Energy and Sustainability

By the year 2050, more than 75 percent of the world’s population will live in cities. Faced with this unprecedented growth in our urban areas, and the associated growth in vehicular traffic volume, lighting will play an increasing role in providing enhanced levels of safety and pride in our streets, roadways and downtown areas.

Around the world, legislative imperatives are furthering the move towards “sustainable cities” where innovative urban lighting solutions not only reduce energy and maintenance costs, but also their carbon footprint.  Forward thinking urban planners, architects and engineers must introduce new lighting solutions into their future designs that provide sufficient lighting quality for a diverse urban environment while consuming less energy. These advanced light sources will replace many of the inefficient light sources that have been in use for many years and which, over time, will be gradually phased out.

In this time of financial constraint and energy challenges, OSRAM SYLVANIA gives state and local officials the tools to improve the quality of life on our roads, streets and in our cities and achieve more sustainable cities by lowering energy consumption and reducing CO2 emissions. We offer a wide range of advanced energy-saving halogen, high intensity discharge, fluorescent, inductive and LED light sources as well as cutting edge ballasts, power supplies and intelligent lighting controls. New white light options like SYLVANIA METALARC POWERBALL and LED street lighting systems, reduce operating costs and TOC while providing superior light quality. Whether you’re lighting an historic building, tourist landmark, facade, bridge, fountain, park, street or roadway, our sales and engineering professionals will work with you to specify solutions that suit your requirements and your budget.
