Exhibit at Vinci
The London Cleantech Cluster selected 8 companies to bring at the Vinci Technology Centre on the 21st March. The companies will exhibit their innovative technologies in front of Vinci’s current & prospective clients.
This tailored event helps companies to have a direct point of contact with high profile people in the building and facilities environments.
The exhibiting companies are:
– 8point3 LED
– Bachy Soletanche
– ElectraAssure Ltd
– Myriad CEG
– Tata Steel
– UPS Systems
8point3 LED manufactures & supplies innovative, bespoke LED lighting solutions to industrial and commercial clients across a broad range of sectors.
LED lighting typically records energy savings of 50-80% for our clients against equivalent traditional lights and significantly reduces the amount of CO2 generated by their organisation. With a guaranteed economic lifetime of 50,000 hours to L70 on our high grade chipsets, the absence of routine maintenance and re-lamping costs further add to the benefits of this unique technology.
We have taken the industry forward and away from simply replacing fluorescent tubes with inefficient, poor quality, LED tubes to innovative bespoke fittings designed and manufactured in Kent using high quality CREE® & Philips Lumileds chipsets. We are committed to making the transition to energy efficient LED lighting as affordable as possible for customers. We work to minimise capital expenditure through the use of Enhanced Capital Allowances where available and produce financial modelling to calculate the time it will take for savings in energy and maintenance costs to cover initial CAPEX.
We also offer a number of financial solutions through 8point3 Finance, provided and by our partners Asset Finance Management giving us an innovative proposition for customers through which capital expenditure for the installation of our products can be met out of the electricity and maintenance savings. The finance model is constructed around anticipated savings and is usually linked to predicted energy inflation rates over the financing period.

LoftZone is a new British company with innovative solutions for the loft space in houses. Our UK-made products will save you money, help the environment, increase safety and provide extra storage in the increasingly crowded houses we all live in. Our first product, StoreFloor, solves the conflict between insulation and storage in lofts or attics. Everyone knows they should insulate their loft, but if you put in the Government recommended level of insulation (270-400mm depending on country), then you can no longer use the space for storage or access without squashing the insulation – and squashing insulation stops it from working. The solution to this is a raised loft floor which protects the insulation beneath it, and allows for storage and access above.
- Provides a sturdy deck to protect the recommended level of insulation, while allowing the loft to be accessed safely and used for storage.
- Is adaptable, and will work in any loft – lofts are different shapes, and have varying supporting configurations, and spacing between joists can vary
- Is strong but lightweight – and meets floor load requirements.
- Is simple and fast to install – it can be done as DIY as well as by specialists.
- Is modular and can be installed without fully emptying the loft.
- Is economic.

Tata Steel is Europe’s second largest steel producer. We are able to offer a wide range of products, systems and services specifically developed for the construction market, including Colorcoat® pre-finished steel products.
Colorcoat® is the internationally recognised mark of quality and metal envelope expertise exclusively available from Tata Steel. We have been developing and manufacturing the Colorcoat® range of technically leading products for nearly 50 years and they are supported by a range of services, including comprehensive guarantees and technical guidance. Tata Steel is currently developing a range of energy generation and saving solutions integrated with the envelope structure.
Colorcoat Renew SC® by Tata Steel is an active solar air heating system. It works by capturing air warmed by the sun and drawing it into the building through a micro perforated Colorcoat Prisma® pre-finished steel collector installed as an additional skin onto a southerly facing wall, creating a cavity between the wall and the metal skin. A pre heated boundary layer of air is drawn through the micro perforations into the cavity by a ventilation fan. This can then either be distributed directly into the building as ventilation air or ducted into the main heating system to reduce energy load. The system can typically provide up to 50% of a building’s daytime space heating requirements, reducing operating costs and energy requirements. It is recognised within SBEM and therefore contributes to achieving compliance with building regulations as well as helping towards ventilated fresh air requirements for improving occupancy comfort.
