International Year of Light 2015
In January 2015, it was launched the year of the worldwide celebration of light science and its applications: the light-based technologies for sustainable development and solutions to global challenges in energy, environment, internet and communication, health, education and art.
The International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015) is an initiative of UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) aiming to raise the public awareness in respect with the optical technologies and their tremendous impact in several fields of the society life.
In this context, our company, leader of the lighting market in Romania since 1998, welcomes the IYL 2015 at local level and joins it by promoting several projects in which LED technology is a significant component.
In 2015 we have implemented and are managing 11.315 LED lighting points within the Romanian public lighting infrastructure, respectively we are managing: 9.306 LED lighting points within Bucharest public lighting infrastructure, 1.794 LED lighting points in Drobeta Turnu Severin, 165 in Braila, 50 in Baia Mare. Currently we have 5 on-going LED solution projects within 5 of the towns where Luxten Lighting Company is the delegated public lighting system operator (Bucharest, Drobeta Turnu Severin, Oradea, Braila, Baia Mare). We also have several pilot projects of interior lighting systems with LED in commercial areas, residential areas and public institutions.
We believed in LED technology since its very beginning. Our first pilot project was in Bucharest, in 2009. Later, in 2014 we implemented a pioneer LED project with telemetering system for the rehabilitation of a traditional architectural area in Bucharest – Rediscovering the Urban Identity of the Old Dorobanti Neighborhood – the biggest project financed by EBRD in Romania so far. In March 2015, the project was awarded with Trail Blazer Prize within EU EBRD Sustainable Energy Excellence Awards 2015.
We hope that our projects with LED technology will bring more comfort in the life of their beneficiaries!
