Leveraging the great potential of LEDs for new store applications


The perfect lighting is more actual than ever before for brick and mortar retailers. This will be evident at the Lighting Designer Zone or the Italian Lighting Lounge at this year's EuroShop, too. Retailers can not only gain a competitive advantage by using dynamic lighting, but also save costs. Gianna Lara Bergmann from EnergieAgentur.NRW (Germany) explains how and when for example LEDs can be used efficiently in retail.
