    Clean energy with hybrid and solar street lighting

    Not just less energy, but also less carbon

     

    More than 75% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions come from energy production and use, so it’s clear why the EU must decarbonize its energy system to reach the Green Deal’s climate objectives. The Green Deal calls for a number of measures, including linking renewables to the grid, promoting connected technologies, and boosting the energy efficiency of electrical products and devices.

    What Signify's Green Switch can do


    Energy efficiency battles climate change by reducing energy usage. Clean energy battles climate change by decarbonizing the energy that is used. Signify’s solar and hybrid-solar street lights reduce carbon emissions while leveraging the most cost-efficient energy source around: the sun. Infrastructure projects such as connected street lighting retrofits create on average 19 local jobs for every €1 million spent, benefitting the environment and the economy and building the digital platforms needed to ensure a green future.

    Signify solar lighting is a clean alternative

     

    As part of Signify's Green Switch initiative, solar lighting is being promoted as a cost-effective and cleaner technology alternative to traditional street lighting.

    • Circular economy

      Circular economy

      The circular economy has everything to do with sustainable consumption, reuse, and eliminating waste. Signify’s recyclable 3D-printed luminaires cut the carbon footprint for lighting in half. Circular streetlights reduce maintenance costs by 60%, with zero waste to landfill. And Light-as-a-Service approaches promote sustainability along the entire lighting lifecycle.

    • Clean mobility

      Clean mobility

      Charge stations built into digital streetlights support the Green Deal’s goal of a million EV charging points in Europe by 2025. Savings from energy-efficiency renovations and LED and solar street lighting can power tens of thousands of EVs without extra power generation.

    • Biodiversity

      Biodiversity

      A farm-to-fork approach helps to preserve the world’s food supply. LED grow lights boost crop quality and yield with up to half the energy consumption. Lighting designed for vertical farming near cities reduces the carbon and water use, and reduces food miles, while aquaculture lighting increases yield, improves feed conversion and improves animal welfare.
