Norway seems to be among those who undertake to lower this parameter.
In one of the streets of the village, the one that passes near the town of Hole, have been installed street lights with LED lights that reduce the intensity of the lighting when there are no vehicles in transit. A banality? According to the weekly energy saving that this invention allows, it seems not!
The road on which these streetlights have been installed with self-supporting technology is 8 kilometers long and runs along the small town of Hole.
When there are no cars, bicycles or pedestrians to follow, the LED lights decrease the lighting capacity by 80%, reaching 20% of their operation.
In doing so, it has been calculated that 2100 kWh of energy are saved each week, more or less the one consumed with 20 hours of irons on and 4 hours of plasma TVs on.
The use of LEDs and the implementation of numerous energy saving plans throughout the country since the 2000s have already significantly reduced energy consumption in the country.
Already from 2017, inter alia, the Norwegian sovereign wealth fund (the richest investment fund in the world) has stopped investing in companies that derive more than 30% of their earnings from fossil fuels (oil and gas), thus confirming that we want to continue on a more ecologically oriented economic policy.
