    Key topics and learnings

     

    At COP21 (The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference), with the Paris Agreement world leaders agreed to collectively address climate change, aiming to move our planet towards a more sustainable future.

     

    Already about 54% of global population lives in cities, and the ‘powering’ all required activities and services in cities corresponds to close to 75% of global carbon emissions. In fact public lighting alone accounts on average for half of a cities’ energy bill. Making the switch to connected LED-lighting can cut those costs by sometimes up to 80%. And perhaps even more importantly such a transition contributes to improving urban safety and quality of life.

     

    In ‘Benefits of upgrading city lighting' you will discover how cities can become epicenters of sustainable change by accelerating the renovation of existing infrastructure and leapfrogging to new energy-efficient technologies that are ready, reliable and available for immediate deployment.
