Lighting consumes approximately 19% of the world’s electricity generation. The CO2 that is produced is equivalent to 70% of global emissions from passenger vehicles and is three times more emissions produced than aviation. In commercial buildings lighting accounts for 40% or more of electricity costs.

The installation of smarter lighting controls and more efficient lighting fixtures can reduce lighting energy consumption by 30-50% or more.
