    UltraEfficient luminaires drive energy efficiency


    Signify continues to expand its UltraEfficient (UE) range, with new panels, recessed luminaires, and downlights that help businesses lower their carbon emissions, while delivering substantial cost savings over time1:


    Philips UltraEfficient TrueBlend is a recessed fitting, suitable for a wide variety of ceiling types that can simplify the process of switching to LEDs. Its modular design makes it possible to fit TrueBlend luminaires in the same cutout as existing fittings, delivering time and cost savings for the customer.


    Philips PowerBalance UE recessed luminaires and Philips LuxSpace UE downlights come with an ultra-high efficacy (up to 174 lm/W and 160 lm/W resp.), tunable white option, and a lifetime of 50,000 hrs at L90. With these UltraEfficient luminaires, users can yield energy savings of up to 21.7% compared to other comparable LED luminaires. With a similar look, feel and light distribution, they allow for an easy replacement of current luminaires. They also meet Signify’s strict Lighting for Circularity criteria4, with parts that are serviceable, reuseable, refurbishable and recyclable.


    The UltraEfficient range will be further extended with the Philips UltraEfficient CoreLine panel in May 2024.


    Remarkable, customizable and sustainably printed connected lighting from Philips MyCreation


    Developed to transform offices into inspiring places to work, the Philips MyCreation range is 3D-printed using bio-circular materials5, offering unparalleled functionality and customization, with a wide range of color, texture, and designs to choose from. All MyCreation products are printed-to-order, reducing waste as no excess products are produced.


    The MyCreation Essential downlighter is made from at least 55% bio-circular plastics. Integrated emergency lighting is available later this month, with wall-mounted lighting coming in May. The MyCreation Grand Pendant, also made with 55% bio-circular printed parts, offers stylish, and functional lighting design, with the ability to connect to different lighting systems.


    The GreenSpace PerfectFit is available in many sizes to fit any space in the ceiling. With housings and trims made with at least 65% post-industrial recycled polycarbonate, it is 3D-printed to order, making it an ideal solution for renovation projects.

    1This calculation compares Philips PowerBalance RC463B LED40S/840 W31L125 UE (174 lm/W) with the standard version RC463B LED40S/940 W31L125 (143 lm/W), which is a 21.7% energy saving and equals a carbon saving during the use phase (LCA-B6) of the product of 198 kg CO2eq per product (= 18% CO2eq saving), and Philips LuxSpace DN570B LED24S/840UE PSU-E C WH (141 lm/w) with DN570B LED24S/840UE PSU-E C WH (160 lm/W) = 13.5% improvement.

    240% of energy consumption and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions in the EU

    3This calculation is based on a base line of grams used plastics in a product x number of products sold (based on 12 months run rate) -> total plastic usage: 175.545 KG Achieved savings in grams plastics x number of products sold (based on same 12 months run rate) -> 121.810 KG.

    4Our circular economy model focuses on reducing waste and increasing flexibility, aligning the goals of our customers, the growth of our business, and the future resources of our planet.

    5Bio-circular materials are from waste and residues of biological origin from agriculture, forestry and related industries: Sustainability - Philips MyCreation Professional Lighting Solutions.
