Plastics New Zealand, in collaboration with EECA, present the fifth in a series of energy webinars.

Date: 25 October, 2017 Time 2.00pm - 3.00pm

Venue: Online via webinar

Cost: Free for Plastics NZ members, $50 non-members

Energy audits across the New Zealand Plastics Industry have found that lighting can use 10 - 20% of total site energy use. There are good savings to be made, but sales pitches from lighting companies can be confusing and sometimes even a little misleading.  Find out from an independent expert if changes to your plant lighting really make sense.

The 1-hour webinar will cover:

  • Understanding lux, lumen maintenance, distribution efficiency, and controllability
  • Current lighting technologies and pricing
  • Current lighting control options
  • LEDs vs Fluorescent
  • Should I wait for each of my old lights to fail, or replace them all now?
  • Q & A (15 minutes)


Registration is very quick and easy.  Sit at your desk and enjoy the webinar content, with no need to do anything but listen and watch the slides. 
The beauty of a webinar is also that you can join, or leave, at any stage if something important comes up.
