    The Judging criteria for Energy Using Products

    The Judges considered any product that improves building performance and saves energy and carbon, and are judging based on:

    • Research, testing, development
    • Innovation in design, technology and/or application
    • Improvement over existing products in terms of performance, energy or resource (e.g. water) efficiency and carbon saving
    • Manufacturing process: mitigation of the environmental impact of production
    • Use of recycled materials; recyclability
    • Performance in operation (which is preferred to performance figures for factory testing)
    • Evidence of reductions in carbon emissions
    • Clear product technical information for specifiers, designers and installers
    • O + M information

    Both SmartNemesis and EcoStar (as demonstrated by their nomination) are strong in all of these areas. The EcoStar offers possibly the lowest embodied CO2 lighting solution available today, and the innovative SmartNemesis maximises energy saving through embedded intelligence on on board control as well as ground breaking energy efficiency. All PhotonStar products are developed to comply with our sustainable design philosophy.
