Light Emitting Diode Public Lighting Replacement Work

The “Hong Kong's Climate Action Plan 2030+” published in 2017 outlined the medium and long term work against climate change and carbon reduction objectives. 65% to 70% carbon intensity reduction from the 2005 level is the target to be achieved by 2030. To cope with the objectives of reducing carbon intensity, we have launched the Light Emitting Diode (LED) replacement programme for the public lighting system in 2017/18, so as to reduce energy consumption. As compared with the conventional lights, LED luminaires use the safer materials, and have longer service life and better illumination. The use of LED luminaires could therefore provide a better and more environmentally friendly public lighting system. Under the programme, 6 500 road lights and 1 500 fluorescent tubes in footbridges and subways would be replaced with LED luminaires annually, while 4 500 floodlights at gantry signs and roadside directional signs would be replaced in five years.
