Public consultation on EU Green paper “Lighting the Future”
On the 15th of December 2011, as part of the Digital Agenda for Europe, the European Commission adopted a Green Paper and launched a public consultation on the future of solid state lighting.
In its Green Paper “Lighting the Future”, the Commission proposes measures to speed up the deployment of this innovative and eco-friendly lighting technology and foster the global leadership position of the European lighting industry.
For European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes “Expanding LED lighting is a ‘no-brainer’. It means more money in your pocket, and a healthier planet. Please give us your ideas on how to speed up its deployment and maximise the number of jobs and savings Europe can gain from expanding the use of LED lighting.”
PLUS partners as well as any other European cities can contribute to the process by responding to the Green Paper consultation on the website:
