Energy Efficient Luminaires were introduced into the domestic Green Deal Assessment Software on 7 December 2014 allowing an assessor to recommend low energy lighting to consumers to improve the overall efficiency of their home. This means that Energy Efficient Luminaires can appear on a Green Deal Advice Report, which can be used to take forward a Green Deal Finance Plan. Energy Efficient Luminaires are complete light fittings which must be fixed to the dwelling and that can only take low energy lamps (e.g. such as LEDs).
