Signify harnesses the power of sunlight in Africa, Asia and Middle East

Dubai, UAE, July 01, 2018:   Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, harnesses the power of sunlight in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.  After an initial product launch in India earlier this year, Signify is introducing Philips SunStay, an integrated solar street light, and Philips LifeLight, an innovative solar lantern, in Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Vietnam and on the African continent.

“As one of the fastest growing and most sustainable segments in public lighting, solar lighting is making a noticeable difference in rural areas and provides a much safer option to fuel-based lighting,” said Goktug Gur, President and CEO of Signify’s business in the Middle East, Turkey and Pakistan. 

“In the Middle East, almost 7% of all carbon dioxide emitted is caused by lighting; solar lighting is a far more energy efficient solution,” he added. 

Philips SunStay combines solar panel, luminaire, charge controller and battery in one housing. This makes it compact, easy to install and maintain. It also helps save on cabling costs, reduces carbon footprint and lowers overall capital and operational expenditure. With an output of 2,000 and 3,000 lumens and an efficacy of 175 lm/W, SunStay is more efficient than existing solar street lights.

Philips LifeLight is suitable for indoor and outdoor and designed for people in off-grid communities. The lantern comes with a USB port for charging phones and other devices, which is a widely appreciated feature . The second generation LifeLight has a new replaceable battery to extend its life further. 

On top of bringing light to households without electricity, solar-powered lanterns improve people’s health and can save lives. According to the World Health Organization, fuel-based lighting and heating cause close to 4 million deaths each year as people light and cook their homes through woodfires, candles and kerosene .

More information on Signify’s new solar lighting innovations can be found on the website.

Signify became the new company name of Philips Lighting as of May 16, 2018. The legal name of Signify will be adapted in the Middle East by the beginning of 2019.
