Philips are to replace the current decorative lighting scheme at Birmingham’s Bullring shopping centre with a new sustainable LED solution.

A joint venture with the Bullring, Weblight and Mitie, Philips are to create a more energy efficient lighting solution for the shopping centre, which it hopes will save 85% of the current energy use.

The move to LED technology will reportedly save around £34,000, or 251 tonnes of CO2 emissions, per annum.

The Bullring was completed back in 2003 and attracts around 40 million visitors per year.
