Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, is unlocking the benefits of solar lighting to a much larger number of countries. The launch of Signify’s new integrated Philips Combo Charge Controller enables the emergence of hybrid solar systems. These enable streetlights to use clean solar-powered electricity when there is sunshine and the mains grid at other times. This is expected to open up new markets for solar-powered lighting. Adding to the many countries in Asia, Africa, South America, Australia and Spain, where Signify has already installed solar lighting.
Solar lighting is a key part of our commitment to sustainability as we aim to help our customers move to cleaner technologies. The expansion to new areas will strengthen our ambition to provide communities across the world with high-quality and clean solar-powered lighting.
The new combo charge controller is also able to boost the output of solar streetlights to 24,000 lumens and supports wireless remote monitoring functionality. The new technology will be integrated into all the solar lighting products Signify is launching this year.
