Amey’s innovative green lighting approach is delivering cost savings to clients nationwide while slashing emissions and waste.  

Street lighting is the single biggest use of energy for most local authorities. That’s why Amey’s proven solution is so important. Switching delivers a typical energy of up to 75% compared to the use of high intensity discharge lamps, an impressive saving for local authorities.  

Added benefits include flexibility allowing for lighting levels to be adapted to usage along with reduced light pollution and surveillance costs.
