    Customer Challenge


    The goal was to outsource service management to experts, and to ensure high-level lighting performance in terms of light levels and energy consumption.

    The right lighting


    Discussions between the NUS and Philips led to the creation of a ‘Pay Per Lux’ solution, whereby Philips retains responsibility for the performance of the lighting over a 15 year period and the NUS pays for the energy consumed through a quarterly fee. The solution encompasses a total service and warranty solution that fits within the 15 year timescale of the contract.

    The “Pay per Lux” proposition helps the organization take advantage of LED lighting while minimizing energy costs far into the future, without a major capital outlay. The solution is also future proof as Philips replace lights during the life of the contract with the latest LED technology. The lighting is monitored online with annual reports on pre-defined metrics (KPI) shared with the National Union of Students, easing control over fixtures and cutting maintenance costs exponentially.
