  3. 3. 10 reasons why we must follow the French From 1 July 2013 they’re going to curb lighting at night – by law Sacre bleu! Won’t that cause lots of problems?
  4. 4. 10 reasons why we must follow the French From 1 July 2013 they’re going to curb lighting at night – by law Sacre bleu! Won’t that cause lots of problems? Not according to these ponderings I’ve borrowed from Ray Molony of LUX magazine – in fact it’ll be good for the lighting industry
  5. 5. 10 reasons why we must follow the French Dialight 1 It’ll save energy 2TWh per year is the government’s estimate - that’s equivalent to 750,000 households and 250,000 tons of CO2. The Syndicat de L’Éclairage believes the government’s savings measure of 2TWh a year for the night ban is too optimistic. It calculates savings of 0.5TWh and with lighting controls used day and night could save 16TWh.5
  6. 6. 10 reasons why we must follow the French Dialight 2 It’ll encourage good behaviour If there’s a bit of a stick to beat those who leave the lights on, then of course behaviour will start to improve.6
  7. 7. 10 reasons why we must follow the French Dialight 3 People will see lighting as a resource The law says ‘Conserve it, or you’ll get clobbered’. Now there’s motivation to do the right thing! Power to the big stick to get things moving.7
  8. 8. 10 reasons why we must follow the French Dialight 4 Lighting controls will be ‘the new black’ Much easier to have the lights control themselves to meet legal requirements than expect employees to switch off responsibly. And of course LED lighting is perfectly suited for such controls …8
  9. 9. 10 reasons why we must follow the French Dialight 5 Rising electricity prices aren’t enough We’re still wasting energy, even as prices continue to rise. This law will stop businesses wasting money and energy.9
  10. 10. 10 reasons why we must follow the French Dialight 6 Starry, starry nights Forgotten what they look like? Time for a romantic trip to France to see a proper night sky from 1 July 2013. Imagine what it would be like where you live.10
  11. 11. 10 reasons why we must follow the French Dialight 7 It won’t affect crime rates No conclusive evidence from anywhere in the world to show that urban lighting cuts crime, just the fear of crime. For more on this topic, read #Gordon Routledge in LUX magazine.11
  12. 12. 10 reasons why we must follow the French Dialight 8 Incentives aren’t working Carrots aren’t working in UK and France, so it’s time for the stick to make sure that we switch them off.12
  13. 13. 10 reasons why we must follow the French Dialight 9 No enforcement issues How easy can it be to spot the offenders???13
  14. 14. 10 reasons why we must follow the French Dialight 10 It’s going to happen anyway Why wait? Let’s get on and do it now in the UK. It makes so much sense, n’est-ce pas? Allez!14
