WHY SHOULD YOU CHANGE YOUR LIGHTING?
With the ban on fluorescent lamps being enforced across the EU on 25 August 2023 and halogen bulbs being phased out by 1 September 2023, now is the time to start thinking about the alternative options and potential savings if you haven’t already. The rising energy prices in recent years are all the evidence we need that costs can suddenly sky-rocket. The time for hesitation is over – you need to take action right away.
Make the most of the generous subsidies on offer for efficient lighting so you can save energy and money. By switching to state-of-the-art lighting technology, you can cut down the related energy consumption, costs and CO2 emissions by as much as 91%.
WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS?
1. REPLACE YOUR LIGHT SOURCES
If you only choose to replace the light source, there’s a potential safety risk due to components not being compatible.
2. REPLACE YOUR LIGHTS
If you replace each whole light with another whole light, you’ll improve the efficiency of your lighting but you’ll still be missing out on even more potential savings.
3. REPLACE YOUR LIGHTS AND PLAN OUT YOUR LIGHTING
Rethinking your lighting will generally give you the chance to reduce the number of lights to improve your efficiency even further.
4. PLAN OUT AND MANAGE YOUR LIGHTING
By adding smart lighting management to your plans, you can keep your lighting usage, and in turn costs, to the bare minimum with motion and daylight sensors
IS IT WORTH IT?
Depending on your field of activity and saving potential, you could be seeing the return on your investment in next to no time. Here are three finished projects and the associated annual savings.
AM I ELIGIBLE FOR SUBSIDIES?
Many countries are offering state subsidies for energy-efficient lighting. We recommend that you find out about the requirements where you live before you start making plans.

ARE RETROFIT LAMPS A VALID OPTION?
You’re bound to have come across retrofit lamps when you’ve been doing your research. While this might look like an interesting option, it’s actually not the best choice if you’re looking for a long-term and risk-free solution. Along with the safety concerns, CO2 emissions aren’t reduced as much as they could be. That’s why we strongly recommend a solution with ultra-efficient LED technology instead.
