LED Lighting Upgrade to The Arc

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Executive considered the report of the Portfolio Holder – Economic Development which sought approval for the installation of energy efficient LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting at the Arc (Phase 1).


Details of the procurement process were set out in the report.


Moved by Councillor Liz Smyth and seconded by Councillor Steve Fritchley

RESOLVED – That The Arc LED lighting installation contract be awarded to PK Group via the Efficiency East Midlands Framework.



The installation of efficient LED lighting was to offer a significant reduction in consumed energy when compared to the existing installation and to improve the building’s overall energy efficiency rating while contributing towards the Council’s pledge to reduce carbon.



In terms of energy efficient measures, there was no alternative option that would have been more cost effective and/or carbon efficient.


Investing in alternative ‘low carbon’ technologies was considered, however as lighting represented a significant element of a building’s consumed energy it was considered to be an essential area in which to introduce ‘low carbon’ technologies.
