UAE. LG Electronics (LG) today announced that it has implemented one of the world’s biggest installations of LED lighting technology in its Twin Towers headquarters buildings in the Korean capital, Seoul.
LG’s Twin Towers headquarters buildings have been outfitted with energy and cost-saving LG LED lights and a dedicated lighting control system. LG has estimated that in a year, the lighting systems on both buildings will save a total of 1,717 MWh of electricity, for a 53% saving over equivalent buildings using conventional fluorescent lighting technology.
Commenting on LG’s achievement, Mr. H.S. Paik, President of LG Electronics Gulf FZE said, “This accomplishment shows that LED lighting can deliver cost and energy savings in commercial scales, while being more eco-friendly at the same time. This feat was only possible because of breakthroughs in LED technology that LG has pioneered.”
LG’s LED lighting technology delivers energy and cost savings over conventional lighting as it is more efficient and has a longer life. LG has estimated that its lineup of lighting solutions provides energy savings ranging from 20-80%, and can last five to ten times longer. This performance can be enhanced using LG’s digital controls, which can dim LED lighting according to ambient brightness and activate it via motion sensors.
Mr. H.S. Paik concluded: “LG is committed to leading research and development in LED lighting, and we will continue to apply real-world solutions through technological breakthroughs.”
