    Key topics and learnings

     

    Did you know that more than 75% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions come from energy production and use? In order to achieve the targets set out in the EU Green Deal, and to improve the lives of people across the globe, it’s so important that we embrace clean energy. The adoption of solar powered and solar hybrid streetlighting in our cities will help to reduce emissions and accelerate the scale of renewables.

    Solar energy is renewable, free, and available everywhere on the planet. Solar technology can help more people access cheap, portable, and clean power, that it needs low maintenance.


    Solar street lighting can decrease energy consumption by up to 100% compared to a conventional solution in case of off-grid systems.

     

    Let us inspire you by sharing some wonderful projects coming from different places in the world.

     

    How we, together can create a brighter lives and a better world.
