ENELTEC at the United Nations special meeting announced that the combination of intelligent interconnected LED road lighting and standardized urban data will effectively contribute to the achievement of the UN sustainable development goals.
According to a report released jointly by Philips Lighting and the World Urban Data Committee (WCCD), greenhouse gas emissions by 63% were reduced in Los Angeles using smart interconnected LED lighting. This smart city solution can be scaled around the world, bringing benefits such as reducing crime rates, securing traffic and even developing the economy.
ENELTEC advocated to 2025, 100% of road lighting to LED lighting, lighting in the global energy consumption ratio will be reduced from 15% to 8%.
Philips Lighting recently announced at the United Nations special meeting, through the introduction of intelligent Internet LED lighting system, can save urban energy consumption, urban carbon emissions by nearly two-thirds.
At the 'Local 2030: Hub for Sustainability Solutions' meeting at the United Nations headquarters in Manhattan, New York, Philips Lighting stressed that in order to gain a more intuitive understanding of the value of smart interconnected LED lighting systems, high quality data is needed. As a result, Philips Lighting announced its partnership with the World Urban Data Committee (WCCD), which will work with cities around the world to provide solutions that meet the needs of high-quality data analysis.
The Philips Lighting and World Urban Data Committee jointly issued a report 1 shows that: through the use of intelligent interconnected LED road lighting system, the United States Los Angeles energy consumption in 2016 reduced by 63%, saving $ 9 million in expenses and reduced the Los Angeles The total annual greenhouse gas emissions from public lighting are 47,000 tones, which is equivalent to the sum of the annual emissions of about 10,000 passenger cars.
Philips Lighting said that if the intelligent interconnected LED road lighting system can be introduced into cities around the world, then the city's annual carbon emissions and electricity spending will be substantially reduced.
