Case Study – Initial

Carbon Numbers was tasked with surveying 12 regional facilities and warehouses across the country. The findings from this investigation revealed that lighting loads were the key contributor to high energy spends. Carbon Numbers’ software identified cost-efficient solutions for all 1,568 light fittings within the organisation, saving Initial in excess of 55%. In addition to this, the evaluation made by Carbon Numbers also extended the life cycle of lighting across the facilities by 300%.

Carbon Numbers really does work at the cutting edge of low carbon technology. They made a project which had both geographic and legacy issues, straightforward, and designed a sensible cost effect solution.” – Simon Farmer, Director of Integrated FM at Initial
