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Despite the financial and ecological burden, outdated technology that pollutes our planet is still prominent.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 an effective solution in enabling immediate energy savings.
Connected LED lighting can help confront the energy, climate, and economic crises
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.
