Insect-friendly lighting - a win for everyone
20.05. is World Bee Day
Arnsberg, May 2023 - Appropriately for World Bee Day, TRILUX, German market leader for technical lighting, explains what is important in insect-friendly lighting - and why refurbishment is not only beneficial to the environment.
Insects, particularly bees, play a vital role in our ecosystem. That's why the ecological implications of lighting on insect populations are becoming increasingly important - and should be considered when refurbishing. "With our outdoor portfolio, companies can quickly and easily convert conventional, outdated luminaires to smart and energy-efficient LED solutions," explains Stefan Metzner, Head of Outdoor Luminaire Sales at TRILUX. "These not only result in energy savings but also inadvertently play a significant role in nature conservation, environmental protection, and safeguarding insect populations," says Metzner.
Four main considerations:
LED savings in industry – 2.2 billion euros possible each year
Refurbishing obsolete lighting installations certainly pays: thanks to the high energy efficiency of LED solutions, EU-wide savings of around 2.2 billion euros per year can be achieved according to a survey by McKinsey management consultants.
LED and TCO – continuing downhill
According to a survey by Boston Consulting Group, the total cost of ownership (TCO) for linear LED systems will decrease by more than half up to 2020 as compared to 2014.
LED and light management – an unbeatable team
Energy consumption for lighting can be reduced by up to 80% by upgrading from conventional lighting systems to LED in combination with <link uk service trilux-services digital-services monitoring>a sensor-controlled light management system. Light management systems also offer extensive control and analysis functions.
Light management systems – 20 % growth up to 2020
A survey carried out by McKinsey management consultancy underlines the growing importance of light management systems: according to the study the market for light management systems will expand annually by around 20% until 2020.
Redevelopment? The best thing is to do it right.
High energy costs and new legal standards and regulations make the refurbishment of conventional outdoor lighting inevitable in the long term. But even without external pressure, a changeover makes sense due to the high savings potential and the sooner, the better. In combination with a light management system, LED refurbishment reduces energy consumption by up to 70 percent. With TRILUX as a full service provider - and a wide-ranging product and service portfolio, this potential can be leveraged quickly, easily and safely. Here is a selection of the latest tools and solutions:
