    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.
