Sustainable store in the North West uses energy efficient lighting system from retail department store's trusted partner

Marks & Spencer (M&S) is using energy efficient interior lighting controls and back-of-house luminaires from Luxonic Lighting its North West flagship store. 

The retailer’s latest sustainable learning store in Cheshire Oaks, South Wirral, is the most carbon efficient M&S store to date, with a 35% reduction in carbon consumption in comparison with other stores of a similar size.

Specified through its long-term relationship with M&S, Luxonic has provided the back-of-house lighting and control system for the store interior. The incorporation of DALI technology, a protocol for lighting controls and dimming, enables effective energy management, and supports the retailer's efforts to reduce its energy costs. 

Intelligent lighting cuts carbon

Luxonic has provided intelligent luminaires installed throughout the stockrooms, meeting rooms, training rooms and offices at M&S. The luminaires, from Luxonic’s ECODIM range, are fitted with an integral passive infrared PIR sensor and a light level detector for daylight. They can detect presence and can be set to maintain minimum light level while the space is unoccupied. 

The ECODIM luminaires can also be remotely programmed using an infrared handset. The communications room, plant room and staircases at M&S use fluorescent luminaires with energy saving T5 lamps, while the under-canopy lights are Luxonic’s CDC range of circular die-cast aluminium high frequency luminaires with integral dusk-to-dawn photocells. 

Alan Chisholm of Marks and Spencer stated: “We have worked with Luxonic for many years now and are always impressed with the products. They are well designed, high quality luminaires that contribute significantly to our goal of sustainability.”
