    Delivering decarbonization with digital connected LED lighting

    The path to climate neutrality is digital

     

    Although they cover less than 2% of the earth’s surface, cities consume 78% of the world's energy and produce more than 60% of greenhouse gas emissions. With urbanization rapidly increasing, the only path to achieving climate neutrality is to make cities greener and smarter. The good news is that green digital solutions—from smart building systems to digital twins to AI and IoT and beyond—can achieve results in nearly every sector of the economy while simultaneously improving people’s safety and well-being.

    What Signify’s Green Switch can do


    Digitalization of the lighting infrastructure is one of the easiest, quickest, and most effective ways of decarbonizing the built environment. 

     

    LED-based Interact connected lighting systems from Signify can reduce the energy needs of city and building lighting by up to 80%, potentially decreasing carbon emissions by 50 million tons per year in the EU27 countries alone.

     

    But that’s just a start. The watchword for achieving the decarbonization potential of green digital solutions is ecosystem. Interact connected lighting systems establish an open digital platform on which you can build applications such as presence detection and air quality monitoring, share commands and sensor data with other digitalized services, and deliver IoT and other advanced capabilities for achieving climate goals wherever lighting is deployed. The digital connected lighting infrastructure can also host new communications technologies such as Li-Fi—a game changing capability that delivers high-speed connectivity through LED light itself.

     

    In addition, BrightSites smart poles from Signify offer an end-to-end solution that cities can use to form a high- bandwidth wireless network. A network including smart poles, digital kiosks, and gigabit-enabled luminaires can densify communications networks and host digital assets, such as sensors and cameras, and other services.

     

    For citizens, the tangible benefits are many. For example, connectivity is proven to improve citizen safety and security while helping to bridge the digital divide. This is especially valuable in areas with poor or restricted connectivity, providing long underserved citizens with the digital access they deserve.
