Dutch Town Is First in World to Install Bat-Friendly LED Street Lights

Dutch Town Is First in World to Install Bat-Friendly LED Street Lights Signify, the world leader in lighting, today completed its first bat-friendly lighting installation in a town. Rare bats in Zuidhoek-Nieuwkoop, in the Netherlands can now go about their nocturnal business undisturbed thanks to new connected LED street lights designed specially to emit light that does not affect their natural senses and rythms. The street lights use a special light recipe that is perceived by bats as darkness, yet which provides enough illumination for residents, helping make the roads and pavements safer, while being highly energy efficient. The project illustrates Signify’s leadership in developing innovative LED technology that is both smart and supports conservation and sustainability. Read more »
