Clean energy with hybrid and solar street lighting

    Energy saving solutions that leads to less carbon 


    Signify’s solar and hybrid-solar streetlights reduce carbon emissions while leveraging the most cost-efficient energy source: the sun. Harnessing that power takes the energy strain off the grid, which helps to alleviate the need for extra power stations and those savings can then be used to support integrated digital initiatives, such as powering electric vehicles.


    Solar streetlights also don’t need to be “plugged in”, so they aren’t governed by existing electric infrastructure or municipal network. That gives us the freedom to install lighting where it is needed, improving safety for citizens in remote areas.

    Solar boosting energy efficiency and safety on Greek island


    Signify installed solar luminaires to protect the island’s environment while enhancing safety in places that were insufficiently illuminated before.

    Solar lights the way towards sustainability


    The rise of solar energy is leading to a shift in the way we power lighting across the world.

    Signify offers product portfolio meeting new EU Ecodesign and Energy labeling regulations


    Signify confirms that its leading lighting portfolio will meet the new EU Ecodesign and Energy labeling regulations, which will affect all lighting products in the EU Member States from September 2021 onwards.

    Driving sustainability breakthroughs with the IoT


    Since sustainability is a system design issue, how can IoT systems help create the necessary conditions for making fundamental changes in how we consume and structure our economic life?

    Seville improves citizens’ safety with Signify’s solar street lights


    Solar lighting will enhance the safety of visitors to the Infanta Elena Park in Seville, Spain. During the pilot project, 20 Philips SunStay solar street lights will be installed in the park, underscoring both Seville’s and Signify’s commitment to sustainability.

    What Signify's Green Switch can do

    Energy efficiency battles climate change by reducing energy usage. Clean energy battles climate change by decarbonizing the energy that is used. Signify’s solar and hybrid-solar street lights reduce carbon emissions while leveraging the most cost-efficient energy source around: the sun. Infrastructure projects such as connected street lighting retrofits create on average 19 local jobs for every €1 million spent, benefitting the environment and the economy and building the digital platforms needed to ensure a green future.

    • Circular economy

      Circular economy

      The circular economy has everything to do with sustainable consumption, reuse, and eliminating waste. Signify’s recyclable 3D-printed luminaires cut the carbon footprint for lighting in half. Circular streetlights reduce maintenance costs by 60%, with zero waste to landfill. And Light-as-a-Service approaches promote sustainability along the entire lighting lifecycle.

    • Clean mobility

      Clean mobility

      Charge stations built into digital streetlights support the Green Deal’s goal of a million EV charging points in Europe by 2025. Savings from energy-efficiency renovations and LED and solar street lighting can power tens of thousands of EVs without extra power generation.

    • Biodiversity


      A farm-to-fork approach helps to preserve the world’s food supply. LED grow lights boost crop quality and yield with up to half the energy consumption. Lighting designed for vertical farming near cities reduces the carbon and water use, and reduces food miles, while aquaculture lighting increases yield, improves feed conversion and improves animal welfare.
