Opening of the "Shapes of light" lighting installation, relying on LED technology, in the headquarters of the Commission, in Brussels

Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Digital Agenda, and Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Inter-Institutional Relations and Administration, inaugurated "Shapes of Light", a 12-month long lighting installation that relies on advanced LED technology, which will be displayed in the entrance hall of the Commission's headquarters in Brussels.
LED lighting is energy-efficient and versatile. The installation shows the potential of LEDs in functional and decorative lighting and is part of the Commission's efforts to promote the wider deployment of innovative LED-based lighting in Europe. LEDs substantially improve the quality of lighting and open up new possibilities for lighting design innovation. Faster deployment in public and private spaces will help reduce energy consumption from lighting in Europe by 20% by 2020, one of the targets of the Digital Agenda for Europe.
Andre Papoular, CEO of Schréder, and Denis Mortiaux, Managing Director at Uitrusting Schréder and Constructions électriques Schréder, were the guests of honour of the inauguration.
