Data Halls- Lighting Quality & Sustainability in a Net Zero Carbon Culture

Net zero carbon legislation for 2050 means that all new builds and refurbishments need to design building services to achieve net zero carbon today if they are to stay compliant with current legislation and achieve a degree of low carbon future-proofing from 2022 on the journey to 2050 and NZC. Lighting installations are no exception, but there is an additional consideration. The quality of light needs to be of sufficient quality to allow safe and productive working for data centre staff. This is particularly true in data halls as typically these spaces are windowless and therefore entirely dependent on electric lighting to enable critical works to be carried out accurately and productively. This means that a balance on lighting energy consumption and the delivered quality of light is essential. Another sustainability consideration is the selection of lighting products. There is legislation covering circularity and make up material content.  There are also international standards regarding embodied and operational carbon. In conclusion, it’s not just a case of keeping the lights on, there are many other considerations to take into account when effectively lighting a data hall.
