With the implementation of the LED's GO project, Radboud University is saving 65% on electrical energy for lighting. In the Huygens, Grotius, University Library and Elinor Ostrom/Gymnasion buildings, conventional lighting will be replaced by sustainable LED lighting.
LED lighting is much more energy-efficient than conventional lighting, which is good for the environment. However, it also provides considerable cost savings. Energy costs for lighting decrease, and because this sustainable lighting has a much longer lifespan than traditional lighting, maintenance costs also go down. Moreover, the bright lighting provides a pleasant (working) environment for employees, students and visitors.
