Low energy lighting has the potential to make significant energy savings in larger non-domestic buildings. We are therefore including low energy lighting, systems and controls in the non-domestic Green Deal.

For domestic properties it has proved difficult to date to model standard energy saving estimates for lighting systems and controls, and these measures are not therefore included in our modelling tools at present.

My officials will shortly be holding a meeting with representatives from the lighting industry to explore more fully the issues identified with domestic properties. I look forward to considering the outputs of this meeting.
