Moving to solar lighting may prove beneficial in the fight against the triple crisis of climate change, rising energy costs, and energy sourcing challenges. Solar lighting, which requires no fossil fuels to operate, should be included among post-COVID recovery plans throughout the EU.
The EU region requires an energy revolution. Municipalities can lead the charge with an integrated approach that incorporates the following five approaches.
Upgrading municipal lighting to LEDs represents one of the cheapest and fastest approaches that China is using to achieve its climate goals.
The switch to managed, connected LED can increase energy efficiency, lower costs, and reduce carbon emissions
The current energy crisis can be mitigated by embracing next-generation LED-based lighting integrated into the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT-enabled smart lighting can reduce lighting-related energy costs by up to 80%.
LED connected lighting and sensor-driven smart systems help to make buildings healthier for occupants, and in turn help the planet too.
