What does the phase-out mean and what is affected?
The phasing-out requirement means, among other things, that conventional and compact fluorescent lamps may no longer be produced on the European market. The commonly used T8 and T5 fluorescent lamps as well as compact fluorescent lamps (CLF) are examples of light sources that are affected.
Products that are already installed or stocked may continue to be used and wholesalers may sell out their current stock. If you own or use lighting installations that currently use one of these light sources, it is important to consider long-term solutions, since the products will not be available in the future.
Switch to energy-efficient LED luminaires
High-quality LED lighting is energy efficient and emits a lot of light in relation to the energy consumed. Energy consumption is significantly lower, while the lifetime is longer than that of fluorescent luminaires, and by using CLO (Constant Light Output), your lighting solution can be further optimised.
The luminaires provide the same amount of light throughout their entire working life, while enabling you to save energy. With CLO, you can avoid unnecessary installation, which means less installed output and, in some cases, even fewer luminaires.
Reuse old luminaires
With the circular initiative Re:Furbish, you can renew, reuse and rebuild existing lighting solutions to meet the demands of tomorrow. Older fluorescent luminaires can be converted into energy-efficient and eco-friendly LED luminaires, which also increase both the light quality and light comfort.
