customers and lighting professionals. TEP uses a two-
year training programme to enable professionals
known as Thorn Energy Partners to create energy
efficient schemes without sacrificing good lighting
In Italy for example, the Polisportiva Saliceta San
Giuliano multi-sport complex turned to its local Thorn
Energy Partner for a solution which would improve
both the energy efficiency and light levels at the
complex. Thorn’s HiPak Pro LED luminaire has con-
sequently reduced energy consumption by 35% and
improved lux levels from 130 to 300.
In March 2014 TEP reached its greatest highlight
yet, following the conclusion of the first six-month
performance league table, 120 projects had been
completed by Thorn Energy partners across the
world. As the winners of the ‘network with the most
projects’ category, the TEP Nord network attended
Light + Building 2014 as VIP guests.
Pascal Verger, a partner from the TEP Nord net-
work said: “(TEP is) an excellent training course. It’s
important to develop systems that provide energy
savings, power consumption management and CO2
emission improvements. This course helps develop
the knowledge required to install the best manage-
ment and equipment systems.”
Despite a reduced stand size, Light+Building 2014
was also a success, attracting over 2000 registered
visitors to the Thorn stand. Feedback was very posi-
tive with visitors excited by Thorn’s new energy effi-
cient luminaires and surprised by how easy the
Smart City Experience is to use. Iain Macrae, Head
of Global Lighting Applications, said: “What a week
– a very busy stand, a massive list of contacts, lots of
interest and a top quality expert team. Visitors were
particularly interested in Contrast 2 LED, R2L2, our
Suncyl solar columns and Urba”.
Looking forward to financial year 14/15, the
Urba LED urban lantern designed by world renowned
architect JMWillmotte will be launched. With distinc-
tive slim linear lines which flow with rounded angles
between the lantern and column, Urba is simple and
elegant while offering flexible lighting design.
