Benefits of upgrading city lighting

Attend this webinar and learn how we can save cost, reduce emissions and improve socially


Live on Oct 26 at 4:30 PM CET / 10:30 AM EDT


At COP21 (The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference), with the Paris Agreement world leaders agreed to collectively address climate change, aiming to move our planet towards a more sustainable future.


Already about 54% of global population lives in cities, and the ‘powering’ all required activities and services in cities corresponds to close to 75% of global carbon emissions. In fact public lighting alone accounts on average for half of a cities’ energy bill. Making the switch to connected LED-lighting can cut those costs by sometimes up to 80%. And perhaps even more importantly such a transition contributes to improving urban safety and quality of life.


In ‘Benefits of upgrading city lighting' you will discover how cities can become epicenters of sustainable change by accelerating the renovation of existing infrastructure and leapfrogging to new energy-efficient technologies that are ready, reliable and available for immediate deployment.


Join this webinar presented by Harry Verhaar, and see how the three major benefits for urban centers – budget savings, lower emissions and social improvement – are well within reach!

Harry Verhaar is Head of Global Public & Government Affairs at Philips Lighting. Harry is passionate about accelerating the worldwide transition to a more sustainable society.
