Nowadays lighting systems consume about 19 percent of the worldwide electricity production. Therefore, saving considerations are of increasing importance, especially for enterprises, since their energy bills comprise a significant part of the total costs.

Since a few years, alternative solutions have been discussed and considered, but many still shy away from the decision as the development of the market has not been clear. t.

Even in the medium term a LED solution cannot be avoided.

The Light Emitting Diode is a state-of-the-art technology and makes conventional solutions look outdated . In combination with light controlling systems, up to 80 percent savings are possible. According to experts, 75 percent of all light systems will be LEDs by 2020.

The aviation- and car industries have led the way. For years they have trusted on the reliable LEDs, i because in terms of safety and longevity no compromises can be made.There is a political target too. The German federal government wants to reduce the CO2-emission by 21 percent by 2012, and even by 40 percent by 2020 (compared with 1990). An ambitious target setting new standards for the topic “Corporate Social Responsibility”.With LEDs the way is marked ou, because they do not contain ecologically harmful substances, are completely recyclable and consume much less energy.

Also in terms of technology there is no comparison between conventional lamps and LEDs. The new technology is highly superior; LEDs have high colour saturation and their durability of about 60,000-80,000 hours is much longer than that of conventional lighting systems. Another advantage are the resulting very low maintenance costs.

However, the many advantages will only apply when certified high-quality products are used, the production methods and test procedures are comparable with the European standards, and proven professional know-how as well as certified safety are used.
