Lyco’s resident experts on low-energy lighting measure the quickening pulse of building regulation compliance.

Lighting installed in any new build and some building extensions have to include at least 30% low energy lights. Typically, this means light fittings that will only take compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), LEDs or discharge lamps.

Unfortunately, merely fitting low energy lamps with standard bayonet or screw caps will not conform to the regulations. Check the current regulations with your local authority building control department or download a free copy of the Part L building regulation from the government planning portal for full details.
