Solar’s time to shine

    Harnessing the power of the sun as a renewable energy source


    Solar lighting technology is evolving rapidly, and Signify is at the forefront.  


    As the world leader in lighting, we're committed to innovations of all kinds — especially when they reduce the impact on the environment. It's why we're leading the way in advancing solar-powered lights, helping you meet your sustainability goals and bring light to off-the-grid communities.


    Did you know that more than 75% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions come from energy production and use? In order to achieve the targets set out in the EU Green Deal, and to improve the lives of people across the globe, it’s so important that we embrace clean energy. The adoption of solar powered and solar hybrid streetlighting in our cities will help to reduce emissions and accelerate the scale of renewables.
