Amid the current energy crisis, the mood was low heading into COP27. One thing is for sure: green lighting is essential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
With the banning of conventional fluorescent lighting and funding opportunities for infrastructure projects, 2023 is the year of LEDification and smart cities.
Despite the financial and ecological burden, outdated technology that pollutes our planet is still prominent. Energy efficient lighting is the best solution.
Many countries are at or near electricity grid capacity. Switching to connected LED lighting offers immediate energy savings.
With high energy efficiency, connected LED lighting can help with energy conservation, climate action, and the economic crisis.
Solar street lighting should be included in EU post-COVID recovery plans to help fight climate change, rising energy costs, and energy uncertainty.
Municipalities can lead the EU energy revolution with an integrated approach, including energy conservation, efficiency programs, and smart technologies.
Upgrading municipal lighting to LEDs is one of the cheapest and fastest approaches that China is using to achieve its climate goals and create the smart cities.
