Verde LED retrofit Europe’s largest purpose built data centre with energy efficient LED lighting


Verde LED have recently completed the lighting retrofit of the Global Switch data centre, in London’s Docklands.

The building, almost 1 million sq. ft. in size, has an energy demand equivalent to the domestic energy consumption for the city of Glasgow.

The project has delivered energy savings of more than 65% to Global Switch, a significant reduction in their carbon footprint, as well as on-going maintenance cost savings.

Payback on the investment was just over one and a half years.
