Sweden tackled the Global Lighting Challenge by going local and performing the Swedish Lighting Challenge. We are pleased to invite you to participate in our two events on lighting at CEM/MI. Lighting has evolved fast during the last decade giving great innovations and multiple benefits. Also, it is easy to save 50 or even 75 percent energy by switching to efficient LED lighting, which can significantly decrease carbon dioxide emissions globally.
