Philips: The World Needs To Get Smarter
Lighting solutions are becoming more intelligent from an environmental perspective while offering benefits to our physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Pressure to update our energy-consuming fixtures to their more efficient, less wasteful counterparts is increasing on both an individual and a municipal level. While minimizing our personal carbon footprints is still greatly important, it’s cities that consume 70% of all energy used today. And, as previously discussed in our recent article The World Needs More Light, that amount is sure to increase with population size.
More efficient use of light, however, can address some of our most pressing environmental challenges at a global level. Not only can we help resolve the energy crisis, resource scarcity, and climate change, but we can accomplish these things while lowering costs — if only we can unlock the right opportunities.
