Dialight plc to sponsor CABE Sustainable Cities Programme

Applied LED technology specialist, Dialight plc announced today that it is to be the lead sponsor of the 2009-10 Sustainable Cities Programme for the UK’s Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment, CABE.

CABE’s Sustainable Cities Programme cuts through the complexities of the climate change debate to provide expert advice, offer clear priorities for action and describe good practice in sustainable urban design and management. The resource www.sustainablecities.org.uk supports the people whose job it is to make decisions about how to plan, design and manage towns and cities. Dialight’s support enables CABE to extend its role with eight English core cities, working alongside teams of professionals at the cutting edge to support and learn from delivering new initiatives and improvements in the UK’s major urban areas.

Roy Burton, CEO Dialight said, “Dialight is committed to improving the quality of the built environment. We pride ourselves not only on adding value through the excellence of our technology, but also ensuring it is implemented to enhance the quality of the existing urban scene.

“Most traditional lighting solutions are wasteful. Lighting is often overlooked as a major contributor of carbon emissions, but globally it accounts for 20% of electricity consumption. Conversion to LED technology could reduce that by half. That’s a huge saving of CO2.”

Edward Hobson, Head of research at CABE said, “CABE sees climate change not as a threat but as an opportunity: an opportunity to improve the quality of our towns and cities. The challenge facing us is how to identify the best solutions across different disciplines to deliver prosperity, resilience and quality of life for people. We welcome Dialight’s participation in exploring the ways forward for the public and private sectors to deliver this shared ambition.”

Another major endorsement for Dialight’s LED White Strobe Technology

Dialight’s unique all LED L-864/L-865 Flashing Dual (White/Red) Strobe secures its second substantial buying commitment from a major tower operator.

Applied LED lighting technology specialist Dialight Plc, today announced that an agreement has been signed with a second major US telecom tower operator, for its LED white strobe technology. The commitment from the operator is to use Dialight’s unique LED technology for all new towers, all light replacements and repairs. Initial shipments have already commenced and the agreement will continue through at least the end of 2010. The combined volumes of product expected from this and the contract announced in June with another major operator represent only a small percentage of the installed base of towers that could be retrofitted with these Dialight products, illustrating this significant market opportunity.

Currently the only product in its class, Dialight’s LED dual strobe offers more than 10 years life expectancy and avoids the need for dangerous and expensive tower climbs to replace conventional light sources.

Dialight CEO, Roy Burton, comments: “I am delighted to announce yet another significant commitment for our White LED tower products. Once again, this highlights Dialight’s position at the forefront of Solid State Lighting technology, satisfying those opportunities where the intelligent application of LEDs will bring superior value to our customer base.”
