The replacement of the old floodlighting system with state-of-the-art LED technology is a perfect match for the city’s ambition to become climate neutral by 2030. “Our teams worked on replacing the old luminaires with state-of-the-art LED technology. With this energy-efficient field lighting, electricity consumption has been reduced by less than half. Good for a CO₂ reduction of more than 42 tonnes a year!” Joline CULUS, Project Manager Relighting.
In Leuven, Energy transition are not just words. In order to reduce the net emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO₂), methane, or nitrous oxide to zero, the city of Leuven is taking numerous initiatives to make its patrimony more energy-efficient and greener. Maarten Andries (Operation Manager): “As the city’s technical maintenance partner since 2012, our teams are doing everything they can to support the board in achieving this ambition. The renovation of the outdoor lighting on the football fields of the Boudewijnstadion in Kessel-Lo and Ymeria Wijgmaal is a good example of this.”
