Abstract: The GreenLight Programme is a voluntary pollution prevention initiative encouraging non-residential electricity consumers (public and private), referred to as Partners, to commit towards the European Commission to install energy-efficient lighting technologies in their facilities when (1) it is profitable, and (2) lighting quality is maintained or improved. GreenLight was launched on 7 February 2000. The objective of the GreenLight programme is to reduce the energy consumption from indoor and outdoor lighting throughout Europe, thus reducing polluting emissions and limiting the global warming. The objective is also to improve the quality of visual conditions while saving money.This report analyses the results of the GreenLight programme during year 2012. It calculates total annual energy savings, the type of projects implemented in terms of technologies, buildings, companies and pay back time. By the end of 2012, 731 Partners from across the European Union, plus Norway and Switzerland, participated in GreenLight. For 2012, 46 new Partners joined the programme. This report assesses the achievements of the scheme in the year 2012.
