Lighting Journal (which will be publishing the results of the survey next year) have released an article discussing the origins of the project and some of the main objectives of the study. The article is by the Institution of Lighting Professional's VP of Highways, Ian Jones, who has worked closely with us on the planning, design and deployment of the nationwide study.
Please click the article to go through to the online edition of the October 2018 Lighting Journal. The article can be found on pages 24 and 25.
We're delighted to have had one of our projects featured in this month's edition of the Lighting Journal. In addition to a Carbon Reduction Technology photograph on the cover, you can read the article on pages 32, 33 and 34. The article details the tremendous and sensitive work done by Cheshire West and Chester Council in successfully marrying efficient new technology into the historical treasure trove of the City of Chester and it's outlying villages.
Although the Journal is packed with great content, the articles on pages 16 and 20 discussing professional development and the changes being implemented by the Engineering Council to CPD are very much worth a read if you're a lighting engineer or manage a team of lighting engineers.

At this year’s ILP Summit, of which we were a proud sponsor, the question on everyone’s lips was ‘Just how far has the UK gone towards converting to LED street lighting?’ and ‘What will the industry look like in a couple of years when we hit our next major milestone in the Paris Agreement?’
As Premier Corporate Members of the Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP) and via our network of contacts within local authority street lighting, we realised that we were well placed to find the answers to these questions. Earlier this month launched a nationwide survey in collaboration with the ILP, reaching out to every local authority in the UK and focussing on urban street lighting. The main objectives of the study are to determine:
The National Street Lighting Survey aims to provide an accurate quantitative snapshot of the current status of local authority lighting, as well as an informed estimate of what the industry will look like by our next major Paris Agreement milestone in 2020.
Working closely with ILP VP Highways Ian Jones, we are also aiming to assess the ongoing opportunities available to lighting engineers and lighting engineering graduates in local government. This is a critical issue for the ILP and YLP; the study should help to provide a better picture of the current scope of the industry.
We hope to finish compiling responses to the study by December this year and aim to publish our findings in early 2019. The study will be collated into a digital report, which will be made freely available for download. We also hope to present our findings next year at the next ILP Summit.
Carbon Reduction Technology are pleased to confirm our attendance at the annual ILP Lightscene event on Tuesday, October 9th. The event will be hosted at Rotherham United Football Club in Rotherham, Sheffield.
You can visit with us and talk to one of our engineers throughout the event at stand 34.
Once again, Carbon Reduction Technology are pleased to be providing sponsorship for the ILP Professional Lighting Summit. The 2018 Summit will take place in Thame, Oxfordshire on the 13th and 14th of June.
As an event sponsor, CRT will be hosting a workshop on both days, discussing the legalities and necessities concerning recertifying a CE mark on retrofitted lantern housings.
CRT will also be exhibiting and attending the event dinner. You be able to find us on stand 12 throughout the event.
Carbon Reduction Technology (CRT) are pleased to announce our elevation to Premier Corporate Membership with the Institution of Lighting Professionals.
CRT Director Alan Robson comments: "We've been actively involved with the ILP for quite a while now, we have a great relationship with them and we regularly attend ILP events, often as sponsors. We felt the time was right to take the next step up the membership ladder.
"In particular, this tier of membership very much fits with the mission statement of our business. We plan to introduce CPD for local authorities within the next 12 months and we're looking to become much more involved in supporting and contributing to the local authority lighting industry. Premier Corporate Membership gives us a great platform to go forward with both of those goals."
