Thanks to a pilot project launched by the en.lighten UNEP initiative, energy-efficient OSRAM LED lamps have been installed in the University of Belgrade. By replacing the old lighting with modern LEDs, the university faculty will be able to save up to 75% of the energy consumed in this auditorium every year.
University of Belgrade: “Atrium A” auditorium as en.lighten polot project in Serbia
In cooperation with OSRAM and the Serbian Ministry of Energy, Development and Environmental Protection, the en.lighten initiative chose “Atrium A” of the Belgrade Faculty of Mechanical Engineering for the implementation of a pilot project in Serbia. By replacing the old, inefficient lighting with modern LEDs, the university faculty will be able to save up to 75 % of the energy consumed in this auditorium every year. In addition, CO2 emissions will be reduced by about 63 tons per year.
In November 2013 the official inauguration of the Belgrade University’s new lighting concept took place. “The pilot project is a benchmark for the whole of Serbia. We hope that it will increase awareness of the significance and positive effect of energy-efficient lighting and will be just the first of a series of projects of this kind”, emphasized Miroslav Laješić, CEO OSRAM Serbia.
