According to relevant data, China's lighting electricity consumption accounts for about 12% of the country's total electricity consumption, exceeding 400 billion kWh, which is almost equivalent to the UK's national electricity consumption for one year. According to the Taiyuan Urban Lighting Management Office, during the “Eleventh Five-Year Plan” period, the lighting of provincial cities has developed rapidly, and it has played a significant role in improving urban functions, improving the urban environment, and improving people's living standards. However, the rapid development of urban lighting, especially landscape lighting, has increased the demand for energy. Some buildings have installed super-standard and ultra-luxury landscape lighting, which consumes a lot of energy. According to the previous survey, the city's urban lighting management office found that 42 large enterprises, institutions and units in more than ten streets, including Yingze Street, Fuxi Street and Changfeng Street, used powerful searchlights and high-power floodlights in landscape lighting. High-brightness, high-energy lamps such as lamps and large-area neon lights.
To this end, the provincial capital will strictly control the energy consumption of landscape lighting such as public facilities and large buildings. It is strictly forbidden to build landscape lighting projects with excessive brightness and energy consumption. It is strictly forbidden to use powerful searchlights, high-power floodlights, large-area neon lights, etc. in landscape lighting. High brightness, high energy consumption lamps. Stop building large-scale decorative lighting fixtures on the main roads of the city, as well as lighting fixtures without light control fixtures. While saying “no” to high-energy-consumption lamps, it will actively promote high-pressure sodium lamps, metal halide lamps, electrodeless lamps, and semiconductor light-emitting diodes (LEDs) in the future use and selection of light sources, lamps, and control systems for urban lighting. ) High-efficiency lighting source products.
It is reported that in May this year, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development issued the "Regulations on Urban Lighting Management", clearly pointing out the promotion of the use of energy-saving and environmentally-friendly lighting new technologies and products, and actively adopting efficient light sources and lighting fixtures, energy-saving ballasts and Control appliances and advanced light control methods. On June 17, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development issued the “Notice on Strengthening Urban Lighting Energy Management and Strictly Controlling Landscape Lighting”, requiring strict control over the scope and scale of landscape lighting.
