Sustainability in Philips led light- Lighting improves lives and creates sustainable value beyond illumination for our customers, our company and society. How are they working towards this goal? To begin with, they recognize that the world needs more light, more energy-efficient light, and more digital light. That's why they're leading a global switch to LED and connected lighting that will bring economic, environmental and social benefits to both our customers and people around the globe. Our lighting systems and sustainability programs aim to save energy create safer and more liveable cities, boost office productivity, help people learn and heal, help grow food and alleviate light poverty. We're also reducing resource use by working towards a circular economy through Light as a Service. And lastly, we're committed to sustainable operations - we aspire to carbon neutral operations, zero waste to landfill, and zero injuries.

Implementation-

The focus for Philips led light, the right lighting solutions to provide comfortable lux levels while also focusing on reducing energy consumption, and developing a sustainable light solution for the plants for the long-term duration of the project. Additionally, as part of this energy performance contracting project, Philips had to be able to guarantee these energy savings and lighting levels. Philips set out exactly the strategy and implementation plan for the LED lighting project. Philips began completely refurbishing the lighting in all in-scope areas, replacing the older, conventional mercury and sodium lights with Philips Green Vision Exceed LED luminaries. These LED road lights ensured light uniformity and maximum spacing between each lamppost, as well as significantly increasing the light levels are in line with expected international standards. In the turbine and storage areas, Gentle Space Gen 2 and Core Line High bay LED luminaires increased lighting levels and offered a consistent reduction in energy consumption, even at high ambient temperatures. Philips Tango LED floodlights were installed in other outside areas and around all fuel tank areas, which offer more than 40% energy saving compared to conventional floodlighting without compromising lighting levels in these critical areas. In desalination and transformer areas, Philips had to ensure that any fittings would be unaffected by moisture and installed Core Line Waterproof fixtures, while Core Line recessed lights were built into the power station offices.
