Learn how Inspire: Luton Sports Village worked with CILS and Enlighted to slash their energy consumption, cut costs and improve their visitor experience by upgrading to LED lighting and intelligent controls.


  • Rising energy costs:
    • Public pools and sporting facilities across the UK are struggling with unaffordable upkeep and energy bills. As a result, many have been forced to close. Inspire was facing similar challenges with inefficient lighting taking a large portion of their energy bills.

  • Compliance to emergency lighting standards:
    • Ensuring compliance to emergency lighting standards was costly, time-consuming and painstaking for Inspire Luton. With monthly, annual compliance tests and reports being done manually, Inspire was committed to finding a more effecient and affordable solution.

  • Safety:
    • Safety and visitor experience is a priority for Active Luton. The center’s outdated lighting system was no longer aligned with modern day expectations.


Inspire Sports Village partnered with Cils and Enlighted to complete a lighting retrofit to upgrade their facilities and emergency lighting system with energy efficient LEDs and a state-of-the-art Enlighted Control System. In addition to 85% lighting energy savings, the new lighting system saves a staggering 340 MWh each year. Inspire Luton has also achieved their cost savings goals by saving £68.5K on electricity costseach year.

“There were opportunities beyond just lighting I was particularly keen on. Those intelligent sensors could allow us to reduce further our cost base and be more efficient in the longer term.”
