“Philips Lighting partnered with Kolkata Municipal Corporation and the Climate Group to help municipal corporations understand practical ways in which they could make substantial cuts in urban emissions and savings on energy from street lighting.” - Aditi Dass, The Climate Group

The Project

The Climate Group is an independent, not-for-profit organization working internationally with government and business leaders to advance smart policies and technologies to cut global emissions and accelerate a clean industrial revolution. Its global coalition of companies, states, regions and cities around the world recognize the economic and environmental imperatives of taking decisive actions now. The Climate Group is working with the world’s most influential business and government leaders to make clean technologies commercially viable. The group wanted to take up the very new technology - LED lighting which consumes about 40-50% less energy than the conventional sodium vapor lamps. This reduction of 40-50% goes up to as high as 70-80% if the LEDs are controlled by smart adaptive controls.

The Solution

Philips Lighting partnered with Kolkata Municipal Corporation and the Climate Group to help municipal corporations understand practical ways in which they could make substantial cuts in urban emissions and save on energy from street lighting. In Kolkata, the group has retrofitted around 300 street lights with Philips Roadstar LED streetlights.
