Switch to energy-efficient lighting

Replacing traditional light sources with LED is a good investment for both
energy consumption and the environment. Energy consumption can be reduced by up to 80%, depending on previous lighting. LED light sources have a significantly longer lifespan than traditional light sources, which means fewer replacements. They are completely flicker-free and give full light immediately, in addition they are free of mercury and other environmentally hazardous gases.

Phasing out inefficient light sources

In accordance with the EU directive, light bulbs, halogen and low-energy lamps have been phased out or will be gradually phased out and replaced with energy-efficient light sources in the form of LED light sources. Remaining halogen and low energy lamps are phased out step by step.

Phase out of mercury lightsources starting February 2023

An updated regulation of the RoHS directive means that all light sources that contain mercury will be phased out starting in February 2023. Affected light sources are compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), T5  and T8 fluorescent tubes, and in 2027, metal halide and high pressure sodium lamps. See more details about this via the link below.
