Never mind our ordinary everyday lighting demands but living in 21st century Britain brings new power needs and UK lighting requirements from the wider society, on a local and national level. For a long time now our energy needs have not just been about UK lighting. They have been about reducing our carbon emissions on a global level. The UK is a leader in its reductions, and we are all contributing.
UK lighting is of course important and has been for more than a century. Yet, the first household demands for energy were electric ovens and telephones, then swiftly came the radio, televisions, and stereo systems. Then of course were home entertainment systems with VCR’s and larger displays. Then the home computer, mobile phones, and finally the World Wide Web.
Throw into the mix smart device Wi-Fi technology, and that culminates in online demand and live streaming.
