Electric Skyline- Who We Are

We are Electric Skyline; We are one of the main lighting specialists in Ireland. We are based in Claremorris, Co Mayo after recently moving into our new offices on Dalton Street. We were established in 2008 by our three directors, Brendan, Bryan and Sean. The company has grown steadily since then even with the hostile economic environment. We are an original Irish start-up company that has used our lighting expertise to establish ourselves on the forefoot of lighting products and services. One of the main reasons for our success is the highly trained and dedicated staff that has been employed by us for many years now. Their expertise and loyalty is none short of phenomenal.

Ireland’s economy has become the fastest growing economy in Europe. One of the main reasons for this is the success of Irish start-up companies and the culture that has been established by the Irish people that encourages people to “have a go” and take risks. Electric Skyline is a main example of a company that has proven that anything can be achieved. We started off with three employees and we now employ 20 plus local staff. We also started with one county council lighting contract and we now are involved in several. We have grown in all areas of the business and are looking to improve every day.

The main growth of our company has come from LED lighting and the advantages that it has over incandescent lights. LEDs (light emitting diodes) have revolutionised the lighting industry and the timeline for further advancements is shorter every day. LEDs require less energy because of their low watt usage, turn on instantly and omit the same level of lumens as competitive lamps. We can translate these advantages to ensure a decrease in lighting costs dramatically in public, commercial, internal and external lighting.

We recently updated a large showroom from florescent tubes to new LED fittings. There was originally more than 500 fittings which generated 15,000 watts of energy. We then replaced each light with an LED fitting which only generated 4,600 watts of energy reducing the lighting costs by 69%.

This is only one example of a company that has taken advantage of our services and have seen the rewards.

We are looking forward to the coming year and will keep you posted on lighting advancements and news on the development of your number one lighting specialists in Ireland.

Electric Skyline is delighted to announce our participation in this year’s ISO 50001 exhibition in Croke Park, Dublin on May 20th.

Electric Skyline works alongside large corporations to ensure that lighting throughout factories, offices or communal areas have up-to date lighting technology that establishes the lowest energy consumption possible, while providing adequate lighting. Electric Skyline takes all the hassle and provides the best service and results for all its client’s needs.

The ISO (International Organisation of Standardisation) is an international federation of national standard bodies, enabling organisations to establish systems and processes in order to improve and maintain high levels of performance. The ISO 50001 is an international Energy Management standard. The main aim of this standard is to reduce, control and monitor energy consumption throughout a company. It involves continuous planning, implementation and reporting to improve every day.

The process includes-

 

  • Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy
  • Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy
  • Use data to better understand and make decisions about energy use
  • Measure the results
  • Review how well the policy works
  • Continually improve energy management.

 

A great day is promised with fantastic speakers and high quality exhibitors in all areas of energy management.
